Question about 2004 Toyota Camry
Sometimes when I crank up my toyota camry 2004 smoke comes out of the exhaust at times.
If the smoke is black that your car is burning oil when it starts up. When your engine is hot, metal expands, sealing everything perfectly. When you engine is cold, not everything is sealed 100%. Your issue is probably the piston rings not seating right until the engine warms up. This will get worse over the years as continuous daily wear and tear will continue to wear the rings. Have your piston rings replaced. But don't just take my word for it, go to a dealer and have them diagnose it, if they say the same thing, than that's your issue, right on the money. Dealerships are they way to go, because they may give you a list of things that need to be, but they don't make things up.
