Hi all,

This morning while I'm waiting for the engine to heat up, i saw white smoke coming out from my exhaust, the white smoke is not that bad as those motorbike smoke. What could this be ar? muffler going off soon? or? :unsure:

White smoke in the morning is being caused by cold atmosphere temperature. Whereas smoke being emitted by engine oil consumption is "blue white".

engine cold might have white smoke..but if after hours or few minutes of driving,temp go up to normal side, still got white smoke den that is not normal..it cud be worn out piston rings ... jus my 2 cents
correct!!!!
if after the engine temperature up to working temp still got white smoke then
piston ring kong
top ovehaul
RM 500 to 1000


in this period check ur engine oil often often

I think the white smoke that you mentioned is stim (water vapor). Especially during morning when the temp is low.Eg, when you go to Genting, when you speaks the hot air from your mouth collied with the cold air, you will see there is white smoke come out from your mouth :blink: . Just like our car, when the air and fuel mixed and burned, the hot gases will travell through the exh pipe and will exit through the tip. The hot gases will collied with the cold and humid atmosfere & this will produce the white smoke. :D :lol:
