White smoke at start up.
I'm getting a white plume of smoke as soon as I start my car. EVERY time I start it.

Any ideas?

78 Caddy DeVille with a BB 425.

Valve seals need to be replaced.

white smoke = coolant/antifreeze,,,head gasket, intake gasket, cracked head checked you coolant level lately?

Coolant was low this morning, and I have been having overheating issues now and then.

Hopefully just a head gasket. Do a compression test too.
