Oil smoke.coming from both sides of engine

Check your rocker cover gaskets for any signs of oil leaks. Oil leaking from your engine can contact the exhaust headers, or other hot parts of the engine and can burn, resulting in smoking and a burning smell.

I have a Mitsubishi IO 1998. After moving slowly for a while (40mins) in traffic, the car exhaust smokes (blue smoke). When I get out of heavy traffic and drive fast, the smoke goes away completely an

sound to me like it may need the head gasket replacing, check for the following, oil in the coolant, coolant in the oil, leaks of oil from the head, not the rocker cover, check your spark plugs for oil, if it is not the head it could be oil contamination in the cylinders above the pistons. hope this helps

Smoke comin from top rocker cover smell like burnin oil

Could the smoke be coming from the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine? When the valve cover starts to leak, it is common for the oil to leak down and burn on the outside of the exhaust manifold.
Replacing a valve cover gasket is not difficult or expensive, and it is common for BMW valve cover gaskets to get brittle and shrink and start leaking every 10 years or so. My wife's 330 needed a new valve cover gasket at 6 years.

I am having a smoke blow back through the vaulve cover

Check the PCV and pcv vacuum hose is clear, and is indeed sucking when the engine is runningShould be a plastic adapter in the rocker cover in your model.

If this is clear, and vacuum applied while engine running, then the smoke is likely to be caused by compression ring wear, allows combustion gases to push past piston and burn in the sump.

Worth trying a smoke stop oil additive to see if that reduces smoke output.

I have a 2006 Suburban 5.3 litre with 55,000 miles. i just recently experienced smoke coming out from under the hood. I looked and noticed the smoke appeared to be coming from vlave cover gasket area on...

Try tightening your rocker arm covers. Also called valve covers. The little bolts get loose and oil seeps down the side and drips on the exhaust manifold. This gives off smoke.

Engine smokes on starting then quits smoking on acceleration.

4.3 liter and or any of the V-8's the valve seals , little rubber rings get old and brittle and no longer do the job.
what happens when you shut the engine off the oil from the rocker arms flow down the valve stem and collects then when you go and start the car you get a little shot of motor oil into the combustion chamber, hence a little blue smoke for 20 -30 seconds something most of us live with as its more of a pain to fix than it is to live with.

Engine smokes blue white right side only

I'm going to guess it's a blocked oil return in the head under the valve cover. If it fills up the rocker cover, the valve seals can't handle that much oil and it gets into the combustion system. Try looking through an opening, oil cap, PCV valve opening to see if a lot of oil is pooling up.

Otherwise, it could be the PCV valve if causing pressure in the rocker cover. Or valve stem seals if it's worse on acceleration after coasting down. Good luck
