Default help! white smoke!! please!

Took my car to the dealer to get an oil change. And When I drove it out white smoke started comming out of the exhaust! I took it back and they checked the level of the oil and they told me they over filled by a bit. The dealer drained a little out and said that when you over fill it gets up into the valved or something like that. THey said just to let it burn off. But now i have driven all day and there is still white smoke comming from the exhaust! Can it be something else? The car seems to be running fine, no engine light or anything. But still looks like I seafoamed my car!!

You pay for service by the "experts", and wadda you get, a problem anyway.

Rather than pay an expert Klutz to do the simple jobs, I do it myself. I've done about 34 on my wrx so far.

Hm, burning oil is usually blue smoke. White = coolant/water. I hope it's not a headgasket :/
