Smoke poors out the tailpipe when I start it, and when I punch the gas.
Is it valves, rings, what's the easiest way to fix it, or should I sell the car?
Either way I'll profit on the sale of the car, but its such a nice looking car, I would hate to sell it...
P.S. My 97 528 (5-speed), which I've had for years runs perfectly, and is currently the winter beater. This car has been a dream.
