help---my car smokes like crazy!!!
I have a W126 280SE, a DOHC. About a week ago I noticed that it would smoke when I accelerate. Yesterday, I noticed that the oil dipstick side was full of oil, and cleaned it up. This morning, I drove it and about 10 minutes after I smelled smoke and looked at the rear view mirror and it was smoking really bad! If I do not accelerate, smoke is minimal, but when I do- you can hardly see the car behind you! The oil seems to be coming out of the dipstick tube and splatters all over the side of the engine and exhaust! I think it is building way too much pressure in the crankcase and exits thru the dipstick tube! My PCV might be clogged up! Where is it located and how do I clean or replace it? Any other problem you think might be causing this? Can't seem to get the idle right too...it shakes, and never steady. Any help or input will be appreciated....
