Re: Smoke Question
It is possible the PO "cut the brown wire" and "pulled the air box temp sensor" to eliminate hot weather hesitation. One or the other is OK but to do both runs the risk of too lean a mixture and severe detonation. This in turn can crack all of the piston ring lands and lead to severe oil consumption ( I know of two that did this). Maybe best to abandon however, a leak down test would tell the true condition of the cylinders. She may be alright.
