Icon9 Smoke and Liquid exhaust

i went out to take pictures of my car and a tree trimming company was cutting trees and asked me to move it. Sure. Started her up reversed out and moved it to the front. As i pulled around i thought hey why not get my phone out and record the exhaust.... set it up pushed record and rev'ed her up. Went back to find spay everywhere. Tail pipe was wet, touch it and it was a Black thin liquid. i was very stunned tried to smell it and it gave off no real sent but exhaust. Went and played back the video and there was white smoke every time i rev'ed. i wanted to cry. First thing i can think of is Piston rings or blown piston. I hope to heaven its not! and i dont kow what to do please help. I knew getting this car was too good to be true

How/Where to host Pictures & Videos


When your engine is cooled...do us a favor and open up the radiator cap and see how much coolant you have...it should be to the brim of the filler neck...
also inspect the ground where the Prelude has been parked to see any fluid spillage.

hahahaha, you would have ALOT more symptons wrong with the car if you had a blown piston.
