Looks like a overfill, but you said it was just above the min mark? You are reading the dipstick with the engine fully warmed up AND running right? If yes, then get it in for a compression/leakdown test.

Good luck.

be sure to drain from the sump (engine plug) and not tank. If you try to drain a portion of the tank when hot... you will drain the entire contents. Ask me how i know.

1. Warm up engine at idle... let the smoke show start... once nice and hot.. check oil...
*If it is at MIN... do I want to drain any?
*Anything above MIN... drain a bit?

2. Once a portion of oil is drained... go for drive...
*Monitor OIL PRESSURE
*Monitor ENGINE TEMP
*CHECK ACCELERATION AND POWER

3. Cross fingers hope no more smoke...
* and if there is still lots of smoke... cross fingers and hope for no more damage.

I will also add octane boost since the last tanke was 87 octane... which I was told is bad!!!!

remember, it takes a long time to burn off an exhaust system full of oil. it won't be just a 10 minute drive.

Update

I was hoping to get some oil drained this weekend... but started with re/re a new rad in the 91 Accord.

So once I got that done, I move it out of the way and pushed the 911 out of the garage... so I didnt smoke out the garage!

Started it up.... wee bit off a poof... not much... hardly any smoke now.... now it just appears to be the leaky residue that hits the heat exchangers etc...

Was also told to add 2 bottles a AC Delco EOS... release any sticky rings etc... so I did... went out for a drive... and got it nice and warm... no smoke... just the little bit from burning off the leaky oil residue.

Parked it in the driveway... at idle... checked oil... it is near the top line...

Will leave it for now... doing an oil change at the end of the week... my mechanic wants the EOS to run through the engine lots...

When we do the new oil change... will check plugs etc... and add EOS to the new oil also.

Thanks for everyones help.

Now I'm thinking you just had water in your gas, or some other fluid that isn't supposed to be in there.

Don't add a lot of EOS. It is too thick. Also, too much ZDDP will kill your Catalytic Converter. There are other issues better explained by the likes of Lubby or Charles Navarro. Just use a quality (Brad Penn, Swepco...) 20W50 oil and change it regularly.
