I recently bought a 1989 ford probe gl with 2.2 liter fuel injected engine. The car has 200,000 miles on it.I was told the top end was rebuilt about 30,000 ago. But am beginning to dought it! The car was fine for about 5 days no smoke. Nothing. Then I changed the oil and the next day tons of bluish smoke poured out of the exhaust for about 5-7 minutes then went away. It has done this every day since I changed the oil. If it sits for 5+ hours it will smoke when you start it up. Then it is gone. Once it is warmed up it does'nt smoke at all of what I can tell. Car has tons of power and is very peppy for a high mileage car.I also passed emissions before it started smoking.I put in 2 quarts of lucas oil and 2.9 quarts of 10-40 gtx high mileage when I changed the oil. Thanks for any help. Car runs great besides the embarrising smoke.
