SMOKING WHEN ENGINE BREAKING

1989 Land Rover Defender

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Land Rover Defender 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 129000 miles

My landrover smokes quite heavily when engine breaking. Especially when cold. I've been told this could be the valve stem oil seals. I know the old gal has done some milage but it pulls ok and accelerates without any smoke. Any advice would be welcome cheers

I would let a technician run some tests to find the cause of the fault. Could be numerous causes of smoke !
