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

When I start my 2003 ES300 smoke comes out the exhaust


The same thing happened to my 2003 ES300 - the smoke is coming from the oil seeping into the motor's cylinders. This is the classic "Oil Gelling" problem in Toyota and Lexus vehicles. There is a factory recall on it, but it only covers to 2002 ES300 not 2003. The Lexus dealer confirmed my "oil gel" problem and went to bat for me with Lexus - they got the repair approved - Thank you Mr Local Lexus Dealer! The cost was nearly $4,000 - paid for by Lexus.

My 93 gmc vandura smokes from exaust when engine starts


You're burning oil, I've got the same problem with mine. It's not that big of a problem, just change the oil on time, mine has been doing it for years and there has never been a problem as a result.
