Re: Oil in my exhaust

At 440 hrs not likely to be injectors and the symptoms don't fit.

Oil smoke will appear blue. injector problems generate black smoke while running.

White smoke is usually associated with water vapour in the exhaust on cool days.

If the engine starts easily, does not use much oil and produces the usual power with out overheating I would stop worrying.
