  1. Thanks Reaper1, I owe you and Hemi Dude for your input and expertise, unfortunately I am cramming all my hours into my real job for the next couple weeks anticipating the time I will miss for my hip surgery I mentioned. Unfortunately I dont think I will be under a car until the beginning of next year (unless I get run over). Until then any thoughts or Ideas are greatly appreciated, send them over, and I will review all the advice and suggestions and be back corresponding with you guys when I start turning wrenches again in January. THX, PESD
  2. I'll try to keep it quick, dont want keep you guy's hanging because I know your trying to help, THANK'S! I was planning on storing the car for the winter no matter what. The smoke is oil Recently my brother just leased an old Chrysler dealer building and is starting a sports car restoration shop. He is very knowledgeable and has been racing and rebuilding cars for the past twenty years (we both worked on sports cars with my dad since we've been about ten, 40+ years ago) We trailed it over to his shop today (for the winter) but before we put it in a corner of his showroom we put it up on a lift and took a look. Lots of oil around the bottom of the engine we assume the frond and rear seals need replacing, no oil any were around the turbo, dipstick is clear oil no milkiness , plugs look clean. He suspects the rings or valve seals are blown and an engine rebuild is most likely needed, If that"s what it is that will be my mission the beginning of next year. Hip replacement in a month. Hemi Dude, thanks, while I had it on the lift today I should have taken your advise and plugged the oil intake to the turbo to see if the smoke would calm, ( though I mention around the turbo is clean of oil on the exterior, could it be internal seals/ rings leaking causing the smoke?). Now that I think of it I will definitely try that before I start thinking about pulling the engine. Hemi Dude you mentioned the low compression is common or normal for that engine. My brother also pointed out that the 95 psi on the compression test is very low leading him to believe it's rings or seals, he pointed it out to me in the shop manual that the 16 valve should be 128 psi? I did a simple test, plugs in, dry. How do think they measure the 128 psi, wet test plugs out?? I dont know. It's odd there all 95 except #1 at 90 psi, if it were rings or seals I think the compression test would be all over the place. Above all, I dont question anyone's theories, knowledge or opinion, especially my brother who always go's above and beyond trying to help. Just trying to figure it out. Shit happens, the car is unique, fun and fast. It will be back on the road next spring, one way or another, only 14K but about thirty years old. Any advise, ideas or support is always appreciated. THANKS PESD

  10. Just re read this post, sorry for the typo's but still need some direction. Thanks, PESD
  11. Hi, Need a hand diagnosing lose of oil, white smoke from exhaust. 2.2 cosworth head. Engine seems to run fine, not misfiring, temp gauge almost always on the cool side even on very hot days sitting in traffic ( I'v always wondered if it was accurate) 14,000K on engine most of the time I baby it but occasionally open it up. Just about to put it away for the winter and noticed the white smoke, low oil. (hard not to notice, lots of smoke) Did a compression check today , 3 cylinders at about 95 psi except #1 at 90 (is that enough to consider a blown HG??) plugs look good, was going to do a block test but could not get the engine warm enough to open the Tstat without fogging out the neighborhood. I love this car and hope to have it for summers for a long time. I have the blue manual but am having a tough time figuring out what engine they are talking about when trying to trouble shoot. I'm hoping its not the head gasket but if it is do would it be hard to find a new one? same for the turbo could it be the oil seals / rings, rebuilt? new? Lots of questions, thanks for any direction, hopefully pay it back in the future. PESD

    How many 16V's are still operational?

    I'm not sure if it's on the list (or where the list came from) but unfortunately my dad passed away two months ago and left me his 16V. He loved his TC, I plan on taking good care of it for him. VIN# ZC2FR1100KB203707 , build #1386 , about 10,000 miles.
