  5. Hi again thought i might mention, that there is patches of oil, on the road, where i park my car, out side my house! and ,although i said white smoke! not like the pure white (stars in your eyes) smoke we had when the head went! its a puff of whity/blue smoke, and i smell diesel/oily smell!...quite strong when reversing into a parking space! thanks again gina
  6. hi there thanks for your reply!..i hope your wrong too!! bob also changed the cam belt, then too!! i posted on that suggested forum! I have tried to contact Bob, previoulsy about a service, but he never got back to me!..seems like i'd be pestering him!! and i know, or rather knew, he was/is a very busy man! thought i'd try here, before annoying him!, with my problem! thanks again gina
  7. Hi i Have a Toyota Lucida 2.2 4x4 1996 p reg! It recently seems to have an oil leak, from somewhere(I'm a Woman)....and ocasionally sends out a puff of whiteish smoke, and gives off a smell like oil!...sometimes there is splatters of oil, up the boot door!!, any ideas what this could be???? I have noticed that it tends to smoke/smell more when manovering/reversing (ie trying to park)! it has had a new head, readaitor 2 years ago, by buffalo bob, and has just recently had oil, filter change!(2 weeks ago). any help/info would be absolutely great!! also sliding door mechanism, seems to get stuck alot!.any ideas how to get to that part! the only way we can seem to free it, is to, pull the interior handle towards you, and it releases it (doesnt open from outside at all) even when the inside is released! kind regards gina
