maydog Posted March 7, 2005 Report Share Posted March 7, 2005 Howdy, I have noticed in the past few monthis that my 97 sts leaves a puff of smoke and a burnt smell when coasting / slowing to a stop from a high speed and then taking off again. It is really noticeable if I engine brake the car and then hit the accelerator. It is the worst after filling up the oil - I am careful not to overfill it. My car probably consumes 3-5 quarts of oil between changes (I use the oil life indicator, usually change around 10%). Is this problem indicative of a piston ring issue or could it be more benign like a bad pcv valve. Other than the occasional smoking, it runs like a champ. Thanks, md Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
