Dealer replaced all 16 lifters. Oil in the intake. Apparently an "over aggressive" lifter will build-up pressure that gets vented through the valve cover (similar to the old PCV valve). Oil gets vented into the intake and then into the combustion chambers. Camaro at 650 miles.

I am concerned about long term effects.

white smoke

Hey guys this is my first post. I just got my Camaro on Saturday, and I've had the same issue with my car. The smoke hasn't been as bad as the first time it happened, but it still makes an appearance every once in a while. I took it to the dealer and they told me that they couldn't find anything mechanically wrong with the car. They told me that they just think that the engine is just breaking in. Has this been the case with any of you guys? Did this issue just go away?
