Asked by Jun 08, 2014 at 09:41 PM about the 2000 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I see white smoke coming out of the tailpipe when I first start my car. I also can smell oil

Probably you got a bad head gasket white smoke is caused by oil and water mixing.

Blue smoke out the tailpipe is oil burning. The burning smell could be oil leaking onto the hot exhaust manifold from bad valve cover gaskets. HTH. -Jim
