my car smokes white upon start up.
I was told it is the vavel seals were demage. How much is this? on 2007 Toyota Camry
It is possible the head gasket is leaking, should be loosing coolant as well. Valve seal leakage is fairly common on this engine but usually with high mileage. Try switching to a high mileage oil may help. My 2002 same eng. does the same thing but the cost /time for seal replacement aint worth it and i can do it myself! Wont hurt a thing, unless smoking all the time. Just keep a check on the oil level, mine doesn't use any oil but i change it, about, every 3k miles and use Valvoline Maxlife oil.

agree with both
if it blows white smoke you could have head gasket going
