White smoke when I stand it

Mine was blowing HUGE white smoke & long story short, I replaced the vaccuum modulator on the tranny..Haven't seen the slightest bit of smoke since then!!
Check the vaccuum line that goes to the modulator on the tranny for signs of tranny fluid inside it..If your modulator is bad, the vaccuum line will suck tranny fluid & it ends up going straight into your intake manifold along with your fuel..Hence the white smoke..

Not to "dis" your reply but
running rich produces black smoke.
Ted, if your car sits for days between use or you only use it for short runs, moisture will build up in the exhaust components and this moisture will be
dispelled during periods of high flow rates (read -standing on it) This produces white smoke as white smoke is an indicator of steam aka vaporized moisture. (note: Burning ATF will also make white/ble smoke as Slag says)
This steam is of no concern if after a thorough warm up the vapor ceases. Be forewarned your exhaust may rust through faster though.
