smoking after a period of idling indicates that the valve stem seals have failed. Normally it will require a head off job to replace the seals but if you can find an accredited shop with the correct tools and knowledge it can be done without pulling the head/s

Blue smoke after accelerating


this sounds like you rings or valve seals are leaking into the cylinder the smoking for a time is the oil burning off check your oil to see if it's getting low this will confirm if these might be the issues

valve seals are going. when car sits excess oil gets past the valve seals then when you staRT up it burns the oil off then runs fine and no more blue smoke. It is fine to run like that had the same in a dodge caravan 1996 6cyl. ran another 100 000 km. and still ran fine got rid of it for other reasons.

Blue smoke


sorry to say blue smoke is oil and with what you've described sounds like the oil rings on the pistons have given up the ghost, time for a new engine or a rebuild sorry for the bad news. valve stem seals are the only other thing that will cause exhaust smoke but only when you first start the car never while running. hope i have been of some assistance.

2000 Avalon won't start and idle. Only while foot is on the gas


Avalons are prone to the the throttle body and Idle control valve getting gunked up over time. I took mine off, spent about 45 minutes cleaning it well with carb cleaner and q tips, and reinstalled. I haven't had the problem since. It is relatively easy, the hard part is not stripping the screws. Everthing is righ on top of the engine, not a hard repair. Mine did not have the smoke issue, however, it would start but would die as soon as you let off the gas.

Your engine is toast. The black smoke indicates more than likely your valve seals are leaking oil into the combustion chamber or the piston rings are shot.
