I would say your head gaskets gone, you'll need a compresion test done to confirm it.

Could be several things.
If the head gasket is blown, you may have lost compression in the cylinders. You may have also damaged the spark plugs with coolant.

I have a 95 ls400 lexus when I start the car white smoke cloud then for about 3 to 5min after. No smoke! no smoke when on gas or on stop no overheat rides fine


Is the engine running bad or "misfiring" when it is doing this? It sounds like the beginning of a serious head gasket problem. Or it could just be time for some valve seals. Is the check engine light coming on? I would recommend having it checked by an experienced auto repair technician to avoid possible severe engine damage.

Blown Lexus ls400 engine


Smoke is a sign of engine burning oil, which is caused by faulty piston rings, in most cases it's cheaper to have another engine installed in the car, instead of having work done on pistons. Hope this helps and please rate the answer if it was helpful, it helps me, thanks! P.S. Comment if you need more advice, it'll be my pleasure to assist you.
