My car has 232000 miles.

When the motor is running at operating temperature, and you remove the oil cap, it’s common for a small amount of smoke to come from the engine. This is usually caused by exhaust gases, heat or gasoline vapor that mixes with the air to create a small amount of smoke. However, if a large amount of white smoke is coming from the dipstick and oil cap, it’s likely that you have internal engine damage; especially if the engine is hard to start. You should probably have the Hyundai inspected as soon as possible by a professional mobile mechanic, so they can determine what might be damaged on your car.
