Your piston rings are letting a bit of oil get into the top end. No big worry or concern. As time goes by the smoke may increase or it may not. If it gets offensive then you will need new rings, Possibly a new piston and possibly have the cylinder bored out, ( some cylinders can not be bored ). Just check the oil and keep it at the proper level. Change oil three to four times a year. Not changing the oil is probably what has caused the problem. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.

Power windows, dome lights, sunroof don't work in 05 mercury montego(passenger side mirror started to smoke when I released the trunk from key fob engine off)

Your fuse most likely popped. The smoke in your mirror is probably a short. The wires to the mirrors light are very thin. They do tend to break and cause a short. Check the wires before replacing the fuse, it may cause a fire.

My Cherokee has developed a rattle with a small amount of smoke from the top rear of the engine, oil ok and no warning lights what could be the problem Thanks Jon

no year, 1987?
no engine stated, "displacement"
sounds like (im blind and guess wrong every time, as net bunny)
liKE PCV valve is packed up, not serviced per book.

my old 1988 , sold long ago, many since.
the lines there are cheap plastic, gray,/back thin wall , loves to crack old, plastic,. (my 88 had no PCV, it had only and ORIFICE port due to 4.0L super smooth blowby, inline 6. nice.)
if the PCV pipe cracks, it will smoke. (blowby that is and is a smog device)
why not just look a it and see what EXACTLY smokes
an object,
or photo it smoking
or go to any shop and ask them to look for you.
like 99% do now.

Will only stay running on revs over 2000rpm if I take foot of peddle it cuts out also white smoke from exhaust

What is year--make--model?
Are you losing coolant? The white smoke may be coolant in the combustion cylinder, possibly caused by a head gasket problem. If head gasket problem, fix that first.

With idle issues, clean/check anything that has to do with idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes?

Blowing blue smoke

Hi can you tell me make and model. Does the car blow blue smoke all the time and other than smoke any other symptons? poor starting , power loss etc.
I had a similar problem on a golf gti after servicing drove very well but smoked on start up, and found to be the high grade fully synthetic oil recommended by the factors was simply too thin, and thus giving me by pass on worn valve seals and pistons on older engine sometimes a thicker grade oil is better.
