Rough idle at times, not always. Running down the road trying to accelerate up to speed on interstate the unit cuts out, but can feather the throttle and it will straighten up temporarily. Have replaced fuel pump, filter and pressure regulator. When it acts up it will smoke heavily, checked exhaust temps at cylinders etc, all within 25 degrees of each other. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this problem, have spent a lot of money already, any ideas? sometimes the check engine light comes

My 1997 Geo Prizm engine is overheating and the heat is not working. I noticed the heat problem first, then the engine overheated the next time I drove it. Already added antifreeze (the reservoir was empty) then drove it around the block a few times. Engine did not overheat, but cold air was still coming out of the vents. Did I just not drive it for long enough, or is there some other problem?

Hi. We are again having problems. The car engine smokes first thing in the morning. It is White smoke and smells like engine oil. It only lasts maybe 10-15 mins then there is no more smoke. It seems to be coming from around the turbo area. There r no obvious signs of a leak. We r thinking it may be dripping straight onto the exhaust at other times and burning off. Could it b a turbo seal or line? if so is it hard to fix? Turbo seems to run fine.

White smoke is usually coolant, oil is usually a blue color, most turbos r cooled by coolant so U may have a coolant leak in the turbo, may B a seal or crack in the turbo. Check your coolant level occasionally to C if it drops. ... 1997 Subaru Impreza

I put in new battery and when I started the car the oil light came on. Next time I drove the car an oill smell permeated the car and when I turned on the fan blue smoke came inside the cab. There wasa a tiny oil drip under the car off of a cablle close to the battery and there is oil spillage inside the right side of the engine carrier. The engine is clattering but there is power and the dip stick is full.. Serious problem? Make my day please!!!

The main seals could be blown. Thats probably where the oil is leaking from. Your oil pump has gone out to it sounds like. If you continue to drive the car it could burn up the engine. I would have the oil pump replaced and the main seals replaced to ... Chevrolet Cavalier

Sudden/Rapid oil consumption - no external leaks, no blue smoke out the exhaust. It will run fine, and keep oil level on full, I keep a close eye on the level, then suddenly almost all the oil will disappear from the oil pan. There is no oil in the coolant. After I top off the oil, the engine runs fine, until the next time I hear a slight rattle. Then pull the stick and the oil is all gone again... It can be months and many miles between occurances. It has to be burning it, but where sho

I have just topped up the oil with a different grade of oil, I was assured this would not bea problem as long as the oil fell within the manufacturers guidelines.

High oil consumption, but no visibleleaks: on a 2002 Toyota Hilander V-6. I suspect valve seals (vehicle was sitting for several months), but wondered if there was some other possible source. Only one time (after vehicle sat for 3 months)..engine started hard and smoked badly for 2 minutes. This was not evident any other time. Have not noticed oil smoke in the exhaust when starting or running engine any other time. Oil consumption varies: mostly 1 qt per 300-400 miles; but one time on a 350 m
