    Question Engine Problems?

    Hey guys again, As you know I have a 95 SLS, 53k Miles. A couple of weeks ago I was out riding it pretty hard, constant high RPM's not redlining though. I was out for about 45 minutes? And when i got home i noticed smoke/steam comming from my engine but it wasnt black smoke. A friend told me it was maybe because i didnt let the car warm up enough? Any suggestions?

    You need to know what the source was. It could be something as simple as something you ran over burning off, or it could be a minor coolant leak or even a minor oil leak brought on by the "spirited" driving.

    I get a little bit of burning smell after a high RPM run...... No smoke, but I attribute it to bad valve cover gaskets.....
