I would agree, if the smoke is blue. If it's black, it's just carbon.

How many miles are on it ?

black smoke the first couple times then this weekend on a long drive i got white smoke . i may have found the problem when i decided to take the intake off and the PCV tube was filled with oil and the throttle body was really dirty.

My car now has 15K on it and ive been doing oil changes every 5K. Im doing one today switching to full synthetic and possibly install a oil catch can for the PCV

I definitely would do a catch can in your case. Have you noticed any out-of-the-ordinary oil consumption?

yes after 5k im at the low mark on my dip stick

That's not extreme consumption, but more than I'm experiencing. I lose about 1/4 quart in 5K miles. Take a close look at the PCV. If the oil in there was clogging the system, or even the valve itself, it would cause high consumption.

How did you break in your engine? Did you baby it for xxxx miles?

If so...that is your problem.....you should not be losing that much oil if an engine is properly broken in

White Smoke usually means water.....hows your coolant level?

Also..go outside and check your tail pipe..if its oily...well time to take it in
