minutes. The smoke is grayish/bluish. Anyone else had this prob??

Thanks!

Probably valve seals or rings, eventually it will clog the cat and then
things will go down hill fast. Do a standard compression test if the
compression is good more than likely it is the valve seals.

Thanks for your advice...I'm a car repair newbie...what is the standard
compression test. How difficult is it to replace the valve seals or rings?
Thanks Smile

Procure a repair manual $30.00, a compression test gauge kit $80.00 and a
basic procedure

The repair manual will tell you your cylinder psi and the mayimum
differential. Google is your friend.
