    80series vx, been doing a bit of low range work lately and it smokes like a bastard (grey, light blue) and smells a bit but only when in low, in particular when engine braking. Normal or should I check oil levels in everything? Looks Iike I might be heading away and getting a bit of snow next week... Checking to make sure others haven't had the same and had their truck crap out.

    Another topic, tyre pressures in snow? Got mud tyres on at the moment, thinking leave the, had to break hough snow to the gravel underneath rather than let them, down so I float and slide around
    I'm no expert, but sounds like worn rings, sucks in the oil when engine braking and when you put your foot down again it blows out a cloud of smoke for a few seconds?

    Only happens when in low range, bit of grey steamy smoke when cold. Smokes when engine braking, with foot down it seems to be a little better

    I doubt it would be related to what gear range it's in, are you sure that you just don't notice it in high range? Give it a try down a long hill.

    Smoking during or straight after engine braking is a sign of worn rings, I think.

    It is possible I don't notice it. Had the head replaced 2years ago and think thy changed the top rings while it was in bits. Not tooooo worried about it it's a Toyota with no rust so as long as I keep giving it oil it should go(

    So I failed WOF on the loose/noisy wheel bearings in the RF and also a headlight bulb. Bulb was easy and did the wheel bearings tonight in the driveway. Minor hiccup getting the locking hub back together, fiddly bastard of a thing, all done now though.

    Shiny new bits



    Old bearing race, I dunno if this wear is bad or not? But replaced the bearings anyway because I had some.
