Engine health based on the cap and exhust

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Is the oil residual on the engine cap (photo is attached) a warning on the condition of the engine?

Also, when starting the engine, light white smoke comes out of the exhust, but it goes away after around 15 minutes.

Thanks!

Require more information of the engine fitted to your Prado[?] .

I did a Forum search with the terms white smoke and located this thread which might be relevant.

      Hi guys, i just replaced my engine oil with 6.1L Nulon 5w-30 SN Long Life. But the oil level is higher than the high dot on the dipstick when the engine was stone cold. Just wondering what’s the best time to use the dip to check the oil level? Stone cold or after warming up? Cheers

      This question has probably been asked time and time again. I have a 92 single cab hilux that is raised it is also 4x4. Currently has a 2.4  diesel engine. I want to change it out for something with more go. Was looking at the lexus v8, any thoughts?  My main worries are: 
      -would I lose the 4x4? 
      -fuel consumption 
      -would I need to change the prop shafts and diff to handle the new engine. 
       
      Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.

      HI guys,
       
      First time posting, just wondering if you guys could clear up a few questions I have, in converting a ep91 5 speed starlet and putting the paseo 1.5L engine in to it.
       
      Question 1:
      Is the engine loom in the starlet the same as the loom in the Paseo or will I need the Paseo loom?
       
      Question 2:
       
      The starlet is currently a 5 speed manual the Paseo donor car I have is an automatic, will the Paseo ecu run if I keep the manual transmission? 
       
      Question 3:
      Will the 5 speed starlet box bolt straight onto the Paseo engine? 
       
      And are there any other modifications I need to do? 
      Or any other info that would help would be greatly appreciated.
