I apologize for my rude and uncalled for response. At the point of typing this thread I was scarred *****less. Never the less uncalled for.

Back on topic, smoke smells like oil or possibly something else burning. ive never smelled coolant before so not sure what it smells like lol. It only does this at start up and idles longer than 20+ seconds.

I did recently change the oil and I recall filling it with about 5.4 quarts...i used the thing i bought from walmart and just dumped it all in.

I checked my coolant and it is right on the "low" line which is weird because I only have 33000 miles on my car.

I also took off the oil cap when the car was idling and warmed up and it was perfectly normal, there was no smoke coming from it or anything abnormal for that matter. I took a go pro video of what happened and will get it up tonight after work.
