Severe white smoke when revving up Sign In

I have a 2009 Toyota yaris I recently did and oil change and I took it for a drive after and and huge clouds of white smoke came out of the exhaust. I noticed that I had over filled the oil so I went home drained it and re added but it's still happen if I'm worried I messed up bad any insights on where I go from here?

Usually oil smoke is blueish-white. Does the smoke smell oily? If you did overfill the engine to the point the oil was getting into the combustion chambers it should eventually burn off. How many quarts did you put into the engine initially.

What does the smoke smell like? Does it smell oily, smells like burning coolant, or smells gassy and burns your eyes?

It smells oily but there's also a harsher smell I can't identify my last attempt the car started sputtering to the point of almost stalling might be back pressure in the exhaust from the amount of smoke

Can you pull some spark plugs out and see if they are oil fouled?

I don't have a spark plug wrench I'm a little stretched for tools since I'm not at home

If you don't have any tools you will have to resort to a credit card instead.

I would check the coolant level in the radiator just to make sure you are OK there.
