My Car Exaust Smokes White Only On Cold Start Up. What Is Wrong? by sam1dot2: 10:24pm On Aug 18, 2013
It started like four days ago. If I start my car (Camry 2000 model) every morning a lot of white smoke comes out and after a while (1 - 2 minutes) gets less but still little steam like smoke, clear when the engine gets hot/heats up. Also if the engine cools after parking for hours it happens. Is my engine having issues any help to stop the smoke is highly welcomed.

Is it smoke or steam? Once u notice it, put ur hand against d "smoke" nd see if it condenses

It's normal. It's not white smoke but steam!

If this just started then you have either a bad pcv valve(dont know if camrys have this) or bad engine valve seals.
The white smoke means oil is leaking into the cylinders after the car is parked for a while.

All of the above opinions could probably be correct but try driving your car along with someone folowing you from behind when the car is warm and the smoke/ steam has stopped and let them observe to see if there is smoke coming from your exhaust when you accelerate.

If it does, then you may have weak engine valve seals or piston rings on the way out.

Car-Doctor.

Yes, it condenses. But it is more in recent time.

No smoke on motion when the engine is warm up. It happens for 1 - 2 minutes then it will reduce to normal little steam. If possible I will post a picture of it.

Guy, ur car is alright. I believe u notice it more on cold mornings. If u tink otherwise, do a scan nd see if u will pick up any codes relating to emission. Do well to keep d house informed

your car might be running slightly richer than it use to. Though, it is normal for a car to run rich on cold start to quickly bring the engine to operating temperature.
