Engine Performance problem
1994 Acura Vigor 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 195789 miles
I bought a car off craigslist and I am not sure if something is wrong. The main problem is it occasionally smokes(white) off the top of the engine, and smells bad, like burnt chemicals. I had a new raidiator put in because it was overheating. That is not the problem, I think, the smoke is coming from the passengers side, as well as it feels hot. The mechanic said it was oil, but that it was not a major problem. I just want to know is that true? Or should I pay them ALLOT of money to pull the engine out to see where it's coming from. It only does it after it has been running for a while, and more when it hasn't ran for a few day's. It also stalls when I come to a srop, or about to take off from a stop. I am HOPING it is because it has been sitting for a while and it just needs a tune-up or something. I put the fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank, but I am not sure if it is something more serious or not. Can you tell me what these two problems may be? Thanks :)
have the same problem?
