Oil valve?? i dont think so thats like saying the foo foo valve what you need is a new engine because yours is high mileage by the sound of it .Yes yours can be overhauled but its cheaper to buy one from an accident damaged vehicle with a low mileage and change it

OK my 95 Chevy 1500 2wd 4.3 manual transmission, seems to have a little loss of power it smokes a little out the tail pipe and every time I give it a lot of gas the oil pressure goes down will bottom out...

Yes, it could be connected. If you run an engine with straight pipes, there will be no back pressure from the exhaust system, and the gas flows very fast out of the engine past the exhaust valves. This will cause the valves to heat up more than the manufacturer's spec and could burn the valves.
This in turn will cause loss of power. Overheated valves will cause the valve stem seals to harden and even to disintegrate, causing slight smoking from the tailpipe.
The oil pressure is a sticky toffee. If you have enough oil in the engine, you should have equal pressure at either low or high speed, unless you have a dicey oil pump, or oil level is low, causing the pump to lower the level in the sump or cavitating (sucking in air with the oil).

Oil is going through intake and burning

Cheapest "possible" fix would be your PCV valve! That's the cheapest, Which is why stated first.
Could be your turbo oil seal also, (That is, IF your car is turboed!)

I recently purchased a 2002 camry XLE and white smoke comes out of the tailpipe when I start the car in the morning. What causes this?

This is a common problem on Camrys. It happens because the valve stem seals are starting to go bad. As the car sits overnight, oil leaks down through the seals into the combustion chamber. The oil in the chamber burns off when you start the car, causing the temporary smoke out the tailpipe.

Two options for repair: Either replace the entire head, or remove the head and replace the valve stem seals. The cost comes out about the same. Depending on who does the work and where you source the parts, it could range from $800-$1,000 on the low end to over $2,000.

Camrys of that model year are also prone to the oil "sludging" problem, which may or may not be related to the valve stem seal problem. Look under the valve cover, If you see heavy deposits of carbon/sludge on the rocker arms, you might think twice before spending a lot of money on this car.

If this solution is helpful, please give feedback. Thank you.

Excessive oil consumption

the only two ways that an internal combustion engine would be burning the oil would be through the valve seals or piston rings. since your loosing oil at a very fast rate i would put my money on the rings. but if you want to save some time and money, take off the valve covers (new gaskets are cheap) and look through the valve springs with a droplight to see if there are any tears in the valve seals. if there are other engine components in the way of your valve covers i would recommend taking it to a professional if your not very firmilliar with engines. note your valve cover gasket could be leaking onto your exaust manifold and then burning off. so inspect that before cleaning it off of your cylendar heads. check your coolant for a white foamy milky type substance (this will indicate an internal oil leak into your coolant system) and the last thing i can think of since you do not see blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe is to note any smell of burning oil. this will indicate that oil is escaping your engine somewhere then burning off on a hot surface without smoke and without leaving oil patches.

Hope this helps!

V6 XLE using oil huge white smoke cloud on cold start but not on hot start.

You have what is known as a valve guide or valve guide seal problem. as the car sits, the residual oil in the valve cover is seeping into the cylinders through a faulty seal or excessive clearance of the valve guides and is now sitting on top of the pistons, so when you start the car. it burns and goes out the tailpipe. Id recommend you take your car to a certified engine repair facility to have it checked for repair. "Valve guide seal" replacement can be done without too much headache . If the "valve guides" need to be replaced, then the cylinder head/heads must be removed. and this is a lot more costly.

OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.
