Oil is clean. I think as it heats up something expands and seals the leak possibly. Idk. I gotta take the intake off and valve cover to adjust a chattering valve tomorrow. Probably will end up taking the heat off and replaces the head gasket and inspect for a crack maybe.

Has the coolant level dropped at all? Sounds like some seepage from the head gasket which seals when things heat up and expand. Did you have your block decked/cleaned-up?

Start pulling spark plugs and smell them for coolant. I had this problem in my thunderbird many moons ago with a cracked HG. I couldn't figure out where the coolant was going, it wasn't in my oil, it wasn't in my exhaust and it wasn't on the driveway, but the car kept eating the reach on the #4 cylinder. I didn't finally put two and two together until the motor hydrolocked.

Does it do it every time you run the car?

Yea every time then after it heats up it stops smoking, also number one cylinder doesn't seem to be firing we checked the heat of the headers and its at 90 and the rest are around 190ish. We also have a valve tap from that side we are leaning towards the intake valve isn't adjusted right so the fuel mixture isn't going in like it should therefore not igniting. Our biggest fear is that maybe the block has a crack in it and coolant is leaking into the cylinder that way.
