I have a 1992 toyota camry that the oil and oil filter were just changed but now every so often after driving for a good 10 minutes a good amount of white smoke comes out and my oil pressure light comes on when im at a stop light or idleing...any idea as to what is going on?
Seems to me someone needs to check the engine oil level. If the oil level is not reading correctly....take the vehicle back to the folks who did the service. If the oil level is at the correct level....inspect the oil on the dip stick. Does it smell like gas? Does it appear to have a whitish foaming look? Check the coolant level in the overflow jug. Are you low on coolant?
Don't trust the oil change shops. Check the oil level before you drive it anymore. If it is really low you need to have it towed to a reputable shop for investigation and documentation of any engine damage. The oil change shop could be on the hook for a new engine .
It appears to have too much oil in it. I wouldnt say it smelled like gas but something similar. The coolant is fine as well.
Too much oil can also cause problems due to foaming of the oil. I would call the shop that did the work to see how they want to handle the problem.
I agree with F_O_R.
Shelby...did you ever resolve the issue with this vehicle?
