See, try to as a question from the most knowledgeable people in reference to your engine and motor oil. This is what I get.. Maybe I should go back to the trolling post.

Every car I have ever owned tend to have some amount of smoke for the above reasons. Some have a bit of smoke if you pull the dipstick while the engine is hot.

More info would always be nice like kind of vehicle, engine, did you just shut it off when you did this. I would say some blowby smoke.

Is this that guy that was saying he was on the board of director's at Yale and who personally had to approve every Ph.D. because he has so many but couldn't be bothered to spell because that is beneath him? Funny how such a smart person would make a post with 10 or so straight censored words. That does take intelligence.

I almost asked "what do I win?". This thread is degrading.
