That is caused from your valve seals. These seals slide over the valve stem and keep oil from getting into the cylinder. The reason that it stops after it warms is because these seals are rubber and when they heat up they are soft again as they are from the factory. When they are cold and have a lot of age on them they become brittle and hard. That is usually not to expensive of a job to do. Just depends what part of the US you live in. My daughter had a 93 Accord and I bought the seals for 35.00 and replaced the my self but I have been working on vehicles for 30 years. That job requires special tools. Hope this helped.

My Ford Windstorm Has White Smoke Coming Out Of Exhaust,ConstanLy,Thick White smoke


White smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. This can be from condensation in the muffler, but that type of smoke usually dissipates after a minute or two of running. Constant, thick white smoke is usually a sign of water leakage into the combustion chamber(s), either via a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block.

EXHAUST TROUBLE SHOOTING


If smoke is black indicates too much fuel
If smoke is white Could be coolant in the exhaust system
If smoke is blue possible excessive oil entering in the combustion system
Also if you have an automatic transmission with a vacuum modulator, it could be leaking transmission into the combustion
If you have too much oil in the engine, it will also smoke

I have a 1995 honda accord 209,000 miles,my car leaks antifreeze out of the muffler whenever i refill it,but i dont see any white smoke or have had any problems with it overheating..i recently changed the...


There is NO way water can get inside the muffler / exhaust pipe without evaporating, and causing a white smoke at the tailpipe. Additionally, in order to get inside, you would get major power and idling problems. I would look at the cooling circuits near the firewall ( cooling hoses to the internal heater, for example) because one of them must be dripping water externally onto the exhaust pipe or muffler. If the car never overheats, there is a possibility that you are simply overfilling the cooling water bottle. The full mark for accord bottles, is waaay down, it looks as if the bottle was empty. As soon as the engine heats up, it will send excess water overboard.
