    z22se smoking / trying a oil addative?

    Just thought i would ask to see what people think.

    You may remember some of my threads about 15months ago. My car started to use more oil then normal more then a 1ltr every 1k miles and felt sluggish.

    VXL did a full engine rebuild under warranty replacing pistons, head etc.

    The other weekend i changed my tyres round and my mate noticed when i drove off that my car smoked a bit.

    I had the oil etc changed last week.

    Now on cold start if i rev it to 2.5K i do see smoke from the exhaust but it only happens while it is running on choke and cold start.

    I will do my own oil consumption test, should i be worried


    Surly the pistons \ stem oil seals can not be shot after 18K


    Or am i just worrying about nothing, i talked to my machanic friend who said not to really worry but keep an eye out on oil consumption etc. The car seems to be running better then it ever has at the moment too.

    Should i get a compression test done

    I was also wondering weather to try some oil additive

    anyone got views on this stuff, last thing i want to do is block the oil jet to the chain up?

    The smoke had a tinge of white to it.

    Just a update started car today and got the GF to rev it.

    no smoke at all and since the oil change i have done 500mile and the oil level is still at the same point so i am prob worrying about nothing

    Hi most z22se's do smoke if you rev them from cold for a very very short period if you leave it for 5 seconds it wont, its normal of that engine.
