I got a 1997 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 its got 132,000 miles on it. Recently had to put two brand new heads on due to both of the old ones being cracked. I also put a high volume oil pump on and thoroughly cleaned the engine. Ever since I had that done it now smokes a little smoke when it starts up after sitting for a period of time longer than about an hour or so. The smoke looks white but smells like oil. What could be the problem?

How are your driving habits? (ie short or long trips) If you short-trip the truck, I'd take it on a long highway trip (to eliminate excess moisture out of the exhaust system), waiting for a bit afterwards until it's completely cold again, and then crank her back up and see if you get the same results.
