SMOKING

1988 Toyota Corolla • 120,000 miles

The car is smoking even after changing head gasket, con rod bearing, piston rings, valve seals and refilling and refacing the cylinder head. It used to smoke a little but it is smoking more after changing the spare parts. Please advise.

Did you check to make sure the cylinders were within spec? Did you check the valve guides? As far as the smoke, I assume it is blue smoke from the exhaust. Let me know if it is something different.
