I've got a bit of noise coming from my Engine and I get smoke for the first few minutes of cold running. Could this be the valves? If so, what is the problem? How do I fix it? How much WILL it cost?
Where do I get new valves from? (assuming I need some).
I'm sorting the car good and proper. New Pistons, Hoses, Water Pump, Fuel Pump, Fuel Lines, Fuel Filter, etc etc. I might aswell do the Valves etc whilst I'm at it.
The turbo is a recon unit so I suspect thats fine. I know that I've got a knackered Piston ring on number 4 but I don't drive the car hard for that reason. I never get smoke whilst driving but occasionaly I have a little smoke when starting up and for the first few minutes of cold running. Could this be a build up of oil on the number 4 piston after turning off the engine? I think my Valves are noisy which is why I thought of them.
