I check my oil for the heck of it every month or so... today i checked the oil and the level and color look fine but I saw a little smoke, nothing thick at all barely noticeable but i did see a little. then I opened the cap and there was a little as well....is this normal for cars after theyve been running????

The smoke is called blowby, it's perfectly normal, and it means the engine runs. Did anybody ever tell you you're a worry wart?
noone has to tell me, I know i am!!

thanks for the input, i didnt think it was anything to worry about but i just wanted to make sure.. i definetely trust your input more than the guy who said my engine is on fire....I guess b/c smoke comes out of an exhaust thats on fire too??? some people....

Thanks Koz...

Under normal operation a small part of the combustion products gets by the piston rings. This is normally handled by the crankcase ventilation system(PCV).
