I have a 1995 Tacoma XtraCab 4x4 automatic transmission with 227,500 miles. When I start the vehicle it tries to die, I then give it gas and it gets to it's regular sound/revving. However, for approximately 20-30 seconds white smoke comes out of the exhaust pipe. The interior of the cab smells of gas/oil when this happens. The more I hit the gas during this timeframe, the more smoke comes out.
I have asked a few maintenance guys where I work what they think this is and they have lead me to believe it's the "Valve Guide Seals" that are leaking. They think it's allowing a small amount of oil that's being burned off each time I start it.
Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone else think that's my problem?
Thanks for your help!
