I also have this problem. With 374,000 miles on it, I think I am getting a lot of blow-by when down shifting, and the engine gets pushed. Enough that it pops the dipstick up out of the tube and dumps a little oil on hot exhaust. Instant smoke screen!!
I read that there is a venturi in the intake manifold that needs cleaned out, but I can't find it.
I tried putting a vent in the hose that was indicated in the above post, but now it just pushes oil out of there. Less smoke, but that whole side of the bay is an oily mess. And when I drive sporty, I have to add oil twice as often as I add gas.
Yes I know that sooner or later I am going to have to admit the engine needs rebuilt... but I will still need to find that venturi
Your engine has a lot of miles,like mine was. I used 15-50 oil towards the end of its days with reduced oil consumption and less smoking. There is a restricted orifice on the rear of the Throttle body.I tapped into it for my catch can.

I have an 85 P-type with a 7MGTE swap. My temp gauge in the dash reads way hot but my after market temp gauge reads 180 or less. I disconnected all the sensors from around the thermostat housing but the gauge on the dash still is getting a reading from somewhere. Is there another sensor...
I remember taking the sunroof out of my first Supra. I didn't care about it because racecar, and I mangled it in the process. The glue was tenacious and I had to use large prying tools.
I would like to remove the sunroof of another Supra without damaging it for another CS member... any...
How do you prevent spilling gas? It seems to do it at every gas pump. When going very slow it still come out of the top before the auto shut off kicks in. When going fast even more comes out before the auto shut off kicks in.
For now I am just resorting to not filling up all the way and...
Hey guys, ive started to buy things for my 2JZ swap but I was curious if there's a better option then the msd tach adapter? ive read different things... I love my didi dash so I want to make sure I buy the correct thing to be able to use it after the swap,
