Default oil smoke from exhaust when heats up when ACCELERATED ONLY,??

this smoke started friday after i used a can of mopar combustion chamber cleaner from the dealer, it only smokes when i stop & go at a light or idles for a few then given gas, does not smoke at all driving or idling with out being accelerated, took it to the shop today, it has good compression, plugs were clean, removed pass side valve cover, inside was very clean, no sludge at all, they told me it seems like valve guide seals, but it does not smoke at start up in the morning like you would think w/bad seals, and the truck needs heating up first, did something happen when i used that mopar cleaner,?? ( please help ),

it does sound like valve guide seals, or worn guides, when you used the cleaner you might have dislodge somthing that was sealing that leak, try some motor honey or try high milage castrol. also is the smoke white or blue?

it looks more bluish, but again it does not smoke in the morning, only after it heats up & after you stop at a red light and accelerate does it puff a little smoke, also accelerating after idling,??

How did you use the can of combustion chamber cleaner? Add to fuel? Dump down intake? If you added it to the fuel, burn the whole tank of fuel and then see if it still smokes with a fresh tank and no cleaner.

Default cleaner & compression,!!

it was the can that you spray into the throttle body, NOW ABOUT THE COMPRESSION I WAS TOLD WAS GOOD, i showed the receipt to the dodge dealer today & seen what the COMPRESSION WAS BETWEEN 89psi TO 93psi they told me it was way off, it should be more like 180 to 190psi, somone did not know what they were doing, they also told me that if my COMPRESSION WAS REALLY THAT LOW IN ALL EIGHT CYL THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE ENOUGH POWER TOO DRIVE MY TRUCK ( IS THIS TRUE )
