Car got cranky after cranky

The other day I went to take my girlfriend out in my 2012 Mustang GT and upon startup, it emitted a big cloud of white/blue smoke, ran roughly for a minute or so. I shut it off and restarted and no issues.

I think what happened was a partially failed start filled a cylinder with fuel and it banged off that slug of gas for a little while trying to clear it. I was worried it might hydro on the fluid.

Later I pulled the plugs and ran a comp check. All plugs looked perfect and the comp check spat back 180-190 on all 8 so, nothing is damaged.

It has done this once before in the nearly three years I've owned it but not enough to make it run rough last time, just a bit of smoke.

Just a data point, no ongoing problems so, no questions.

It seems to be running as normal, making the same power in the same way and it passed the instrumented testing, shows no codes so, chances are good I am fine here.

I'm taking it on a road trip to Vegas at Xmas so, I gotta have faith in the thing. that's an easy 5000 mile trip once I am done my there and back.

After something like that happens to me I freak myself out about every little noise. Don't do the same lol.

It's a Mustang...little noises are par for the course on this budget sports car. Big billowing clouds of smoke choking my girlfriend standing behind the car, not so much. I think the car was just a bit jealous.

If you have access to an ids might just wanna run a fuel system test just to be safe, but if it only happened once then its probably nothing to worry about

A leaky injector would have shown on the plugs and as probable power loss. Plugs we're perfect across all 8 and the car's as much a rocket as ever. Not disrespecting but there isno indication if that.
