yeah Jim. i've been married 2x. you'd think practice makes perfect
i got off immediately when i stopped her when i got home. i just fired her up and yep....smoke.....
this time i shut her down and let her sit vertical for a minute or 2. we'll see what we shall see.
but gentlemen----and i say that with GREAT respect......
why all of a sudden? this is the first time in 4k miles.
the only difference from 1 year ago to now, is that i'm letting her rev up to 4k and above before shifting. i've been doing that for a couple of weeks now. could that somehow be the cause??
she's due for an oil change. the PO has used Amsoil for the past 4 years.
maybe i should be going back to normal, real, oil? and if the answer is yes....why??
what's going on?
i've noticed my mileage has gone down over the past spring from about 41 MPG when i got her a year ago, to about 37 MPG.
any relationship? air or fuel filter? I know the brown wire has been cut. i looked behind the back seat and saw a rubber tube standing vertically. maybe i should take the box and seat out and trace the tubes from up front?
i'm going to ask for some help from Chris blueknightga who lives here locally and has offered to assist in my first oil change. he might help take her apart a bit to see if it has had a canisterectomy done.
thanks for listening
