Answers :

Not to worry. Run the engine up to operating temp before jumping to conclusions and let the heat burn off any excess oil. A leaf will not do any damage.Do not let the engine overheat while idling and if the oil light comes on switch off immediately.
The smoke from the exhaust is oil deposited by oily assembly hands just burning off. It should dissipate after about 15 minutes at most.(or 5 miles' drive)
I have a NA 1994 Volvo 850. I have excessive pressure in the crankcase. Light smoke emits from dip stick when running and it is using an excessive amount of oil. I understand that this model does not have a PCV valve that could be clogged and I certainly don't want to think about a blown head gasket. What other direction should I look?
