Default Lots of exhaust on start 95 Camry 4cyl.

The car is new to me, but used, a 95 Camry 4 cyl.

When I start it up it revs up to about 2000 rpm and make a lot of exhaust
that isn't water vapor. It does this not just the first time I start it up,
but most of the time. After it does this the rpms go down and then I drive
through the cloud of exhaust I just made and go on my way. Suggestions?

Bad valve stem seals you got. Common.
Try some of the high mileage motor oils
on the next change, they swell the seals
so they dont leak as much. There is
probably an additive you can buy to do
this with your existing oil also.
The repair is not cheap...

I'm taking it in on Tuesday. I had the oil changed today and the PCV valve
was all gunked up. Was that related?

Yes. My 1994 had the same problem and a new PCV valve took care of the
startup smoke after I was told by mechanics that the valve stem seals had to
be replaced.

Suggestions?

Search this group for "startup smoke" (without the quotes).
