Customer Question

I have changed the valve gasket cover and sometime it will have a lot of white smoke coming out from under the hood and sometimes it does not. Do I need to degrease where the oil was leaking or could something else be wrong.
JA: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?
Customer: I replaced the gasket, but not the hoses.
JA: What is the model/year of your BMW?
