Last friday I noticed that my truck emmited a white/ slightly grey cloud of smoke throught the exhaust. This was at start up. I then went to check the exhaust tip for any deposits of sute, but it was clean (not black on my finger tips). So I reved it up a bit to see if some more smoke would come out, just a bit more came out, then when I took off it went away. While driving it does not smoke, but if I park it for a couple of hours and then go to start it, it smokes again just like I mentioned before. I hardly don't use this truck, I just have it as a back up vehicle. When I got it 3 months ago I replaced the pcv valve, o2 sensor, plugs, plug wires, belts, belt tensioner, I changed all the fluids and oil, new filters, radiator flush. I even had the engine bay degreased. Then I just had it sitting there up until 9 days ago. My mechanic cousin says it could be some bad pison rings that are letting oil seep in. Any clarification on this would help. Thank you.
have the same problem?
