Question about Nissan Maxima
I would keep an eye closely on the oil and coolant. You want to make sure the coolant is not getting into the combution chamber. (Due to a bad head gasket or a crack) Normally white smoke is due to coolant mixed with oil, but...some moisture will look white for a couple seconds when cold. So... keep a good eye on fluids, and if you see a level going down, get it checked out.

Typically what you're describing is from bad valve guide seals. Oil collects on the seal and drips thru to the cylinder. Its not a big deal, just keep an eye on your oil level...I just noticed that your post was from years ago, so you probably don't even have the car anymore, but maybe it will help someone else some day(:
