This '94 SLS smokes bad, it is a white smoke, and will start about 30 seconds after starting the engine, runs ok.
I pulled all the spark plugs wires and saw that the #4 and #8 spark plugs had oil all around them, I pulled all the plugs and turned it over 15 or 20 times, and looked down each hole, all looked the same, but #4 had a puddle on the piston head.
I pulled off that head,(left or front), and looked at underside of the head, the color on the #4 & #8 was a little darker black than the other 2, the cylinders looked good, the headgasket looked ok.
I took the head to a head shop, and they said it was warped to .004, and needed other work, (unrelated to my problem), they also said there was no cracks, cost to do this head work is $178.
Does anybody think that the warpage could have caused the smoking?
I can not pull the engine out to get to the other head, and I can't afford to pay the cost to have it pulled out for me.
If I pay the cost for the head work and do the labor to re-assemble, and it still smokes, I will be very tense.
thanks for any input.
