Hi. I own a 2010 4,0 l 4x4 auto Fortuner. I recently towed a Bush Lapa caravan to Kruger and got 4,5 km pl. In Kruger I averaged 8,5km pl. I started noticing it smoked in the mornings but put that down to the moisture content in Kruger. But this went on for about 1 and half hrs. This does not seem normal. Has anyone experienced this. A friend thinks it could be the oil valve seals leaking overnight and then burning off during a slow drive next day.Any experience of this?
Thx. Anthony ?(

What colour smoke? How is the oil level? Did you try changing your fuel?

Anthony, I've got a v6 Isuzu. That oil your mate is talking about burns off within a minute max. Unless it's really bad.
What oil are you using ?
