Oil Sludge, White smoke etc...
« on: December 21, 2016, 10:38:03 AM »
I bought a Lancer GTA 2013 a couple of months ago. I never had any issues until last weekend. Acceleration became slow. When I checked under the hood at the gasoline station, the oil had the consistency of a yougurt. I had an oil change right there and then. I was able to go home but I could hear a clicking sound or "hiccups" on the engine. The following morning, the tail pipe started giving off white smoke. I brought it to Mitsubishi. There were no error codes found. They replaced the spark plugs but the car is still not working right. They still don't know what's wrong. Any ideas what it could be?

Is the oil still sludgy? You probably need to get all that sludge out, try running some pre-oil change cleaner and get another oil change. Maybe 2 or 3 more. It is hard to tell how bad it is unless you open it up. You should bring it to a mechanic and maybe drop the pan to see how bad it is.

It's quite unlikely for a 2013 car to develop oil sludge at this stage. But since you bought the car used, anything is possible.
