Smoke from the engine...

Ok im a little scared, everytime I start the engine, no more then 10-20 seconds, there seems to be smoking coming from what it looks like, my headers, I dont know why, any ideas? BTW I did coat them a tad bit with WD-40, maybe its just that burning off or what? Dont tell me WD-40 will damage anything in my engine...

If it is coming from your headers something is dripping on them I would say check to see if you valve covers are leaking OIL.

Let it smoke. If it smokes for more than 20min, be worried.

Thanks guys, followed your advice dome, let it run for a good 10 min and not even a trace of anymore smoke, guess it was the WD-40 frying after all. lol thanks guys!

the headers might have been rusting.
