Hello Scotty

I just bought a used Toyota car with a 3GR-FSE engine and the engine ran great, but I just changed the engine oil for the first time with the recommended 10w-30. The car now smokes a lot out of the exhaust, but only when giving it a lot of gas. When the car is idling or when you drive normally it does not smoke at all.

What can it be? I do not know if the previous owner used a thicker engine oil like 10w-40 or even if they added something like bardahl no smoke to it.

Your advise is highly appreciated

What about the " no smoke fuel additive " like bardahl. How can I inspect a used car when this has been added? As I said before this car did not have any smoke coming out the exhaust when I bought it. It only started when I changed the oil

White with a little blue. When I went to inspect the car before buying it, it had absolutely NO smoke coming out of the exhaust, dipstick or engine oil fill cap.

A few people suggested that the previous owner might have used something like bardahl no smoke treatment to stop it from smoking, which might explain why it started smoking after I changed the oil.

Could that be? And for the future how do you inspect a used car to see if something like bardahl has been used? I am very curious
