Hi Kevinbuch
If it is white smoke that sounds like water?

If it has been used only for short trips it maybe water in the exhaust and if you have now started to do longer trips and it is getting well up to temperature you are clearing out the system.

Hows the oil and coolant any losses? also what mileage.

Also with the weather we have been having at the moment, even my desiel in the morning looks like a stream train until it get warmed up.

Hope the above helps



Bob.
