Hope someone can help me on this :(

Well, the car would smoke for about 2-3 seconds upon "cold start" then nothing. It seems to come from the buring of oil. It was not like this before. The smoke is not that bad but it's something I can clear see even from the rear view mirror. There is nothing during "warm start" however.

Nothing else has been changed except an "Induction Cleaning" done by a Ford dealer a week ago. I checked the compression and spark plug for sign of problem, no luck.

Anyone have the same problem or know what's the problem?

What you are seeing isn't that uncommon on the DOHC motors. Typically it happens if you start the car for a few seconds, let it sit and then restart hours later. Two of my three DOHC motors have doen this from time to time.

Thanks guys

Yeah, it's some white smoke. I guess this is normal. It's just that the "cloud" was not this big before.
