84 380 sl occassional Oil burn?
We have an 84 380 SL with 165K on it. Runs strong, uses very little oil. But recently has started to burn great clouds of blue smoke [once in a while]. Everything seems ok, oil pressure is high. cam oilers are loose. Have ordered replacement parts. Plugs look good. Oil normal level, all pressures appear ok. Everything appears in place. Local MB mechanic has looked at it and it ran fine. Next day started to smoke again. Wife drives it to school [5 miles], it sets for 6 hours, on way home, and it starts to smoke, profusely, then stops and runs fine??? Any ideas???
