I have recently bought a 350SE from 1977 with 327.000 km on the engine (M116.985 with K-jetronic), but it has suddently started to smoke a lot and unfortunately blueish smoke, and it smells of burned oil. Also, I can see on the oil pin that it has been eating a lot of oil. 😞
But I am very puzzled, why it has appeared so suddenly. The car has been at the plate shop for some months to have some rust repairs done, and he has had to move it around for an unknown number of times, where he has turned it on and off. But before it went to the shop, it did not smoke like this with blueish smoke, and it also passed the MoD emission inspection in March, before it went to the plate shop.
I only drove it a couple of km yesterday and discovered the smoking, and did not dare to drive it further.
Do you have any clue and/or suggestion what could be wrong with the engine?
Thanx in advance,
