My Lexus ES300 has big puff of white smokes on start up and start up only. It usually lasted for about 5-10 seconds and stop when drive.

This only happens when I have prior Highway driving. Park for up to 4 hrs or overnight. Why?

I took it to 3 mechanics for help. 2 out of 3 said it's a normal condition for Japanese car. Third mechanic did a leak test and found a leak on #3 cylinder and recommended to rebuilt or an engine replace.

Is this neccessary? Is there other alternative for the fix? Thank you.
