Default 1990 Loyale

I am looking at buying a 1990 Loyale wagon. 175,000 miles. It is perfect shape outside and in, and seems to run really well. One thing I was worried about though. I have driven it twice, for a total of about 20 miles, and just once when I was really getting on it up a hill, it spewed a little white smoke from the exhaust. It only happened that one time for about two seconds. I tried to do the same thing, and make it happen again, but it didn't.

What could this mean? The guy I am buying it from said he washed the engine before I came over with some chemical and perhaps it was burning that off as he had never seen it do that before. Don't think I buy that.

Any ideas? Anything else I should be wary of with this model of Suby? Going to check it out one more time tomorrow.

Thanks!

Any loss of power or anything of that sort? Other than that these old L series are very reliable and very easy to work on. Looking into getting one myself for a spare.

No loss of power at all and it only did it for a very short period of time, couple seconds.
