    well, it only smoked a bit, about 30 second. It has 107,000+ and I haven't done anything to it (when i mean nothing i mean nothing, just oil changes and filter changes). I was expecting to smoke out the neighborhood. I guess I have been lucky but a problem I found is that it was smoking from not only the exhaust, but from under the car (mufflers leak) and from the engine where the headers meet the exhaust. My question is should I replace just the exhaust system or swap out the headers while i'm at it. Any suggestions would help, thanks.

    if barley any smoke came out something is up, did you use the whole can? you need to in a sence drown the engine with it, let it sit for 15 min then do it all over but at a steady pour.

    I followed the directions on the can and in the post. Sucked up 8 oz thru the brake line, let it sit for 15 minutes, and nothing. I will try it again on Friday and let you guys know what happens. The car definitely ran and idled better today though.

    I wouldn't worry to much about the smoke show, as long as you did it as directed your good to go.
