I appreciate any assistance or thoughts before I just replace engine or donate car to charity.
The smoke appeared a light color maybe grey/blue. Hard to tell.
They only told me that oil was leaking into the engine block which was coming apart, and as it filled up was causing the smoke.
I am not very auto mechanics saavy so if there are specific questions I should be asking them, please let me know. I can also run over to their lot tomorrow (where the car is sitting) and try to better ascertain the smoke color.
As an FYI - The check engine light has never come on in the 11+ years I have owned the car.
