Engine Performance problem
1987 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 290000 miles
Hi everyone, appreciate any help given.
My Sv21 camry is leaking oil from the distributor cap so I was about to attempt taking the distributor out and replacing the seal. I just noticed though that under higher pressure (accelerating hard especially off lights) it's blowing a lot of smoke out of the exhaust. Is this related? Could I be burning oil this way? Or could the loose seal cause it to smoke?
I fear the worst as the engine has been running quite hot for some time (just under half way on the temp guage) no further though even after long drives, took it round Australia recently.
On long drives though it was losing about 1L of oil per 100km's out of the dissy cap.
greatly appreciate any help.
have the same problem?
