I'm tring to make the car last for a few more mounths. as a 02 explorer motor is near. the car has 112k on it and this weekend it has started blowing smoke after sitting at a stop for a few min. and I don't mean just a small amount I mean a clowd that looks like I did a real good burn out.the car acts fine no loss of oil press , no miss fireing, nothing out of the usual but the smoke I wish it started in a month so I could do the new motor now but I need to make the car last for just a little more time. sorry this is more of a venting post as a bad ring is most likly the bad part.
