Eventually it stopped smoking and made a full recovery. I think it's saving grace was when she goy a hydro lock and it stopped she just rolled into a parking spot and called me. I saw what happend as soon as I saw it coming out the dipstick hole and took the plugs out immediately. And turned it over. Not sure it will ever pass aircare again tho as the cat mus have been saturated.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Photobucket is an alternative area to upload and seems to be pretty easy to use.

Thanks, remember this video shows a car that already has ran for a quite a few minutes before I decided to video it. The first time I started it , it was way worse than this and didn't need my kid revving it up at all, as soon as it started it instantly started smoking like the end of this vid and did so continually even at idle, till I shut it off because I thought my neighbours were going to kill me. Funny cause she tammi gave it a wash and vacuum today and it looked really good, you'd never know.
