PCV Most likely, there was a recall or TSB about that on the 90 or so loyales, but I have found it applies to a lot of different EA82 cars

do a search for it. A lot of people have this same problem and its been gone over many many many times before. I know there's a few people that have a homemade remedy for it but I can't remember who off the top of my head.

There is also a campaign from Subaru. It requires changing a hose or two and adding a piece between the hoses.

blue smoke is oil burning
white smoke is generally water being burned
black smoke is generally running way to rich on fuel

Oil vapors also come out as white smoke, although not as thick as water burning white smoke. When Turbo seals go out, the oil gets into the hot exhaust gases and it vaporizes, but does not burn, and comes out as white smoke. :-) Figured that one out myself.....
