    Hello all, im new, i used to use a UK forum called hondaevolutions for the technical side of things, but since the forum has died i thought id see how i get on here as most of the time i google anything technical i need to know i end up getting linked here.

    Basically my EK4 has on occasion blown out some blue smoke on startup and from what i can see while driving in the mirror (only at night in the headlights of other cars) it smokes more than i am happy with when im 'giving it some', friends who have been behind say there is a bit of smoke but no more than normal for a vtec, im not too sure though.

    From what reading i have done the startup smoke will be valve stem seals and the smoke while racing is piston rings.

    The car seems to have used alot of oil in a fairly short space of time and there seems to be some oil on the block only below the headm would it make sense to replace the head gasket too?

    I want to do all this without removing the engine, is this posible?

    Are there other things i should replace while im there eg timing belt?

    Sorry there's alot there but any help much appreciated.....

    Thanks in advance
    Aaron

    so you want to replace the head gasket, rings, and valves right

    I think so, i was hoping someone would be able to offer some feedback and clarify....And i dont think the valves are shot, i think its the stem seals
