It's smoking heavily each time put accelerator down

Asked by Apr 03, 2014 at 08:57 AM about the 1995 Volvo 850

Question type: General

Was smoking so changed oil. But still smokes so not sure what else. There is always oil
burning from leaking oil over the motor which somehow gets over both sides of motor
then drips down between motor and the car itself  and in turn makes the car burning oil
from under the engine as well as the smoke coming out of the exhaust. What do I do

1 Answer


You have someone replace the valve cover gasket. That is what is probably leaking.
