>>14225935 It runs great but I'm worried about the tons of oil on top of the engine. Another problem is I'm in California so I'll have to get it to pass smog and pay a ridiculous amount of money to register it.
>>14225956 >ca reg reg for such an old car should be like $100 or less if it doesn't have any back fees. if you have the vin they have a fee calculator on the dmv website
>ca smog best time is on a wet day in the morning, less visible smoke which is where they always get old cars that burn oil. my volvo 850 turbo burnt oil from the factory (manual sez check oil every time you fuel up) and some retarded smog guy kept failing me after making my car idle for 30 minutes; granted the first time was for some missing vacuum lines contributing to the smoking which i fixed, but he was so terrible he just kept saying it was the intercooler even though it was warm from driving 30 minutes when I showed up, and then the excessive idle time which would make any 850 smoke. It passed emissions fine, but the smog guy being an idiot really hindered my smog certification for like two weeks and I ended up taking it to another shop that wasn't terrible. call a place that's well recommended, make an appointment early in the morning and SHOW UP WITH THE CAR ALREADY WARMED so they can just test it and it doesn't sit for longer than the test requires.
Also your car is smogged against a baseline of other cressidas so you should be fine on emissions and the rest of the tests unless you cat is totaled or your fuel or evap system is old or punctured
>oil leak what >>14226015 said also could be something super easy like the oil filler cap has a bad gasket or your pcv valve is bad and the extra pressure is forcing oil out of your gaskets. Troubleshoot when in doubt.
>>14226308 >oil filler cap threads broken ayyyy good job >until that time, I am stuck in this bizarre car >but what a mischievous thing to leave lying around >the power of knowledge and being cheap >Troubleshoot
