Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 153000 miles
Hi, I own a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse and I just bought this car, I Tighted the tensenor pully for the drive belt because it was so loose that it wasent even grabbing the power steering or ALT. I fixed that though. Now, after driving the car for a couple days I've been noticing white smoke in my rearview mirror. I started the car up in my driveway and theres no smoke; I let it idle for about 5 mins then it started smoking a little bit like you'd see in winter, then 8 mins went by and it started smoking a lot. I checked the oil level and its fine, (maybe whoever sold the car to me toped it off because it burned oil?) She said she had a 2,000 repair overhaul on the engine last year. I check the coolant and its fine, for now. Im confused, could this be valve guides for oil or seals for coolant?
have the same problem?
