If it is a 3.0 engine, you need valve guide seals.

BLACK SMOKE AND MY TAIL PIPE IT IS MIXED WITH OIL


If you are adding oil to the engine I would say the rings or valve guides are worn out. Could also be a problem with the PCV valve.
Black smoke is usually too much fuel, blue smoke is usually burning oil.

When engines are cold you can see water vapor as "white smoke" coming out of the tail pipe. If an automatic ... you may be burning some ATF.

Constant smoke from tail pipe.


If its smoking that bad you should be able to tell if its oil or antifreeze by the smell, stand behind the car as its running, if its white and you smell a sweet smell its antifreeze if its blue and smells like a oil refinery its oil.

White smoke coming out of the tail pipe after taking off.


White smoke continuously blowing out from the tail pipe ? If it is only at the cold position it is normal, if it is always coming out it means oil consumed & compression is week. spark plug frequently needed ? If plug frequently shorted u need to overhaul or need to add oil treatment for increase viscosity.

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.

1991 toyota supra blue smoke from tail pipe when get of the gas


The intake valve guide seals are worn and are letting oil slip by under high engine vacuum--as when you let up on the gas. The only fix is to take the cylinder head off and replace the valve guide seals. This problem is pretty normal for an older car with high mileage. It will probably run just fine. Just keep checking the oil level and keep it topped up.
