Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Dodge Daytona 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 240000 miles
i just rebuilt a 1995 dodge Dakota pickup with a 2.5 4 cly motor. It did very good for about 300 miles and now the oil has turned jet black and I see oil smoke when I cost and then shift. I put everything new in the block but the crank and rods. I am also getting soot on the body at the tail pipe. The motor run smooth and idles good. There is no noise and oil pressure is good. I ran a vacuum test and the motor held steady at 18 inches of vacuum the temp will go up almost to hot and move back to the middle after driving awhile. It has new thermostat, gauge sending unit. This is the 1st time I have had any problem with any motor I have built. This is the 6th motor including a forklift engine. Please if anyone can help I would think you greatly.
have the same problem?
