SeaFoam - Smoke from front of Engine!
I finally got around to SeaFoamiing my 95' SSEi. It did help. She puffed some smoke when I soaked the engine and she continued to smoke for about 5 minutes afterwards.
However, this is the weird part, when I stuck the tube downinto the bottle of SeaFoam and let the engine choke on it, and she did choke and rattle, smoke came out from under the front of the engine! Scared the **** out of me. I thought I had cracked something.
Now I do have a pretty good oil leak comming from the front left side of the engines under the pulleys. My oil pan and especially around the oil filter it is covered with oill. I haven't been able to locate this leak.
Now I am wondering how the SeaFoam smoke got out of the front of the engine. I checked for an exhaust leak and there is none. The only other thing I can think of is a crack in the intake manifold or a bad intake manifiold gasket.
Can anyone confirm this? Any insite would be helpful before removing the intake.
P.*. I have already replaced the Valve cover gaskets.
