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.
Troubleshooting this electrical issue on my 1985 P type has been fun but the hours are turning into days and I could use some help.

Hi there, I have an 85 L type with a digi dash and my odometer no longer works. I have been searching the forums and it seems like this issue is somewhat prevalent with digital dashes. There are no other issues with anything on the dash, and was wondering if someone could share some insight as...
Does anyone happen to know or is there a diagram of the stack up order of washers/spacers under the ac tensioner dust covers, I think an extra probably worked it’s way in the pile in the years It’s been sitting but I can’t seem to find an order that works regardless.
I have 82 Supra that cranks good. There is spark at the ignition coil. Tested injector pulse with noid light, and it checked out good. Fuel pump working and pressure is good. However, when I checked the spark at the spark plug wires, there is no spark or sometimes spark. I pulled plug wires off...
I just got my 85 running again the other day after being worked on for the better part of a year and discovered that it wouldn't idle without any charge in the battery. This leads me to believe I have a bad alternator so I have a few questions.
1 Does my conclusion seem correct?
2 Where would...
