    Do a compression test, and a leak down see if you are burning oil... replace the plugs, wires, rotor, cap, wires?

    i did a compression test all cyl. fine didn't do a leakdown yet but i'll give it a try, new plugs, cap, wires, rotors fine. its fine at start up and u drive it for about 2 minutes then it slowly starts smoking more and more. i know i aslo have a vacuum problem which i'm not sure if thats helping with the smoking, i can take a picture to show how i have the vacuum lines running. or if someone knows where a picture or has a picture of there vacuum line setup on the b-18a1 without the fuel evap.

    Its only gonna smoke for a few reasons... bad rings, valve seals, bent valves... which would all give bad compression #'s and/or fail a leak down test./

    true , but i know the kid i bought it from said supposedly it didnt smoke, cause he bought a total teg and was going to put it in his crx and the teg ran when he drove it off the truck. well he totalled his crx before he was able to put it in. i guess the leakdown will only tell, i just have not noticed any excess oil cons
