Hi badmaxima1998,

If the smoke is slightly grey and only starts coming out after a few minutes of starting from cold and the engine oil level drops, tyhe most likely cause are bad valve seals.

I just bought 2001 Nissan Maxima. When I start the car, there is a little white smoke that comes out of the exhaust. For like 2 seconds. Is this normal? Also when I checked my antifreeze it was in brown color? Another thing I would like to ask about the belt or timing chain, when are they suppose to be changed/replaced? Thanks.

Exahust-its just rich, its an older car. Antifreeze is dirty. Timing chain should not be replaced unless there is a problem. Belts- replace when they are cracked. HTH.
