Default Integra smoke cloud

Yesterday when I started my 91 Integra it emitted a large cloud of blue smoke
that covered the whole driveway. It has never done this before or since, and
has never used any oil in its 118,000 miles. Any ideas? JIm

Blue smoke is associated with burning oil. Not sure exactly what
happened in your case but I'd have the car checked out by a tech.

It can be either the valve seals which have become hard and don't seal
anymore, or the piston rings which don't move freely.

You can do a leakdown test or have it done for you. This will give you a
good idea where this oil is coming from.
