Been happening for 2 weeks; about 75% of my cold starts result in a pretty big oil puff, which goes right away as I drive off. Car does not consume oil between changes & I use Mobil 1, chg at 4000 mi. Car has 73K on it. Whatta 'ya think? Seals? Leaky something?

Many Thanks, Tom Daily, Brookline, MA
