Educate me. I had smoke on cold starts from oil going past the rings into the combustion chamber, then when I'd start it would all burn off and fill whatever area I was parked in with white smoke. Car drove pretty normal to me, and when it finally got really bad i had tests done and number 4 was gone. Where else would that white smoke come from? I know I gave a new motor now and the issue is gone. I also had my vf52 bearing fail as well so maybe oil was coming through there as well? All I know is it wasn't a easy fix either way. I worry when huge puffs of white smoke come out of any of my vehicles.
I'm not saying your wrong, I just want to learn more about what happened to my car.
