Engine problems. videos

I cant drain the oil and put new oil in because i am way too busy. but i think it has too much oil. the car is 200kms away from me getting work done. i am way too busy to drive to it and check it out.


The car will idle at 100rpm most times. only sometimes it idles at 800-900

there is white smoke coming out of the tail(not the thick white smoke from a head gasket leak)

idling low



not starting

Re: Engine problems. videos

how are your spark plugs and wires? do you know when they were replaced? also take your cap off the distributor and inspect it for any black marks or dark contacts which could indicate arcing, in which case the cap, rotor, plugs and wires should be replaced, plugs and wires should be NGK, and it is best to go with iridiums
