    What color is the smoke? White=coolent, Blue=Oil, Black=fuel, as a rule. If it just blows blue smoke on start up, and for a little while later, most likley it is valves, uick fix with umbrella seals, I don't suggest them cause it is only a temp fix. That's my take, most of these folks have a lot more exprience than me, so wait and see if you get more replys.

    Did this just start recently? If it is white smoke, it is definately coolant. The smoke is coming out the exhaust, right? If so, you are getting coolant in the combustion chamber, which equates to a blown head gasket, or a cracked head. Hope this helps.

    quit looking at it as a big job and look at it as a learning experiance.
    If you do it yourself it's not expensive really. probably do the whole job for just for around $100 in parts. Blown head gasket is real obvious once the head is off. If you don't spot where it's blown then start looking at a cracked head. They cylinder/cylinders where the coolant is getting in will be cleaner than the rest.
