Re: Please help!!!!! I'm asking everywhere!!!!!
- Might be the valve guide seals? If ya can't fix it prior to
emissions testing, for goodness sakes, wipe the back bumper before
you go in line. If they see smoot on the bumper, they'll send ya
My 85 Seville burns so much oil that I had to put a "dump" pipe on it
so the bumper would not look black all the time.
You should move down here to Sunny Florida. They stopped inspections
literally the day before my birthday....he he he.... I was 102% sure
I would never pass another year.(grin)
