when will it smoke ?

how much smoke ?

how long have you owed this car ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
smokes all the time very noticeable since 2003
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

if there is smoke out the tail pipe all the time it has to be oil or coolant getting into a cylinder or two causing this issue

usually ends up being a head gasket if its coolant or valve seals or rings for oil

have the plugs been removed yet to see what color they are ?
