Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 225K miles
My upper radiator hose busted and I ended up blowing the head gasket and they had to put a refurbished head because my was cracked. When I picked the car up today the owner (who has done great work in the past) said it smoking right now. Keep an eye on it and swing it by in a few weeks to check how things are going. Well going down the highway I noticed smoke. It wasn't smoking before the radiator issue---but I had to keep an eye on the oil level. Is it burning more because of the head being better/fixed providing better compression or with the ring need to run for a while to re-seat?
