Generally speaking, if the smoke occurs after start up and goes away after the engine warms up, the cause is valve stem seals. If it happens at all times, it is the rings and/or really worn valve guides. If it were to happen at all times and the smoke came from both tailpipes, check the draft tube. Out of now where years ago, I suddenly started smoking from both tailpipes. I thought my drag racing had caught up with me. An old timer told me to check the draft tube and lo and behold, there was a rock lodged in it. Of course, you can run compression tests to get more detailed feedback, but this is the tried and true method I've used over the years. Hope this helps. Herman
