My supras been sitting for about half a month and i start it up about once a week. This time (maybe other times wans't really paying attention) It was smoking white smoke as i held it at 3k, then at idle there was smoke and then it calmed down. This was with the temp guage warmed up. Then i went down the street 2 times with short boosting in first, then once it idled it stopped.

*edit* this is from the exhaust

I'm not sure if this is BHG or normal,
Thanks

temp outside was warm.. t shirt weather i guess. I have the cat on the stock
downpipe.

I know my valve cover is leaking... how would that affect it.

When i changed my oil last, i didn't see any coolant,
As far as "cloudy" or "Milky" coolant, i'm pretty sure the coolant is good. I'm not sure how much "milky" is. It's green but not clear like in the bottle. And it's not easy to see in the overflow either

It's very possible that it's just humidity that built up over the night/day. Happened to me one time a few weeks after I finished my metal headgasket install and it freaked me out.. All was well for me though, good luck man :)

also are the supra's valves mechanical or hydraulic. I have a slight tick and i'm told you can adjust it depending on what you have.

It is most likely just from condensation. My car does it every morning and goes away once my exhaust is warmend up and I am also not running any cats. When it does it constantly then start to worry.

condesation and BHG smokw look the same for the the first few minutes until the car warms up. when my HG went i smoked out the entire intersection when i left the light(not fast) GH smoke (Steam) is usually very [email protected] thick VS. normal condensation.
the valves are shim-type(or tappet depending on where you're from)
also..my oils and coolant did not mix when the HG blew(popped on #6 in the back of the cyl where the coolant ppport os.
