I've search around a little and couldn't seem to find too much info on this.
I have a 1979 Volvo
MD11C and I've noticed 1 of my air filters is saturated in engine oil
. I thought initially maybe the filter was loose, but after changing the oil
and filter the problem was still there, now just with new oil eveywhere. After removing both air filters I noticed 1 was so full of oil it was spraying throughout the engine
thing is, I don't notice a loss of oil in the engine. I check before every start, which is around 5 times a week but the level doesn't noticeably change. However; if oil is being sprayed it must be losing some oil, just not enough to notice I guess
Does anyone know what would be causing this? Would to much oil cause this perhaps? I filled it VERY VERY slightly above the line the previous 2 times.
It also smokes while under way (white), I placed my hand over the exhaust
to check for diesel
smell but there wasn't any. I suspect the white smoke could actually be steam; not sure though. Any insight on the white 'smoke' would be great also.
