Without seeing it, I would think it is the valve cover gasket leaking and dripping on the hot exhaust manifold which causes it to smoke. Get it repaired. Well the oil needs changed badly and how much would you think that would be if it was the vavle cover gasket to be repaired? it could also be your pcv valve not openeing up and the smoke will come out of ur dipstick i have the same prob with my third gen t/a im pretty sure i found ware its comin from it looks like its ware the actual dipstick tube is mines cracked at the base cause be yours is 2 ive heard its somewhat common
