Yesterday, went to start my '01 and it started getting lots of white/blue smoke (note - hot day ... temperature about 100 deg). Idles OK, but started missing as soon as step on accelerator. First time it does this. Checked oil and cooling system - does not look like a blown head gasket. Fuel filter fairly new. Had to change out stock LP about a year ago due to intermittent power loss. Has been OK since except I started getting very short/infrequent power loss episodes about a month ago. Would run a week without any problem and then get the power loss - usually at slow cruising speed with no load on engine. Just Tap the accelerator and it would come right out of it and be good for another week or so. Does this problem sound like another LP problem or am I looking at a failed VP44?
