Hello,
I own a 1991 Toyota Celica gt. It has just over 100,000km(60,000miles)
Every morning, or every time my car sits for a while, when I start it up i get lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. Now, I am pretty sure that it is white smoke. Although, sometimes it really looks blue to me, so its confusing. Anyways I know that white = coolant, blue = oil. So if it is white smoke what does this mean? blown head gasket? something is leeking into my cylinders when the car is just sitting there. I never get any smoke, i dont think, while driving the car. So when it sits for 8 hours while im at work i get a little puff of smoke, but when it sits over night for 12+ hours i get a huge puff of smoke.
Anyone else have this problem???
hope someone can help.
Thank you for your time.

If its coolant, its head gasket. Oil could be piston seal, valve seat and head gasket. Smoking when cold only is piston seal. Rebuild the engine with new head gasket and piston seal.
