Re: smoke

Pull the plugs and inspect them for oiling. Could be valve seals as they can sometimes wait for "warm" before seepage begin. How bad is the smoke?

Re: smoke

i know the carb is running rich, every since i put a new carb on i smell raw fuel,the tail pipe is full of soot,
i mainly drive the zuk at night making deliveries, so it could be either white or blue im not sure, about once a week i have to put water in the radiator, and about a quart of oil every 2 days, also theres a oil leak in the rear of engine so im sure thats alot of my oil consumption,
