Chris

When Chris turns more then 270 degrees to the right on a freeway ramp the car sputters--he feels a loss of power for an instant. Then when he hits the gas he gets bluish-whitish smoke out the tailpipe. It's been doing this for three and a half years. The car has a horizontally-opposed engine and Ray thinks that on turns, centrifugal force is causing oil to build up in valve cover, then oil is sucked in through worn seals, causing the smoke. Chris doesn’t need to worry about it if it’s not getting worse.
