Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 250, 00 miles
My Honda starts emitting white smoke from the exhaust pipe after 2 to 3 minutes of idling. I held a white paper shop towel against the exhaust and collected what appears to be fresh (unburned) oil. Is it possible for oil to be getting into the exhaust manifold without going through the combustion chamber? My thinking is that the 2-3 minute delay is because it takes the exhaust system that long to heat up enough to start burning the oil that has collected inside. This is only a guess and I'm not even sure it is a possibility. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
have the same problem?
