YESTERDAY A PLUME OF WHITE SMOKE CAME FROM THE EXHAUST PIPE BUT ONLY FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS SMOKE?

1995 Toyota Camry • 271,500 miles

Today the smoke is almost non-stop!

--You're burning coolant in the cylinders-possibility here could be a blown headgasket, cracked head or block-intake manifold leak-Get it block and pressure tested

If the smoke is slightly grey (blue) you have a problem of oil being burnt in the cylinders or being discharged into the exhaust from the exhaust valve seals.

Check you engine oil level.

KJLow2008,

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

The car had over 3 quarts to much oil which was causing the smoke. Once the oil was removed and the appropriate level of oil was achieved, the smoke went away and the car has been running like a gem ever since!

Thank you for your assistance!
