Check or temporarily pull out the valve cover vent; or at a separate time, locate to see if your PCV valve is functioning correctly, you should have a check engine light on with this problem. Hopefully it's the PCV valve, it's cheap...

Check for leaks of oil and/or coolant all around the motor and on the ground. Remove your air intake tube that goes to the throttle body, should be clean or have a little bit of soot from a proper running car. If it's wet with coolant or oil then you're getting "blow-by" and exhaust is entering parts of the engine that it's not supposed to enter. Hopefully not the head gasket...

If the smoke is black then you are running too rich, this is controlled by the computer, do you have a check engine light on? check your map/maff sensor and your o2 sensors. You may have injectors that are leaking causing excess fuel to pass. Also, try a tune up and check your air filter. Get back to me OK. Make sure ALL of the cylinders are firing correctly.

No power noisy engine smokey exhaust


Clean air filter, fuel filter and turbo filter. Check the inlet and outlet manifolds incl. EGR valve and Turbo gate. If there is particle filter then may be it is clogged. If its a diesel then open the injectors and clean it.

'95 Honda Civic EX will not start after cleaning fuel injectors


I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al

My 95 Honda Civic dx (revving up and down)


sounds like you might of blown a head or intake manifold gasket or cracked head. If it sounds like a rollercoaster going up the tracks or tractor sound. it's that. It's expensive repair. My advice if you dont know anyone cheap get another used car until you fix it or whatever your situation is. Also, it idles up and down because of the air escaping from the crack. If engine doesnt hold constant pressurethats whate happens. everything is to the T when working with vehicles. Plus redline dont matter, theres a cut off point, however because of the high rev you could of caused the over rev and blew a gasket or cracked the heads. Especially if you didnt have the proper fluids to keep the temperature down. Good Luck. Been there.
