What's your fuel milage like? Your carburetor be running way too rich.

 

Are you just making short trips? Your engine may not be warming up enough to evaporate the excess fuel required during startup.

I don't know the gas mileage as it is just getting on the road. It keeps blowing rotten coolant lines and in the course of looking for the newest blown line noticed the vac line that controls the egr is unhooked and plugged off with a bolt. I have a suspicion that may have something to do with it and will checkout emissions system also the evaporative system to see if they will work. It seems to run well but definately needs attention to the maintenance.

Any and all advice will be much appreciated;).

Thank you!

Fuel in the oil is bad, it will destroy the bearings, rings, well everything!

The cause can only be the carb. Remove it and rebuid it with all new gaskets making sure you clean it well, and remove all the old gaskets. It's leaking in one way or another. The needle and seat, choke sticking, or a bad gasket. Follow the repair manual to set the choke and float. Remove the egr and clean all the carbon out of it and the passages with carb cleaner. Clean your pcv valve and check the hoses for blockage. Then change your oil. Good luck.
