White smoke... For a minute

On Monday, I replaced my O2 sensor and spark plugs because they were covered in carbon. My guess is my whole engine is covered inside with carbon. Tried the 'italian tune up'. Seems much better now.*


On Saturday I was driving down the highway for about 25ish miles at 60 mph. Then white smoke came out of the tail pipe. I pull over to the break down lane and turn her off. After a minute of 'what do I do what do I do', I turn her on. At idle, no smoke. Reved the engine, nothing. Got back onto the highway and everything was good. Since then, everything is good. No noise. checked my oil level and it was still full but was super dark brown. Almost black.*

My guess is that a large chunk of carbon fell off due to the engine vibration inside then got burned up quickly.*
