I agree..kinda

Every engine I have rebuilt that had bad guildes or seals would blow a big cloud of smoke if you let off the gas down a long hill..then punch it..that is alot higher vacuum than at any doesnt even smoke at an idle till you sit there and it starts to stumble a bit..just hard for me to believe it is the seals and or the guides..but i have been wrong before.. the only MB dealer in Utah told me to run a few tanks of fuel with Techron in it..thinking it was washing at an idle.... thanks for your reply...i am going to post when i get to the bottom of it.. if it is guides..i would think a total rebuild is in order with 200k on the bottom like a dream...thanks again
