I had the valve cover gasket replaced due to an oil leak but I'm still getting white smoke coming out of my muffler. I was told that the white smoke would continue to come out of my muffler for a while due to the oil that leaked out. Is that true or could it be another problem?
Is white smoke coming out of the muffler a symptom of a bad valve cover gasket? on 1990 Honda Accord

Give it some time and see if it goes away. Otherwise, it could be a head gasket. Check and monitor your coolant level to be sure you aren't losing coolant as well.
