SMOKE FROM THE ENGINE

1995 Eagle Talon

Engine Cooling problem
1995 Eagle Talon 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 119335 miles

Hi, today while I was driving I had smoke coming from the engine compartment of my Talon but only while I was idling. This concerns me cause I am about to go on a road trip in order to get back home and I don't want massive damage done to my car. However the radiator pressure in the vehicle was fine. Was it just cause it was cold outside or something?

Hi there,

Check all fluid levels and ensure that there is nothing on the exhaust like a plastic bag that you may have run over and it has melted to the hot exhaust.
