Default Smoke from exhaust???

I noticed a little bit of grey smoke coming out of my exhaust pipes when the car accelerates. I also noticed it when I sit at a light for a while or im in traffic, but its usually a little bit more. enough to see while im driving????

Grey smoke is typically burning oil. If you get it when accelerating it you may have worn piston rings. This is normal with high mileage.

How many miles are on your car ?

Are you losing oil ?

When I still had a two valve in my car I had the same simptoms, ended up being valve seals.

I have just over 96,000 miles and I lose a little oil I think, but when I bring it to get serviced they never say anything about it being low.

Valve Seals definatly mine went out on my 96 cost me about a grand but I also did a head swap at the same time. IF your wanting to put cams in I would do it at the same time youll be right there.
