Do you have a rising rate fuel presure regulator? If the car is overfuelling, it will have a hard time leaning out enough, especially when accelerating hard.
As with most of the guys here, I say your car is over rich, but if its going through oil....well.
To add a bit of smoke to the debate (ha ha ha), white can also be water (as in blown head gasket).
Thank you all very much for the helpfull repsonses :)
I just receantly had the timing uped to 18 degress , because i too thought it was running rich, ill take it to the auto elecs so they can plug up the computer and find what ECU code is active.
The car always seems to run cold than most cars ive drives. I could of driven the car for 200 k's on a hot day , and the temp needle never goes over 1/4. I might just replace the thermo stat , and get a sparky to check or the sensors , hoses etc........ .
I remember you guys talking about a better type of thermo stat to use than the standard one you can buy... any body remeber .
Thank heaps guys
PS. I does it all the time (blow out black smoke) i hope i dont have to rebuild the engine , as i was saving up for more important things, like a new T5 :)
