    smoking!!! and oil...

    hey all

    got a tad problem, iv got a oil leake... its cominng from the drivers corner of the engine if you know what i mean!? been told its possibly the crank seal does this s0und right?

    also, when i hammer it and put my foot a wee bit harder to the floor, on occasion i start emmitting smoke out the exhaust, could this be related to the oil problem, or is it something else? im thining oil as i got a mate to rev the engine and i put my hand behind the tail pipe and had oil spec's on my hand...?

    any help appreciated, i know its a bit un dicriptive but...

    Oil leak could be two things, possibly weepage from the crankshaft oil seal ( which is a known problem ), or more possibly from the bolts holding the the sump on that end, you got a choice, try to nip up the sump bolts ( don't over tighten them ) or remove them and put a generous amount of blue hylomar around the threads and refit as the leak uasually comes from seepage down the bolt thread.
    As for the oil burning your either looking at possible valve stem oil seals gone hard or a possible ring problem
    Would'nt concern yourself unless it gets really bad matey
