    Poof of white smoke 2013 wrx

    I just got my first oil change (2600 miles). Since then any time I turn the car on after sitting for awhile there is a poof of white smoke. This has happend 3-4 times over the last week. This car is a dd and I gently drive maybe 6-20 miles per day. Should I be concerned and should I call the dealer?

    It's a pretty good poof but suppose its possible the last time I it happend it was 96 degrees outside. But you seem to know your stuff so I will give it some time and see.

    I have the same problem. here is my video

    I jsut had an oil change done at my local Subaru dealership and think I found the problem Here is a pic of my dipstick. It's an inch over the full line!!!



    I have a feeling it's blowby and some excess oil burning off. I'll be stopping by the subaru dealership tomorrow to hopefully have them put the right amount in this time.

    Just a little bit over filled on these motors makes them give a little poof on start up until it's burned off, I've noticed almost every oil change that I get a poof on the first start up.
