Default What the hell could it be????

Well my car started smoking today. Its a white smoke, not blue or black and it doesnt smell burnt. It just smells like stinky catless exhaust. And the car isnt using any oil.

It smokes after you let off the gas and the car is just about at idle it will puff some white for a bit. Sometimes quite a bikr sometimes just a little puff.

Now is this from me being catless??? and if so why would it start now as I have been running catless for a few months now and never experienced this before.

It was puffing so bad for a bit there a guy on a harley pulled up beside me to let me know it was smoking alot.....now for a harley guy to say something is smoking bad it must have been...........

so any input????

how cold is it out?

If its somewhat chilly, its probably moisture. Typically White smoke means coolant, even if you can't always smell it

Head gasket maybe? That's a classic sign of burning coolant in the cylinder isn't it?

will my coolant level noticeably go down????

I had Jenn follow my car and watch and its not smoking a bad as it was. It only smokes when I let off the gas not while driving or acceleration.

If the car is in the driveway idling it doesnt smoke but if I step on the gas and let it go back down to idle it sits for a second then a puff comes out and then it stops.

Well its for sure moisture, the car is spitting it out the exhaust and a little puddle is forming inside the exhaust tip. And the exhaust is very wet, you can feel it. Im not loosing any coolant so if it that, its not very much going in.

Also today I threw an engine code and all 4 cylinders misfired.........but the car is still running fine.

Think I will be paying Rally a visit on monday.
