Ever since I bought this car it has been burning oil. I burns about 2 qts a week. Ive got oil blowing into my air intake and it seems to be idling low (600 RPM)When I step on it to get on the highway it throws a big puff of white smoke. Now I know Ive got Piston blow by, but what could be causing this? I did a exhaust back pressure test and there is no restriction. It read about 1.5 psi. So I don't think its the converter. The car has 105k on it. Its been doing this since 74k. Any ideas?????? Please!!!!
Oh!! And sometimes it will false start. It will turn over about twice and fire, but it wont catch, When this happens I crank it again and tap the gas pedal and it fires up. Weird!!!!
