by tallchris01 on Mar 25, 2014 Vehicle: 1998 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan
I bought this Avalon having owned another 1st generation Avalon.
Didn't figure I'd need to have a PPI, but I should have gotten one.
Turns out the engine was a smoker.
Despite replacing the valve seals and spark plugs, it continued to smoke.
Quickly re-sold it.
