90 Accord Smokes when cranked

02-01-2011, 06:55 PM
I have a 90 Honda Accord with the 2.2 engine. Had the head done replaced the head gasket and bolts, valve job done, replaced valve seals, and PCV valve and now when it is cranked it smokes for about 1 minute then stops smoking. It runs great just smokes when cranked. Any suggestions on what to do next...:banghead:

sounds something related to what you just had done. White smoke? It's either head gasket or valve seals. Did you have the head machined? Do a compression check. What often happens is the head slightly warps over time. You can do all that work & still end up with a slight head gasket breech if the head isn't flat
