Default No Smoke After MMO Soak

My SC2 is approaching 95,000 miles. I believe I'm the 3rd or 4th owner. Oil consumption isn't bad, but since I don't know how well it was cared for previously, I did an MMO soak just to clean things up a bit.

- 2 ounces per cylinder, let it sit for a couple of days.
- Didn't recover any excess MMO at the end.
- The tops of the cylinders look black, but it doesn't look like there's a heavy layer of crud or anything.
- Started up right away, no white smoke came out.

Does this mean it was already relatively clean?

It probably means that all the MMO leaked down into the oil pan. I'd say you probably should do another soak or two.
