Need some help!

I just installed new spark plugs on my 05 V6. After all done I started the car. It started up no problem and seemed to be running fine. Before I put the hood down I noticed some smoke that seemed to be coming from the passenger side by the plugs. I did use PB Blaster to loosen up the old plugs. Do you think this is just smoking drone the PB blaster that may have dripped onto the headers?

yes, but check torque on plugs to be safe.

Yeah I made sure to torque them and checked again afterwards. It was just the PB Blaster. I just had a momentary panic of all the things that could go wrong. Thanks for the reply

Torqued them with an actual torque wrench and anti seize right?


Most likely the smoke was just residual fluid.

Yes to both. Yeah it stopped smoking after a little and took it for a drive and all was running great!
