I have a '93 probe 2.0 5 speed manual transmission. I always check my oil every 2 weeks and the dipstick always registered at full. When I did the oil change, I was shocked that maybe a quart and a half came out and the filter was dry! Now it is blowing white (not blue) smoke excessively bad from the tailpipe until I let it warm completely up to normal operational temp, then the smoke stops. Although the pressure gage reads in the normal range, there is no oil showing on the dipstick. I have checked the oil cap, and the radiator cap and no foam residue is there. The dipstick itself does not smell sweet or has a watery residue on it. My radiator is still at full, green and not milky, the reserve is low though. If, of course, I lower my oil to around 2 quarts it does not smoke and the car runs fine. The smell of the smoke is of fresh oil, but also has a smell of it running rich with gas. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I do love driving this car, but am highly embarrassed to start it up!
