It sounds like your valve seals are getting old and are leaking oil into your pistons.As long as it is not using a lot of oil or fouling your spark plugs drive the heck out of it and look the other way when you first crank it up in the morning.
One other problem that will cause this is a cracked head or a leaking head gasket which is getting water on your pistons overnight. Watch for #1 low antifreeze in your radiator #2 higher than normal engine temperatures. This could be a serious problem that could cause expensive damage to your engine if not corrected.

SOURCE: black smoke from exhaust pipe during start up

The black smoke is not a problem, it just means that there is a rich gas mixture in the motor to start the car from cold.

This is normal with a cold engine...

Sometimes there is a seeping of oil from old rocker cover gaskets.

If the oil is not running out in a trickle. Don't worry about it...

Wipe the oil away with a rag and see if it comes back soon.

Check the oil level on the dipstick regularly and you should not have any trouble...

SOURCE: We have a 1996 Toyota Camry that blows blue smoke

Well does it do it when you first start up then goes away? or does it always burn blue smoke? if it does it just when you start it it means you have the possability of having bad valve guide seals, or a bad PCV valve, you can check theat by removing it from the hose and shaking it back and forth it it rattles it may be ok but is cheep enought to fix, also look inside the air cleaner and see if the crank case ventalator is dirty, next would be a top engine clean with GM's Top engine cleaner and to do that I would have to tell you excatly what to do, that costs about 12 dollars but with the fuel the way it is today you could have sticking rings and once it warms up the loosen up and seal, so let me know.

Could the problem of white smoke when start up in morning be that the cold start sensor could be at fault


White smoke is actually normal Susan. It isn't smoke, it is steam.

White is steam
blue is oil
black is rich mixture

Gasoline contains water at molecular level, and when it burns it condenses through the cold exhaust system as steam vapour. You should find it disappears when the engine and exhaust is warm.

Why deos my car everytime i start it especially in the morning have a bkue/white/grey smoke come out of it


Don't worry about the smoke when your car starts it will mostly happen in cold mornings but as car heats up it should be gone its just cause the car has to heat up to a certain tempeture. Hope it helps.

1993 v6 toyota camry burns a quart of oil about every 70 miles at the least. Car smokes black smokes comes out of the exhaust. Car hesitates sometimes like it does not want to go when you mash on the gas....


If its burning oil the smoke will be blue, if its not blue then you have a leak somewhere, put some cardboard under your engine overnight and check it in the morning. if its leaking it might be an easy fix, but that depends on where its leading from. If your burning oil the piston rings need to be replaced, you can do it yourself with some special tools, but its best to leave that to the pros and it won't be cheap.

Exhaust smoke upon cold start up


you don`t say what color the smoke is so this is a basic indicator with different colored smoke.if it is white smoke like you would see from any car started up on a cold day then this is normal for cars as the exhaust is hotter than the ambient air temperature.if it is a thick heavy looking white smoke and has a sweet odour then this can indicate a coolant leak into the combustion chamber after sitting overnight such as a bad head gasket,if it is a blue smoke then this indicates oil leaking into the cylinders past the valve seal or valve guides on a cylinder that is on the intake stroke when the motor was shut off,if it was rings it would show only under acceleration,if it is black smoke this indicates an overly rich fuel mixture.
