    When I first start my '94 Chevy 2500 truck the exhaust has lots of black oil in it. It makes a big mess. After the truck warms up the exhaust is clean. Is there any way I can clean up the exhaust when the engine is cold.

    Sounds like your valve guides / seats have gone south.

    I have used motor honey, no smoke, it comes in a couple different names with great success in older stuff it seals up leaks well & is reasonable in cost. My old 85 chevy (years ago) I used to dump two pints in per oil change, it had a bunch of leaks & wear, cut oil consumption by 90% I would say. I use it in my 99 now, 1 pint per oil change.

    If you had oil coming out the exhaust it wouldn't be running very long, what you are seeing is condensation "washing" carbon off the inside of the exhaust and spitting it out the tailpipe
