Question about 1990 Honda Civic
1990 Honda Civic problem with cold start and blowing smoke, runs fine after warm
Honda engines (D series imparticularly) run quite smokey on start up. For some reason condensation builds in the exhaust once it has been left (this is assuming the smoke is clearish/white) Occasionally, if it is blue smoke, you might have a leaky oil seal (typically the crank position sensor), but it's no biggy as it's only a few mls of oil per week.
There's no such thing as a tune up. Honda's are controlled by their ECU. As long as your air filter is cleaned regularly, and especially having regular oil changes 6,000miles, it should run +250k miles.

You may need a tune up if its been longer than 12,000 miles since the last one.
