I asked this question a little while ago and got a few responses....Im still having problems with white smoke coming from the tailpipe..noticed it happened when i stomped on the pedel to accelerate in traffic, and has happened a few times when i start it up.....the coolant level looks ok...the cold level is always the same in the resivior... and the thing never heats up above average, but it still appears to be using oil...just wondering if i need to do the dreaded and take it to a mechanic to see if the head is ok?? ..by the way, i got a suggestion to do a compression test...i was wondering how complex this is and what kind of tools i would need...Im just hoping the damn problem isnt the head!! is there anyway to tell by checking the spark plugs?? thanks for any responses!!
