I have a toyota camry 2003 if i let it set for a


What color is the smoke ?
Greyish means coolant is leaking into cylinders( Bad Head gasket)
Bluish means oil is leaking into the cylinders
Black means car is running rich.
If greyish look at coolant resivoir for traces of oil ( usually milky kind of substance) could be tranny fluid or motor oil mixing with coolant depending on whether the vehicle is an automatic and if so is the ATF cooler leaking.
keep me posted Good Luck

Morning White Smoke At Start-up (2003 4cyl Camry)


This problem is common but often over looked. Moisture vapor is a grayish white color but it dissipates very quickly. Smoke that is grayish white is caused specifically from burning oil. The problem you have is a small seal called a valve seal. It is very common in cars that sit a fair amount of the time. The seal gradually starts to leak and allow tiny drops of oil to drip into the combustion chamber. When the engine is started then it smokes until the oil is burned. Due to the amount of time that your car smokes after start tells me that the leak is very small. That is why there is no oil consumption. This is not going to harm the car unless it becomes very bad and then the only thing that would happen is more smoke and fouled plugs. You can start using a heavier weight oil and add an oil treatment to the oil when you have it changed. This may evin stop it all together. Hope this answered your question. Please rate this solution if you think it has helped. Good luck and thanks cj2176.

My 96 toyota camry smokes when i start it .


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.
