exhaust leak

Asked by Jul 23, 2015 at 09:48 PM about the 1987 Toyota MR2 STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son took his 1987 MR2 in to have the seals replaced.  He got the seals replaced and now the vehicle is smoking like crazy?  What do you think the issue is?  Or, some possibilities of what would cause the smoking exhaust on acceleration.

What seals were replaced? The valve guide seals? If so, they were done incorrectly. Take it back! HTH. -Jim

I've witnessed the incorrect seals being used, correct part numbers incorrect parts- seals the DOHC heads require a competent hand. NO mechanic paws.
