SPRORADICALLY EMITS CLOUDS OF SMOKE AT IDLE

2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 57,000 miles

I have a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser with 57000 miles. Sporadically when it idles it emits clouds of smoke, this continues for approximately 2 miles, then stops, it may not do this again for days or weeks, sometimes it will do this at a stoplight or stop sign, and sometimes when it is first started.
