Burning valve stem oil?

2000 v6 5spd trd...75k.....

seems every time i go to start my smoke rolls out the tail pipe for about 30 sec. to a min. it has been happening for about 2 weeks now. ever since i ran engine flush and changed oil. but once it is done that is it. until i start it again.

someone mentioned to me that it may be oil sitting on top of the valve stems and that is what is burning off every time i start. he said it did it on his old gm crap forever and didn't worry about it. well i bought a yota b/c it's not gm.

I have been hearing good things about sea foam. i thought i would try that next....any other ideas?

Replace the valve guide seals and change the oil more often so it doesn't happen again.
