B18 smokes like crazy
« on: June 25, 2014, 09:02:18 PM »
K so I bought a 95 integra right so it was running good and everything bit one day on the freeway boom big a** cloud so I checked the compression and I was 150 150 150 150 so made me think valve seals right well I got the head rebuilt and nope didn't fix the problem .  So my question is could the rings still be bad even with good compression ??

Yeah smokes when you rev the engine but like clouds not baby clouds but monster clouds I was reading on other Honda forms and they were saying that the cat and the whole exhaust can be full of oil causing it to do that ... Any input

That is possible but depending on how many miles are on the car it is most likley the oil rings. On your pistons. When you did a compression test what did the spark plugs look like?

They look black as if they were running rich but also they look as if they might have been replaced

Yes the oil ring csn be bad and still have good compression. The oil rings are the first thing to go on the bottom end of a b18 motor

Sure, but most likley one was bad and then the other one went bad before they could fix the first issue

It depends on what your end goal is? f you want to build it? Or just leave it stock?
