    We just got our 'Lucy' a little over a week ago and have noticed she smokes under rev. She also misses/stumbles on initial warm up. We're working our way on fixing little things and going from there but I am curious as to what I need to go at for the smoke. It's white/gray for those who will...

    I'm having a smoking problem with my '65 200 L6 engine. After the car runs for a while and I shut it off, white smoke pours out of the exhaust pipe for several minutes afterward. Compression is normal, no drop, and all cooling components except the radiator have been replaced. So why so much smoke?

    i heard a sound coming from the back left side of my motor, and i noticed a little smoke rising up, the sound was like a ticking almost, i can see the gasket ripping out the side from under one of the heads, do i need to replace the gasket, should i not drive the car, what are the possible...
