--
I have 226,00 miles on my 88 Honda Accord, 30,000 miles in ther re-built
engine, and a year on my factory set new carborater. during cold opperations
my car runs rough blowing blue smoke[I assume from running rich] with the rpms
at 2,200. After worming up to opperating temp engine runs fine, but at times
engine will run on after shutting off. I have the shop manual for it and am
able to do most diagnotics and repairs myself. But shop manual does npt give a
full discription of carborater opperations from cold start to opperating temp
to by able to locate the problem with all the vaccuum lives, silanoides and
such on my car. CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE.

blue smoke is excess oil, not excess fuel. run-on is excess carbon
deposits cause by ...wait for it... excess oil.

the fact that you've had the engine rebuilt leads me to believe you're a
victim of the usual sloppy re-build practices that prevail in that
industry. especially the use of scotchbrite for cleaning - otherwise
known as "engine death".

i think your best solution is:

1. fine a new mechanic that actually knows what they're doing.

2. get a replacement "j.d.m." engine from a reputable importer. it'll
cost you a few hundred, but it'll last you as long as your original
engine, if you treat it right. rebuild's rarely last 1/3rd that long.
and in your case, 1/100th.
