What color is the smoke? How often does your husband add a quart or 2 of oil? I suspect the color is blue/grey and your burning the oil. Valve seals and or bad rings will cause this problem. Time to put some money into the engine or look for another.


It was white dad ckd oil level and said there's too much oil in it. Car sat parked for a few hours then he started it up. He let it run awhile..then drove it...not smoking now. I don't know why its not smoking now
