The smoke cleared and the engine runs great. Even drove it onto a trailer and into the garage at my new place. I cannot say how impressed I am with how much these engine can handle. The only thing I had to replace was the starter and o well the element was at 150,000 miles. Things are gonna need to get fixed eventually. I would recommend a Element to anyone. Good job Honda!

This is one of the variable valve timing solenoid symptoms that are also the cause. The VVT solenoid system performs the best with clean engine oil. When the oil has a lot of impurities, it loses viscosity. This can also cause clogging in the variable valve timing solenoid system, thus also clogging the chain and the gear.

PCV Valve-After each combustion process, the exhaust valve routes these gases into the exhaust system where the catalytic converter turns them into much less toxic fumes before releasing them into the atmosphere.
