Most likely it's leaking due to a clogged Crankcase Breather Box. It creates high crankcase pressure that forces oil past the camcover gaskets. The oil settles on the exhaust manifold heat shield and smolders producing smoke.
Hey all, thanks for the words. I'm trying to find out the area it seems to be coming from but no definite luck yet. The smoke smells like a burning something to me, and it fills the garage and will stay cloudy in there for hours after shutting off. So I don't think it's condensation thanks tho.
Hey, I have a 98 with about 47,000 miles. Noticed in the last month that it appears that the valve covers are leaking on both sides. This allows oil to seep down on the exhaust heat shields and smoke. It is especially noticable after driving at highway speeds and then bringing the car into the garage. Smells like something burning. I'm now researching how difficult it is to replace value cover gaskets. This may be your problem?
