1997 Toyota Avalon 73, 560 miles.
My gaskets were fixed but I still smell a burning smell when I drive the car. Mechanic at Toyota said it was could either be a valve job or gasket. I tried the gasket fix but car is still smelling like burning oil. Sometimes after traveing on the freeway at 75 to 80 mph, there is smoke coming out of the tailpipe. The smoke is white. This is driving me crazy, car is otherwise in good shape.
Thanks for any help, advice anybody can offer. Also, service technician said the valve job would cost around 1,100.00 to repair, does that sound right?
