    I am trying to sell my car and just when I find a buyer the thing stops working. Its an 85 FJ 60 with a 2F engine. It will start but won't idle. Also my air filter is drenched in oil and smoke is coming out of the carb. WHATS WRONG?????

    Hi, Sounds like your positive crankcase vent valve (pcv) is plugged up, get a new one installed, allong with a new air filter, and hope for the best!!!!! Earl

    Sounds like a head gasket to me. Does the motor have a miss to it. Had this happen to me with another vechile.

    I took out the pcv valve and it is stuck(no rattle when I shake it) so I hope that replacing that will help. But where do I get a new one?

    I'm asuming that Man-a-fre would have them....make sure that your oil doesn't look like mayonase....or smell like gas...that wouldn't be cool.
