Just installed brand new head and head gasket in my 2001 Honda Civic SOHC. The block was machined and new head bolts were used.
I started it up ran for a short couple minutes and shut it off due to massive amount of white smoke coming from exhaust.
Everything is done by the the book and to the specs and torque requirements.
What could be causing this?
Did I just not let it run long enough to burn off or could my rings be bad? I haven't done a compression or leak down test yet but that's my next step.
I am just hoping to get some thoughts on this before hand.
