Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
Changed engine oil, and start the engine
As you have no doubt learned by now, the only way fuel can get into the oil is via the injectors (carb?) and for that to happen a stuck injector had to be pouring gas into the intake, where it bypassed the rings and joined oil in the sump.
That's a lot of gas! Car must have been running horribly. If the gas was in the sump long enough to thoroughly dilute the oil, you may also have bearing damage from inadequate lubrication.
First, fix the source of the gas, then carefully check for oil pressure.
No easy fix, in that case??.
all the best.

You don't state which fluids were changed. Exactly which were changed? Also are you sure that what was changed was exactly refilled?

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.

SOURCE: my Toyota hi ace engine
This is usually a sign of a bad head gasket. coolant is entering the cylinder(s) and is being burnt off as steam. coolant is also mixing with the engine oil. The color of the engine oil would be that of coffee with lots of cream if the head gasket is blown. The radiator would also be low on coolant.
