    I was driving the K5 yesterday and trying to figure out why everybody was giving me dirty looks.I looked in the mirror to find a HUGE cloud of smoke.
    It doesn't smoke until it's warmed up.Once it's up to temp,it's like it builds up at an idle and puffs out really bad when I take off.It seems to get better once the rpm's come up but it still smokes a little.
    I was thinking it could be valve guide seals but don't they usually smoke when it's cold and lessen as it warms up?Any ideas?
    I was really looking forward to the Y2K5 run but this might put a stop to that.

    Sounds like your choke is not disengaging properly.

    Well color of smoke is going to help with this question, Black smoke is rich mixture of gas giong into the cylinder, blue smoke oil is getting into cylinder or white which would be water. :P If it's black then check as the other guy suggested, your choke.
