    I'm not quite sure if there is an existing thread, however this is what I am experiencing with regards to smoking.

    Everytime I go to work I pass thru Daang Hari, and when I reach the speed of 60-80kph at 2,000-3,000rpm I see smoke coming out of my tailpipe, I'm not quite sure of what colour though but it's sort of white or grey. It ONLY happens when I go to work.

    Now when I go home from work it doesn't happen, the smoke isn't there anymore so I can say it's intermittent. What could be the possible cause of this?

    Car is B14 GA16DNE.

    I hope you could help guys.

    Thanks!

    Do you have your car tuned up regularly? Change your air filter?

    Is your engine performing normal? "normal" power or less than normal?

    Is your engine loosing engine oil? Maybe its leaking into your cylinders since your car is rather old. A simple compression test can show this.

    Bro, pwede ba ako magrecommend sayo ng competent mechanic and yet mura pa maningil and honest? Free checkup din sya kaya you may want to drop by and pa-quote ka na rin if magkano aabutin ng pag-repair sa oto mo. Then get back to him if you have your budget already for the repair/s. But when it comes to labor fee...super mura xa........Sa may Salitran-Dasma lang sya, along Aguinaldo Hiway. Shop's name is 006 Auto Shop, just right before the Stoplight of Salitran or bago ka dumating sa Honda Dasma. Owner/Mechanic's name is Mel Casaba. Honda Expertise lalo na sa Transmission, Toyota, BMW, Mitsu, Isuzu etc etc...lahat kaya nyang gawin since Chief Mechanic po sya. If ever, mention mo na lng name ko sa knya na nirerefer kita ha.......My name is Ms. Fannie..para marecall nila ako, kamo ako yung may Honda ESi Red/Matic. Thnx.

    Yes, the car is tuned up regularly. Air filter is still stock, it needs replacement on the next oil change though.

    Engine performance is still the same, it's not sluggish, it's still runs normal.

    Yes, engine is losing oil and I see oil drips on the parking lot. I'll follow your recommendation for a compression test. Thanks! :D

    Also, I read in one of the threads here that the rocker gasket may be the culprit. It hasn't been replaced ever since. Also, the smoke doesn't happen when parked and racing the engine. Is that normal?

    I'll follow that recommendation, thanks. Is this somehow related to valve shims?

    Looks like rocker gasket issue yan sa iyo. If busted ang piston ring nyan, regardless of the speed, mag e emit yan ng white smoke. Since during high speeds lang cya lumalabas, it's worth trying. Napaka dali palitan nyan. You can do it on your own.

    Pariham po ng pic...

    Thanks paps, opo pinalitan ko na sya nung monday lang, naka bili ako sa Advance ng replacement worth 200. Nung ikinabit ko so far hindi naman umusok. yung pinalitan pala na rocker gasket ay sobrang kunat na, at nung pinalitan ko eh hindi na sya buo nung tinanggal ko.

    Buti na lang may tsikot. Less gastos. haha!

    Obeserve ko muna rin for 1 week. Thanks for your help!

    Payo ko lang kung gasket bibilin mo hindi baleng mahal iyong ibang replacement kasi madaling tumigas ang goma na sandali lang mag leak ulit para iwas abala.
