1990 Honda Accord Question: Is white smoke coming out of the muffler a symptom of a bad valve cover gasket?

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?

    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.
