Last question of the year:-
Dreaded white smoke from exhaust but seems to be only when I go into reverse. There is no water in oil or oil in water. She doesn't appear to be using water , performance has not changed and has been doing this for 2 years -1991 LPT .

is this all the time or just when backing out drive etc when cold, as if so it's because you get it blown back at you,you notice it more, where as when you drive staright off you don't see it hardly, but you will always get a bit off white smoke when starting out from cold as is the condensation etc in the exhaust system

Thanks 16 Saabs. I feel a bit stupid now. It probably is that and I'll check but it seems it happens when still warming up.
