what makes a lexus 4.0 engine smoke after outting in power steering fluid
Is it still smelling? Did you accidentially slop any liquid on any engine parts? When engine heats up it will burn off eventually.
the fluid is leaking down on to exhaust pipes
The power steering fluid is indeed dropping onto exhaust or other really hot component and burning up. My car does this and I have to carry a bottle of power steering fluid and refill a little bit every couple weeks
if smoke trough the exaust pipe could be an air valve located at the bottom portion of the power steering pump it has a pair of vacum lines oneto the air intake plastic pipe and one to the iitake manifold
