Question about 2001 Lexus ES 300
For some unknown reason(s) the Live Session/Chat was disconnected. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
In any case to finish the 2nd suggestion. You may want to discuss this issue (smoke and oil consumption) with your dealer. Cite a Lexus Technical Service Bulletin specifically addressing this issue "Excessive oil consumption caused by sludge buildup on the cylinder heads. Company is extending warranty. (1997-2001)".
You may want to reference this USA Today article or the discussion in this page.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
