Lexus 1997. Thick smoke is coming out of muffler, Just got a Oil change which was overdue by a few 100 miles. Car is now Letting off more smoke then before on a daily bases. I believe my pistons/rings need to be changed. Although I am not sure if this may lead to or is a head Gasket issue? Car is showing minor issues engine wise when driving but is showing some signs of sluggishness. mainly power steering issues. I have to refill power steering fluid everyday. im unaware of what the issue may be
