Q: white smoke on 2005 Scion xA

after my car has been sitting a while- overnight- when I first start it there is a small puff of white smoke from the exhaust- not always but about every 2-3 days or so. hubby just checked/ filled the oil last week. Could he have put too much oil in?

no, white smoke is burning coolant. it could be a head gasket but have a shop check it for you to confirm. it could be a result of overheating.
