1990 240 Oil in throttle body. 200 1990

All IC engines have some sort of blow by, including new engines. That is why there is either an external catch can or a system to burn the oil vapors when the engine is running. It doesn't mean that your rings are shot or that the valve stem seals are worn down to nothing.

I thought it was interesting that the engine seems to run fine once it warms up. That statement caused me to point out the ECT sensor, which tells the computer to increase the amount of fuel when attempting a cold start.

You could also push the gas pedal down to the floor while starting, this turns off the injectors allowing for a 'flooded' engine to restart.
Keeping it running is better than buying new
