2 problems, Oil on manifold, check engine light
Are these two problems related?
First: I see smoke billowing up from the passenger side of motor close to fire wall from the manifold. About as much smoke as 2 smoldering cigars. I took all the motor dress up covers off and still could not tell exactly where the oil is coming from. Valve cover gasket? Any ideas? Is it a major ordeal to fix?
I have access to a mechanic only on weekends.
Second: check engine light came on after she almost stalled coming to red light. After a while it went out, but the light comes and goes as the stalling comes and goes over the past few days. When I'm at cruising speed it runs great. I don't know if this issue is stemming form the bad gas I put in her a few weeks ago. The old girl is very cold natured and has never ideled smoothly until warmed up.
I found a shop with an OBD I code reader. None of the 6 or so paleces I called in by my area have the OBD 1 all have the OBDII. Crazy. I'll post codes as soon as I can get some time off to get it done.
Check engine light started before leak.
