Question about 2002 Lexus ES 300

I have a 1994 Lexus ES300 that emits a little bit of smoke when started when it is cold and also emits a oil or rubber smell through the air vents when it is warming up. The mileage is 92500. Can anyone offer a possible solution for this problem?

Hi!
This is possibly due to Crankcase compression, worn piston rings allowing gasses into crankcases forcing a haze of oil out of the breather pipe which is usually located on the air filter or manifold.
You can remove this and relocate it away from the engine, remember to try and filter the gasses.

1992 es300 blue smoke from exhaust


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. So best bet is to have a local repair shop inspect for internal oil leakage.

White smoke comes out from front hood of car and little bit rubber smell.


your accessory belts are slipping and burning, producing smoke. Get them checked right away before they brake and your alternator does not charge the batt. When this happens you will eventually be stranded.

Volvo 850 smoke coming from exhaust manifold


Not to worry. Run the engine up to operating temp before jumping to conclusions and let the heat burn off any excess oil. A leaf will not do any damage.Do not let the engine overheat while idling and if the oil light comes on switch off immediately.
The smoke from the exhaust is oil deposited by oily assembly hands just burning off. It should dissipate after about 15 minutes at most.(or 5 miles' drive)

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.

Valve stem seals can cause this problem, but normally only when first started. Oil in the rocker cover seaps through the oil seals into the cylinders and is burnt up on start up.
Try a "STOP A LEAK" additive and it may reduce the oil consumption and smoke.
I found some on e-bay and it worked on my tired old escort. It even stopped the rattling tappets.

Alot ofwhite smoke coming from tail pipe


Have you overheated or are loosing coolant? If not check to see if your transmission has a vacuum hose going to it. (if coolant you can smell it in the exhaust)
I don't think you have the trans hook up but can't remember.

'92 Lexus Es 300 - White smoke from exhaust and smells like gas.


It's the ECU. Very common with the early '90s lexus cars. Everyone will say head gasket, but unless your oil is milky white, it's not coolant leaking into the cylinder.
Buy an ECu on ebay for less than $100, it plugs in under the dash, just like a computer printer. Easy fix.
