Something's hot! lol What does it mean when anything smokes? You could have a leak and it's hittin your headers or anything else hot. you could be burning oil. Plenty of things could be wrong.

Why does your engine smoke when you turn it on?

It smokes because you are running low on headlight fluid or possibly because the Johnson rod is shot. Always an idiot in the crowd. If it only smokes when you first start it, it is the valve seals. When you shut it off the oil that is on the shaft of the valve will run down the valve and into the cylinders. The next time you start the car the oil burns the first time that cylinder fires. If it smokes all the time, it is the rings or other worn internal parts and it is time for replacement or rebuild.
