What would cause a car to smoke under the hood after you have done changed the valve cover gasket and spark plugs and still smoking after driving it
Do you
have the same problem?

Check to make sure there are no oil or coolant leaks. When you see the smoke, open the hood to identify where it is coming from.

Can you tell by the smell if it is coolant or oil?
