Question about 1995 Lexus ES 300
Smokes occasionally during startup, from exaust and from under. Burning oil too. Had compression check which checked out fine. could it be the oil pump?
My Lexus is doing the same thing. I had it diagnosed and I was told oil is leaking from the valve cover. The valve gasket needs to be replaced. About $700 to fix at a shop.

Not the oil pump, the most likely cause is the intake and exhaust valve seals, this accounts for the smoke on start up
