In 1990 Ford offered the Probe in a GT model with a 4 cylinder 2.2 litre turbo motor. If you are bellowing out smoke (bluish white if oil) there is a good chance the bearing are wearing out in the turbo and oil in getting in the exhaust. You can usually check the turbine shaft play in the turbo. If the smoke is heavy white and has kinda a sweet smell or alot of moisture is comming out the exhaust pipe you likely have a blown head gasket.AnswerOnly going by the details you are describing I would guess your engine is worn out. White smoke is an indication of to much oil getting into the cylinders and being burned and oil leaks are a sign of defective or worn out oil seals. Sounds like its time for a engine overhaul. , EzForJesus
PS a real thick white cloud of smoke is sometimes caused by a faulty modulator valve on the transmission sending automactic transmissin fluid thru the engineAnswerWhite smoke says coolant is getting into the combustion chamber. You might a head gasket problem. If you were burning oil, you would have bluish smoke. AnswerFor the white smoke problem, perform either a combustion leak test(which checks for exhaust gases in the radiator,or a compression test which will tell you if you have a head problem. Answeryou might try checking the end of your muffler to see if there is oil going through your exhaust system. if there is that probably means there is oil in your combustion chamber, which might be caused by collapsed piston rings. if this is what is happening you will need a new engine or you can have your engine rebuilt.
What is your question?
The nosiey engine in ford 1990 how can we overcome it?
Oil is being burned during combustion, leaky gasket or something like that

i think that it might work
In many cases leaves can cause smoke to blow through the defrost of a 1990 Ford F 150
Not a DIY job. Specialized tools are required.
No it does not. But, why are you asking? Have a nice day.
In a 1990 LX it is under the passenger seat.
transmisions are complacated take to a good shop./
it is in the back in the trunk. it is on the drives side in the bottom, kinda in the floor then there should be a switch in there. its just a white push button ACE
White smoke means there's water or coolant mixing in with your fuel. Could mean a blown head gasket or intake manifold. Have the Blazer towed to a mechanic ASAP! The more you drive it like this, the more expensive the damage will be to repair.
