Smoking bug

Post by Cdub on Fri Sep 13, 2013 10:25 pm

It was a treat to meet a few of you guys last weekend at say it loud, and to see your rides.
I drove my bug for the first time last weekend for about 3 miles and 20 minutes or so and it smoked when I turned it off. It seems to be coming from the drivers side around the manifold. There is also a smell. It does not smoke out of the tail pipes. What could it be? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Chris

It was good meeting you as well Smile
Sounds like you probably have a leaking valve cover. If the gasket is bad it can leak right down on the exhaust and of course burn off. I would check that first
