1999 Toyota 4Runner Question: White smoke out tail pipe

Drain out the excess engine oil. Any oil that makes its way in the exhaust may take a while to burn away. White smoke is a blown head gasket what you are seeing is blueish gray smoke from the tailpipe. You are not over heating or loosing coolant are you?

No, I havn't overheated or lost coolant at all, atleast not before this happened...I will drain oil (as soon as I can locate the oil cap-must be under plate or something)
