big white smoke plumes!?
Posted 04 December 2004 - 11:29 PM
recently had a big plume of white smoke when starting the car a couple of times recently,very embarrasing, and would go away after warming up.
smoke comes from under hood and tailpipe-
i look under the hood and some grease had been burnning on the CAT, cleaned it up and seem to do the trick. But if that'sd it , how did it get into the tailpipe and puke out the back?
I've got a Weber on a EA81 and runs fantastic, has it gone outta tune a bit? is this a cold weather occurance? White plume smells of water....
could it be a clutch cabl adjustment, is the the clutch/cable?
any input appreciated.

white smoke may be due to climatic conditions, humidity, driving through water, cold air and engine temp
the grease may be a cv axle boot is bad, typical
the clutch cable, either it works or it doesn't :cool:

remove your oil cap and check for white film underneath.
if it only happens right at start up, it shouldn't be grease, oil or ATF since the exhaust isn't hot yet.
does it continue to smoke at all after warming up?
