My 85 vette will sometimes blow out smoke from the exhaust after driving the car around, then stoping for a while and then when you restart you get a cloud of smoke, looks blue/white. The car will not do this when you start it up in the morning. Only after you have driven around for a while, there is no smoke coming out of exhaust when driving. The car has about 108,000 miles on it, and the previous owner had the car laid up for about 1 1/2 years before I pick it up in April of 01. Someone told me that 85's have a problem with valve seals. Does anyone have any ideas?
