  1. Have you checked your spark plug tubes for oil? Sometimes the gaskets keeping oil from getting into the tubes will crack and then overfill. Right beneath the tubes are your exhaust pipes. You may be leaking oil from the tubes out and onto the pipes (resulting in your smoke scenario). Regardless, it probably wouldn't hurt for you to remove your intake manifold so that you could look on the backside of your valve cover for any leaking oil.
  2. I just got back form my test drive and knock sensor problem has been fixed! Please, if the knock sensor codes appear for your 1999 Lexus ES300 do not buy aftermarket sensors or an after market harness. That is what I did the first time around and ended up having to tear my engine a part twice. In order to make sure you're ordering the right parts you'll need to check the month you vehicle was manufactured. If it was built prior to August 1999 you're going to want sensor part number 89615-12040 (~$165 a piece). As for the electrical harness you're going to want to buy part number 82219-07

When I took everything apart this past weekend I was able to clear three of the five codes that were present but the ones that came back were these knock sensor fails/malfunctions. I believe my problem is that I replaced the OEM sensors with $25 junk from amazon. When it com
  4. When I found out what had happened oddly enough I wasn't even surprised. I'm only 25 but I've lost so much faith in humanity already it just makes me want to crawl under a rock. Thanks for the support on this post!
