Recently Ive noticed that when I start my car in the morning to head to work, white smoke comes out of my tailpipe for just a few seconds then it clears up. It only does this when the car has been sitting for a long time, such as over night. Any ideas or suggestions here?
Its definitely not bluish at all. Its whiter than regular steam that comes out from it being super cold outside. When I first start it up, white smoke rolls out for just a few seconds then its gone. Hopefully its nothing to worry about.
This has been happening a little more lately. Still not a constant smoke from my tail pipes, just a puff for a few seconds then it clears up. I also noticed that instead of just happening occasionally at startup, one time I was driving and it did it. Any ideas what it could be before I take it to the "stealership" and have them check it out?
My car still billows white smoke at times. This typically happens within a few hundred miles of an oil change then disappears until the next one. It can happen upon sitting for several hours or pulling off from a redlight. The car will often feel like its stuttering/hesitating while the smoke is present then it clears right up and the engine pulls just fine.
