I just purchased a 1998 Eclipse with 2.0 non turbo. Engine does not smoke but drinks oil. Any cure without rebuilding engine.
Eclipse has 158 K miles. runs great but uses an enormous amount of oil. Only minimum amount of smoke during hard acceleration.
Have you checked for oil leaks? Does it smoke right when you crank it or if idling / taking off from a dead stop? If so could just be valve guide seals.
No oil leaks. Does not smoke at first start. Does not smoke at idle. only smokes when hard acceleration. Then stops.
if its sat for awhile before you bought it,, it proably just needs to burn some crap off,, drive it for awhile and see how it does,,, try to get an oil change right away never know how many miles are on that oil,, what do you mean by uses a lot of oil though? like how much how fast how many miles or whatever
