Wife's little 280 has blown oil smoke, on startup, a couple of times for
5 seconds or so. It has less than 15,000 miles. There are no codes. Oil
looks almost like it just came out of the bottle.
Dealer tries to tell me it is condensation and there is nothing to check
etc.If there is no codes, there is nothing for them to check.
I know oil smoke. I know condensation.
Anyone else seen this?
If you're blowing blue smoke on startup, I'm thinking leaky valve seals.
They don't normally go bad at only 15,000 miles, but they could have
defective from the factory. It's also possible there's just too much oil in
the engine, or the oil is too thin.
