Re: 94 3.8

Well for one that sensor your dad turned to adjust the timing doesn't adjust the spark timing it controls the injectors and controls transmition shifts is its auto. If it smokes only when you first start it, it needs valve seals. But it sounds like you're needing a good tune up or your coilpack is failing. But with the timing the computer controls that.

Re: 94 3.8

valve seal is leaking. oil drip pass valve seal into the cylinders. when starting engine up it is burning it up and remaining oil blow out of tail pipe.

Re: 94 3.8

Could be either or but get that cam shaft sensor back where it was so it will quite using so much fuel. Then pull spark plugs and see what they look like and go from there.
