wondering about exhaust smoke
In the cold weather is it normal for you exhaust to smoke, even after warmed up? Also some type of liquid is in the exhaust, is that just condensation? Is it a sign of my head gascets going bad? help anyone. Also has a weird smell, kinda like fuel and coolant coming out of my exhaust. angry angry angry

Most cars have that little vapor trail in winter. i don't think it's anything to worry about.

that is all just normal winter exhaust characteristics... the liquid is just condensation from the "smoke" that you see. the smoke is kinda like when you can see your breath in the cold air... nothing to worry about

I do, but after a while there goes away, I let mine run for 45 min. And it was still thick, looking as if my car was on fire. Others come thin, Like my beeter, it starts out like how I explained, but after it warms up, the smoke is hardly noticeable. As for my celica, it stays thick, Where I cant even see in back of it. But you say its normal, I gotta believe. This is my first snowy winter, so I dont really know much of these colder climates thumbsup thumbsup
Thx everyone

yea i think the celi gives of a big smoke cloud too. Like when your at a stop sign and hit the gas and you can still see your cloud of smoke rolling around at the stop sign.

it's normal, wait until you get the TRD muffler or whatever, it's going be even more because of the larger muffler tip...
