241Please help!!!!! I'm asking everywhere!!!!!
- Jan 14, 2003I hope that someone can help me out with my question.
The quick background: I won a 1980 V8 Cadillac coupe deville on
auction. Picked the car up drove it home fine.
I live in Virginia and have to pass an emissions test. When I start
the car up at first (after a few hours when it's been turned off), it
sends out blue smoke (burning oil), but after 5 minutes there is no
trace of smoke AT ALL. A mechanic told me that maybe a seal is bad
and the oil seaps through overnight.
I know if I start the car cold, there is no way I can pass emissions
(I have already changed the oil). But if I drive it around the smoke
eventually stops. Do you guys think I may be able to pass emissions
even though there is no smoke once the car is heated up???
Hope to hear from someone, because I would really like to keep this
car. And if it passed, I want to fix the smoking problem also.
Thanks so much!!!
