MCSLegacy Posted April 17, 2009 Share Posted April 17, 2009 Hey everyone, got a question for you all. Getting just a little concerned here. So yesterday I was driving on the freeway going about 80MPH. I get off on the exit ramp and my car starts smoking this white smoke from underneath the hood. It's not a lot, and you can barely notice it at some points, but it kind of slowly creeps out my hood scoop and the sides of the car. It's happened many times, but before it was always accompanied with a burning oil smell. Well I figured out that my oil pressure sensor was leaking on the top of the engine causing oil to sit up on the passenger side of the engine. Now I have no smell, and the smoke is a lighter white. Now I'm thinking it's probably still burning some of that excess oil off the top of the engine since I haven't had the time to get in there and clean it throughorly, but I opened the hoop and the smoke seems to be coming from the drivers side of the engine? So the previous owner (after watching himself some Fast and Furious, I'm sure) made a "Cold Air Intake" out of PVC pipe. He used a rubber fitting to attach the PVC to the engine. Is it possible that the rubber fitting is melting where it hooks on to the engine, causing the smoke? Can you guys think of anything else that would be causing my car to smoke like that? I mean I may have a hole in the exhaust somewhere towards the front, but usually the smoke continues for a little while after turning off the car. Seems to happen after running the car pretty hard, like on the freeway going fast, driving for more than half an hour. Temperature seems to be fine. I've had the car for less than a year, just recently did head gaskets, and new clutch, brakes, CV joints in the front, new tires, oil pressure sensor. 98 Legacy 2.5 GT, 5 Speed Thanks!
