I just picked up a 85 supra for 150 bucks that has ben sitting for over a year. The guy I bought it from told me it smoked. It started up fine. I put new plugs and clean up the air filter do to acorns and it runs really strong and wicked smooth but smoked dark smoke when you rev it up. The oil and anti freeze looks good. It has 200,000 miles on it, but goes awsome. Thanks for the help. Im new to this kind of car. Mark

The smoke is a dark color like black. It doesnt smoke at an idle. It os burning oil some where. I think It might need valve seals

oil is usually a blue smoke sounds like ur running rich black usually means excess fuel, but i maybe wrong.

A buddy of mine had a 92 paseo and it started throwing black smoke and running poorly. He was going to get around to fixing it, but that week it threw a rod. 220k miles or so. Dont know if the two problems were related (smoke and throwing rod) but I suppose is it possible.

White smoke = water
Light Blue smoke = oil
Black smoke = running rich

Hope that helps :wink:
