Re: smokin

Whitish? Have you replaced your intake gaskets before? If not you may need to

Is your coolant level dropping at all?

It could also be condensation if its cooler than usual outdoors, 60 or below is all your car needs to steam a bit

thanks for responding... yes, white-ish. not all white, not black. put replacement intake going on 2 years ago. doesn't smell like colant, smells oily. thanks for your input.

Re: smokin

Could be a piston ring going bad. Might want to do a compression check. Can't hurt.
