Smoking mk2 golf 16v gti
« on: 25 June 2019, 12:52 »
Hi,

Currently my golf is SORN and doesn't get driven at all except for when I work on it or start the engine and move it around on the drive.
Recently it started smoking which had me worried. It doesn't smoke on initial startup but after a few minutes and continues when revved.

I have been told it could be due to the valve stem seals hardening/need changing as it is not being driven much. Key to note that I have had a four branch mani and full scorpion exhaust (both 2nd hand) fitted which 1. is blowing!! 2. may have residual crap in it that needs to be burnt off.

Or the head gasket, but from my reading, i would get significant loss of water and/or oil...which i don't.

So, I am keen to get your opinions on this too. I have included some videos of the car running
