smok out tail pipe when starting cold


Recommended Posts

My car has smoke out the tail pipe (on initial start) if I park it for at least a week or 2. If I drive it and it sits for a day or 2 it does not smoke. Any ideas???

Mine does the same thing, only if it sits for a week or so. It appears to be oil (smoke will be bluish-gray). If it is water or condensation, the smoke will be white. Probably just drain-back from somewhere for sitting so long. Car is low mileage <5k. If you do some searching on mustang forums, I think you'll find it's fairly common, just not noticeable on daily drivers. Other than being annoying, I don't think it's a big deal.

Mine had 5K also, I smelled it and it is oil. It only smokes for a few seconds. Thanks for the reply.

Mine does the same thing when it sits for awhile, if it goes away after a few seconds then your ok, if it keeps on .............then you got problems. :headscratch:
