Hello
My car is smoking heavily in the morning or after parking for a long time. This started after cleaning the sump. This stops after a few km drive. Tried changing the valve stem seals
Do you
have the same problem?

Your engine probably has a lot of wear and cleaning the sump, you increased the oil flow now.

The smoke may not be oil related at all. Pressure test the cooling system to see if it holds pressure.
