    NO IS NOT A BIG CLOUD, IF I'M NOT MISTAKING YOU CAN ACTUALLY SMELL THE ANTIFREEZE FROM THAT CLOUD THIS SMOKE SMELLS MORE LIKE OIL BUT I CAN'T THINK IF IS FROM MY VALVES OR PISTON RINGS, THANKS FOR THE COMMENT.

I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS, BUT A WHITISH LIGHT BLUE SMOKE IS NOT YOUR VALVE SEALS....IT IS YOUR PISTON RINGS. IF YOU REV YOUR ENGINE, AND MAKES MORE SMOKE, IT IS DEFINITELY YOUR RINGS.

Smoke coming out of tailpipe


From youe description the problem with this smoke (white/grey smoke) is oil getting into the combustion chambers through worn valve guides or worn piston rings. Worn piston rings can be checked by using compression tests on eash cyclinder.
Worn valve guides require the cyclinder head to be removed to replace valve guides.
Worn piston rings requires a major engine overhaul and in this case it maybe better to get a reconditioned engine.

94' jeep cherokee laredo..white smoke when i'm parked or stopped


Your Jeep is Burning Oil. Do you need a Quart every Now and Then? The only way to fix this is to get the Piston Rings Replaced and is not Cheap. There are a Few Additives on the Market that you can put in the Motor to Minimise the Problem for a While. You need to go to Your Auto Parts Store and see what is available in your Area on these though. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
