My Loyale today just started to burn lots of oil on long right turns only. Like a freeway off-ramp where you are decelerating and making a turn. I mean it's blowing so much blue smoke it looks like a blue storm behind me and no one else can see where they are going. It does not smoke any other time but on those damn right turns. Not left, not straight.... Any suggestions? It's got me kinda worried.

It's on a 91 Loyale, 160k

Thanks

Take off your left valve cover, and I bet the little baffle has come off. When you go around a right hand corner, centrifugal force throws the oil over to the left hand side of the crank case, and if that baffle isn't there, (or you have too much oil in your crank case!) guess where it goes, right into the intake, and BINGO, James Bond smokescreen!

My old DL wagon had this same problem, and changing the PCV fixed it.

The PCV had been spewing oil into the intake, and a bunch of it had been collecting in the intake tube. Going around a long right turn, think about the layout of the piping... anything collecting in that tube will get pushed as far to the left as it can go, which would dump it right into the throttle body.

PCV valve, I had a fram one and it smoked like crazy on turns. I installed a subaru one and it all stopped. Fram sucks :mad:

Hahaha. Okay that is funny. :lol: I just replaced the PCV valve 2 days ago with a Fram. Guess I'll be ripping that little $3 POS out of my car. Maybe even the Fram oil filter. ;)

Thanks.. if it's not the PCV or whatever in the valve cover... any other suggestions?

Yes rip that Fram filter off your car, they are no good. I cut one open and the are all paper inside with no real bypass spring. Most filters have sheet metal filter end caps, rubber seals and bypass springs, but not Fram, they decided none of that was necassary:mad:
The paper seperates and travel through your oil passages and can get lodged in there and clog, go figure.
Almost any other filter made will be of better quality, you can't beat the OEM unit.

ok ok ok.. I'll stop using Fram products.. haha :lol:

Thanks for all the tips for my smoking subie fix. I'm gonna find a 92-94 Loyale and pull the emissions components off. That should fix it I hope. Sounds like a much cheaper fix then $30+ for that black can thing.

Thanks again! :D :D

Wow! I guess I deserved that...Good luck.

If you can't find the components or they are brittle, a good plumbing supply house has all sorts of nylon fittings, elbows, tees, etc. and the tubing you need to do it yourself.

Anyway - either way good luck.
