Thedusty0 Posted November 28, 2015 Share Posted November 28, 2015 Hello guy's i'm new to the forum i bought a subaru recently and i'm a bit worried about a smoking issue. The situation the car is in goes like this, it was a company car,it has 55k miles on the clock (possibly clocked before 2011 no proof for that but would't surprise me) only been at subaru once for service, maybe 2 oil filters changed in 55k,as when i changed the filter last week it was an OEM subaru blue filter with some small rust holes inside,and was leaking; So the car had a rough life. i did a little service miself, oil filters Battery soon to follow cambelt (as service interval suggests 60k?) and sparkplugs. The reason i bought the car was to go on a winter trip across europe,and i decided to go for a subaru, now i'm worried it won't make the trip (about 10k miles in 3 weeks)? the level of oil has decreased from last week when i put 4L in of castrol edge, maybe i lost anywhere between 400ml to 800ml of oil; car is smoking not when driving, but at traffic lights or whenever i start the car,it's mostly noticeable in start stop slow moving traffic, at the moment i'm really keeping an eye on oil/coolant levels but it just bugs me, could it be the headgasket or? also i checked the engine temp and it idles at about 92 degrees. Also when the car starts it takes a while i mean not alot but compared to my previous vechicles i'd say it takes an extra second or 2 otherwise it drives from A to B... i really wanted to make the trip and plane tickets are really expensive (so would an engine rebuild would be but...) what do you guys think? smoke is white/grey :( :( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
