Engine Performance problem
1990 Other Mitsubishi Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 255000 miles
Hi, I have a 1980 Mitsubushi Express longbase van. Recently my head gasket went as it was over hearting etc. I got a new head gasket and also had the engine head cleaned up. The engine now seems to drive great and the compression has improved. Unfortunately the van is still kicking out white smoke when you rev the engine when van is started. I drove 200k over a 3hour drive due to traffic and found the van used LOADS of oil. It was leveled between to marks on the dip stick when I started and it is now half way below the lowest mark.
Does anyone know what I could do to stop the engine using this much oil? I have a long trip ahead of about 10'000k and I will end up spening hundreds on oil if it continues.
Thanks guys : )
