Toyota Camry 2002 - smoke on the start up - 45000mile

I have a toyota Camry 2002 and it is smoking just at the first start after it sits for more than 6 hour. It doesn't look like it looses oil. What could make this problem?

The valve seals could be going bad. You can try a little thicker oil for the time being.(10w-30). But the valve seals should be replaced. If that is what the problem is. The headgasket could also be seaping a little coolant into the cylinder.
What color is the smoke? If the smoke is white, your camry could have a bad head gasket. Blue smoke, valve stem seals.

WHY DOES MY TOYOTA CAMRY SMOKE WHEN YOU FIRST START IT AND ANY TIME IT SITS FOR 6 OR 7 HOURS AND START IT AGAIN


It means you could have a trickle coolant leak into a cylinder or cylinders somewhere if its white smoke. When the vehicle sits the accumulated coolant has to be burnt off when started and it smokes. During driving the leak at the moment is probably not big enough to be noticeable when its being burnt off by the engine. If its initially blueish\grayish smoke, then your rings are wearing

Smoke from tail pipe when car is firsted started, after sitting awhile.


usually caused by worn valve guides. This is not a serious problem unless you are getting a lot of oil on your spark plugs. check the plugs and consider replacing valve guides if oil begins to foul plugs.

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.
