Question Does this seem like a normal start up?

This was after sitting overnight.



My exhaust pipes are black, like Im running too rich.

Can't be sure it is this.

I think someone with exhaust valves had this and the valve was sticking.
Does the 172 have those?

I can't tell diff from mine (although my valves stick then settle down, cold or warm start so I get a rattle which disappears after about 3-4 seconds).

By the way, Len, that was a slow-motion 240 frames per second. Myk, I do think there are exhaust valves on the M152 engines.

I was actually more interested in any particulate matter seen in the exhaust. Thats why recorded it in slow motion. Does anybody see smoke, either unburnt fuel or oil?

I recorded this a while ago. Just got around now to posting it. Busy life and all that you know, much as people might think I do not live for my car. (Yes, I know heresy)

I thought I was imagining it BUT yes, I saw a faint (largish) cloud come out at start. I don't have that.

If that is normal for you, I would imagine you're adding every few thousand KM. Only time I add (and thats been 2x in about 14K KM) is after a whole lot of exhilarating driving (which does NOT happen only 2x/yr).
