When the car idles, it blows a little bit of grey smoke but when revved up it blows a bit more intermittently.

Edit: sorry, the engine is a 3.8L V6, not 3.5L as stated above.

Hello,

If the smoke your blowing out has a blueish hue to it, it might be worn valve seals. Anyway, here are a few links that should help you track down what is going on with your vehicle:

Let us know what you find out, and thank you for sending along the video.

Thanks,
Alex
