so this spring I had noticed smoke from the exhaust at start up. It would happen pretty much everytime. That coupled with my dissapointing 1/4 times led me to start pulling the engine out. I think I'm just going to take the engine into somebody to have it rebuilt. Whatever I decide I will keep everyone up to date. Also after doing more research into this. It's probably a bad valve guide causing this, but with 160,000 miles on it I think it's time for a rebuild. And from now on I will be using only premium gas in this car, to see if that helps with the 1/4 times. Well now I have pulled the engine, and kind of cleaned it up. Hopefully I can take it in soon to get the valve work done and possibly head gasket to.
