Smoke under the hood

I know that sounds stupid, but I don't have a clue what it could be. I don't think I'm burning oil. I just cleaned my valve cover and put a new gasket in. What else could it Be?

If you just repalce your valve cover gasket it could be residue on the manifold. I bet is smells good . If you can't find it clean your engine with some degreaser (gunk) and then look for leaks.

Here's an idea...If you have a stock air cleaner setup, look inside to see if oil is backing up inside. Some times the pcv and hose gets plugged and oil blow by builds here and eventually drips down on to the manifold or exhaust, causing a burning smell that drives you nuts. If you have this problem, start the motor, remove the pcv valve, spray it out with gumout and spray inside the hose going to the base of the carb to clean out the small orifice inside the hose. This will allow proper vacuum in this hose, make the pcv valve work properly, eliminate oil into the air cleaner, stop the dripping, and remove the smell. Have fun looking.. Mike
