No top end power.
OK so I think I know what's going on, before I start I think its just a valve adjustment issue.
But my car ran fine, then one day I noticed some nice ticking/rattling noise on start up. After it runs a few minutes and gets warmed up it goes away.
Also I noticed its letting out white smoke the entire time its running. You don't notice it until you stop or are going up a hill, and its not a lot (no James bond smoke screen) lol.
And it has a lack of power mainly at higher speed. Or trying to pull a hill, it accelerates slower on flat ground than normal, but it seems I can't get it over 50-60mph unless its dead flat road or downhill. Going up steep hills I'm lucky to top out at 30mph. And no matter how much gas I give it, it acts no different.
No sputtering or cut out, idles just fine.
So am I correct about the valves being out of adjustment, or should I be looking elsewhere?
