    i never really talked about it but.....when i did a headgasket set on my crx (d16a6) it still smoked...the only thing i stupidly did not change is my valve seals....when i first turn my car on....it only smokes condinsation ( quickly disapearing water burn) but when it gets warmed up....it starts blowin smoke....when i drive it and am constantly on the gas...the car fills up with smoke...the smoke is blue so i know it is oil..it aslo only comes out of the exhaust...not the motor....but could it be my vavleseals? or something more serious:confused:

    its probably your rings unfortunately

    usually a valve seal leak will result in more smoke at startup reducing over time...
    little smoke at startup leading to more smoke over time is prob not gonne be your valves seals...

    define a little?
    lmao

    something about this is not adding up
    do you have an exhaust leak?
    your car should not be filing with smoke unless 1. you are burning a lot of oil and have an exhaust leak under your car, or 2. you motor is leaking oil down onto the exhaust somewhere and thats causing the smoking that getting into your car...

    overfiling your motor with oil could be making the motor push it out onto the exhaust...?

    another problem with overfiling is the crank will spin in the oil chruning it into a froth from hell, ultimately leading to oil starvation... oil starvation wears anything with friction.. ie: bearings, walls, and of course rings...
    so overfiling can lead to your motor smoking, but i'd be a little more worried about the lower end blowing apart than the smoking situation...

    did you do the headgasket to try to stop the smoking in the first place?

    i would drain it and refill it with the right amount of oil if you think that could be it.

    second, i would look towards the piston rings. sounds like a lot of work to me. get your tools ready.

    You don't have to do rod bearings, but definitely inspect them upon removal. Also, for your sake, don't go through all of the trouble of ringing it without taking piston and cylinder measurements and comparing them to specs. I would go through the engine completely if I were you to keep from having to pull the thing apart a third time in the near future.
