Honda d16a6 cyl head on d16y3 block possible the d16a6 block has a crack,chucking white smoke all over the place,head has been skimmed new gaskets but same problem
Do the block chemical leak test and coolant pressure test to rule out blowning head gasket.
Check all freeze plugs to rule out coolant leak on the hot engine block.
Check for any hose leak.
Start monitor for coolant and oil lose.

SOURCE: possible cracked block or head
Have you checed the thermostat, often when they are locked closed a vehicle will overheat and "regergitate" fluid through the overflow. And just so you know noone can tell by a "carbonation test if you have a problemb. (a carbonation test tells you af a change in ph.) wich is not always the affect or result of a blown head/ head gasket.
My sugestion would be change the thermostat. ($20.00) flush cooling system. (Do it yourself $15.00/ and a hose) Drain water and fill with 50/50 mix of coolant and water.

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....
I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.
What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick response. Very much appreciated your input, all makes sense and got my mind on the right track again. Thanks"
if oil is leaking from the the top to bottom, check the gasket below the cover that has the daewoo name and sign on on top of the engine block. it could be cracked. replace with new one without any gasket sealant just replace the original and done
