HELLO ALL....I have a volvo 850 2.5, she runs very nice, given full service, cam belt, oil change, cleaned throttle body, flame trap etc. When running if i pull dip stick out slightly i can see puffs of white smoke, i would normally consider this to be breather problem, but i have replaced the flame trap and cleaned breather pipes!. My fear is a more serious problem of blowby..... i dont have excesive crank case pressure just the white smoke and she runs like a dream!!!!. Any ideas before i think about majour overhall :

hi i would have thought a certain amount of condensation will form in the dipstick tube. it could just be steam. i would keep an eye on things
and see how it goes. hope this helps.

Thankyou for replying to my white smoke question, i'm probably being over causious with my checks, but she is such a lovely car to drive, and so easy to maintain.Thanks again mate!! :
