20W40 : shock: Check again.
Being a Service Writer there are times What I think I know is way off base. Having said that, I'm pretty sure that is close to gear oil in viscosity. Change it and put 10w30 in her.
Is it a " her"? : Lol: Again: Is it there any bluish smoke when it is started after an 8 hour set or so?
Are you getting a gray smoke at all?

I havn't noticed any blusih smoke, and very little grey smoke on cold start (if any smoke at all)

I've just noticed my 93 Galant is blowing a fair bit of smoke now. Is there any way I can reduce this or stop it?

I guess we know why they went to a heavy oil. My guess is worn rings in the cylinders. Oil gets into the combustion chamber and burns.
