Smoking Wagoneer

Asked by Dec 07, 2010 at 07:15 PM about the 1979 Jeep Wagoneer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1979 Jeep Wagoneer smokes when I press on the throttle, could it be because there is an oil leak somewhere in the motor, or do most of them just do that?

1 Answer

What color is the smoke? If it's white you are leaking coolant into the head. probably a new head gasket. If it's black it could be a head gasket or, a broken or worn piston ring.
