5.0 problems (in a mustang tho )
so pretty recently ive started to have some problems with my car.
my check oil light comes on now bout once every 2 weeks. from what people tell me theres no blue smoke. i park in a garage, and the only thing on the floor is power steering fluid. but there is def. oil spray under my car, (assuming rear main seal) when light comes on i add a quart. and all seems well for 2 weeks.
i get black smoke for a second when i romp on it, but i think my car is running crazy rich. my bumper is covered in soot so is my trunk. ive got a 255 lph pump. cats, all emissions stuff no cel.
car is running hot.... regardless of outside temps, it climbs up to almost 210, and then i put my heat on and it drops a little below 210 (ive got autometer electric gauges)
all last summer i ran the car with just the radiator full, nothing in my overflow, everything was great.
when it first started getting hot, i checked my radiator, it was low, i added fluid. then when it kept running warm, i filled overflow to hot.
192* thermostat, and waterpump i put in less then a year ago. i had carpet up a week or so ago, didnt see any coolat under carpet, so im assuming its not coming from heater core...
like i said earlier, nothing seems to leak except for power steering (not too worried about)
im mostly worried about problem 1 & 3.
would also just like to add, car runs like a champ. ive got all the power ive ever head, dont think i really hear any detonation or pinging or anything.
and coolant is the coolant green color. and oil is black.
