Re: Smoke coming from valve cover breather hole

The white smoke is just some blowby gasses from the piston rings which is normal on high mileage cars. Can't help you with the o2 sensors since I can't actually diagnose them on a forum lol. I can say that they usually crap out around 100k miles.

Re: Smoke coming from valve cover breather hole

Hm I must see if mine blows out smoke 143k miles here. And my o2 sensor crapped out when I bought it. Just buy them online for 40 bucks each partsgeek.com is where I got mines. the smelly exhaust should go away after.

Re: Smoke coming from valve cover breather hole

So the smoking stopped came from a bad intake manifold gasket.
