Automotive shops sell this stuff called honey. Its super thick oil that might slow down the leak. If the leak is coming from your oil pan try tightening the 10 or twelve small bolts around the oil pan. only go a half a turn on each so you dont smash your gasket or seal.

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.

2002 toyota 4 cyl camry, 112000 miles on odo, emits blue smoke only on start up, uses no oil. Fix?


I would not bother. Usually this is valve guides/seals wearing out, but if that is the only problem, I would not worry about it. When it sits, the oil in the rocker arm area is leaking down into the cylinders, then when you start it, it burns off.
I would not do anything until you start using a fair bit of oil, or something breaks.

Smoke from under car


If you had the oil leak repaired, you can do nothing and the smoke will eventually stop. You do run a small risk of fire, but if it has not caught fire yet, chances of that are small.

If you go to a quarter car was, maybe you can get under the car with the wand with engine cleaner first then hot soapy water and blow out the rest of the oil residue in the area of the Cat Converter

Good luck

Couds of grayish smoke when starting


If it's the org. engine it will has over 200,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has the valve steam seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.

It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
