MY 92 WITH 107K MILES STARTED BLOWING WHITE EXHAUST CLOUDS THAT SMELL LIKE RAW FUEL VERY STRONG, OVERPOWERING FUEL SMELL. SHOULD I START WITH FUEL ISSUES OR TEST/LEAN TOWARD THE HEAD GASKET? NOT LOSING COOLANT, NO OIL IN WATER, ETC. BUT THE OIL SMEL

My 92 Camry with 107K miles started blowing white exhaust clouds that smell like raw fuel VERY Strong, overpowering fuel smell. Should I start with fuel issues or test/lean toward the head gasket? Not losing coolant, no oil in water, etc. But the oil smells like fuel as well. Thoughts and opinions welcome

Bad injectors or bad FPR? CEl on?

No CEL, injecters not dripping, seem to spray/pulse normally. But F Pressure drops immediately after engine shuts off

Would be checking the fuel pressure regulator first.

Turns out it was the ECU. I used a noid light to test signal to each injector and there was the problem. The white smoke burned out over a couple good drives and all is well again!
