You're welcome. Likewise valve seal problems would be similar to bad piston rings, consumption of oil with emission of smoke, especially when starting from cold. Oil would not leak out. If you look closely, you should notice oil around the plug wires and tubes, indicating hardened plug seals. Foreign cars work on the same principles, just that designs are different and being not familiar means you might be slower with any work on them. In fact Japanese cars are rather easy to work on as they are quite mechanic friendly without the necessity to remove too many components to get to one, except accessibility might be hampered by space constraints.
