1992 Honda accord smoking

My car will start to smoke after driving for awhile. I noticed it coming from the oil pan area. I am wondering if it is a gasket. Am I able to drive it about 300 miles to meet my father who is a mechanic? It's been doing this awhile and hasn't had much of a problem. But recently it has really started to smoke a lot and is coming into the vents when I am at a stop light or am finished driving.

I have a 1992 honda accord now the third spark plug is geting oil when you start tha car whit smoke comesout exhaust then the car has no power theops from 65 goin up hills the motor shakes likts about to...

usually oil on a plug is the beginning of the end-especially for an older car. Your smoke is either from valve seals leaking (bad) or oil control rings (worse)-prepare to replace it in the near future.

1992 honda accord needs oil every 10 minutes of drive time

This is not good . With that much oil in that amount of time.
Unless there is a cloud of smoke so thick coming out of the tail pipe you cannot see through it, There must be an external oil leak. If you look under your Honda and there is oil all over the underside it will be necessary to locate the general area of the leak to pin point the problem area. Starting with the oil filter and drain plug. You may need help with that.

I have a 95 Honda accord with a V-6 it has about 159000 miles on it, it seems to use a-lot of oil. I know hondas are known for thier long life. any comments on what might be causeing the oil use.

Do you notice smoke when starting engine or at a stop idling. If it does smoke, sounds like you may have bad valve stems, which let oil pass a rubber type o-ring and gets into the piston area and that's how the smoke occurs.

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad

This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)

1992 honda accord dx burns oil

No, Just change your Valve Cover....sometimes the seal leak that is around the spark plug tube.. When you get the valve cover, make sure it comes with the four seals that goes over that area, because some kits, do not come with them

I have a 1992 honda prelude. During a hard acceleration, the car fails to accelerate. Instead, it produces rough sound as if it is not getting a consistant amount of fuel. Slow acceleration is OK. Also...

Check for free play on distrubtor.
If you has a known good disturbutor then do the swap.

===== Lite white smoke during warm up is OK.
If the white smoke is still noticable after 15 minutes of start up then you should start monitor the coolant level and oil level.
If the temp. is raising then it can be stage one of blown headgasket.

Keep track of the temp. and make sure the oil is not getting a white/creamy texture.
DO NOT drive it if it's overheating.
