Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. I am a Toyota master tech of over 45 yrs and can help you pinpoint and give you the best direction to take . First we have to determine if it is in fact the seals or rings or both causing this. Is there any external leaks as well? put a clean sheet of paper or carboard under the engine after you park it from a trip. Let me know what you see. how many miles are on this vehicle and is it a 4 or 6 cylinder engine.

I will be back latter tonight to review your notes and start accessing what to do.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 7 months ago.

Thanx for that info, IS THIS A 4 OR 6 CYLINDER ENGINE?

Do you notice the smoke coming out of the tail pipe more on acceleration or deceleration OR WHEN YOU LET YOUR FOOT OFF THE GAS./
