Blowing blue smoke out the exhaust but on on the first start of the day.

I twice overhauled the transmission and the valve body , i found 3 burned clutches ,which are : C0 , B1 and B3
but the problem still remaining . the ABS light is ullominated , and P0746 too. i changed the ECM with a used one but the problem was the same.
When pulling out the counter gear speed sensor NC, the car run 2nd , 3th , 4th speeds only .
Is it a transmission or ECM problem .

how do i run car through drive cycle in order to pass emissions test ?

One mechanic told me that it's okay to just replace the seized one as the other is good. Another mechanic told me to replace both front calipers. What should I do?

I noticed check engine light is on in my 2006 toyato camry. Any solutions. thnaks.

I have taken the oil fill cap off of more than five vehicles. On this 2006 vehicle when I remove the oil fill cap smoke or steam just pours out I've never seen this before on any other vehicle and I've been working as a hobby on cars for 45 years. I showed it to the Toyota Service Center here in Chico and they didn't seem to be concerned about it at all I recently went in there because I was getting the check engine light when I hooked up and obd2 code reader this spit out an error code when they checked it there was no error code so who erased it because it wasn't me and I also I pointed out the excessive valve noise. Way too much valve noise and indicated to me that that was normal I'm wondering where I can go to get some honest information so I can take that information back to the Toyota Service Center and politely show them that they weren't being honest with me.

There is no more detail to add. The question says it all. Does Camry have an issue with rack and pinion steering wheel/leakage of oil ? This is horrendous to 'Japanese' zero tolerance policy which I think went out the window ages ago, just as their economy did. Are they poorly designed and make you bleed 1200 dollars at 90 K miles or so ? This is unheard of in Corollas, I think.

Recently my car is making a weird noise when I'm accelerating. To me from the inside it sounds like a truck. Why is this happening?

The owner's manual just says to call a dealership. Car has 216,000 miles and has had no problems other than brakes being replaced. Only thing that doesn't work is the automatic unlock when car is turned off.

The battery light started blinking on and off while car was idling with headlights and heater on. Battery light remains on plus anpther alert light (passenger in seat with huge ball shape in lap, I assumed air bag) and ABS light is on also. Everything was fine before the radio light flashed several times before my eyes. The radio controls (on/off) wouldn't work while light flashed on and off but worked when flashing stopped. Drove 65 mph on highway, headlights remained very dim, the electric window would barely open/close, the dash lights dimmed/lit randomly. I noticed headlights seemed less bright previous 2 nights. Motor mount might need replaced, I was advised to check that out recently.
