I recentley had some transmission work done. (Replaced filter and seals) but there is still a cloud of white smoke that comes out of my exhaust pipes when I excellerate or first crank up. It mostley only happens after i've been driving it and it has warmed up. It has a sweet smell to it. (Smoke) there is also a coolant light on in my car, but there is coolant in there an my car doesnt run hot. Help me please! Point me in the right direction on where to start. I love my car but the smoke is becoming a problem. Also could some one tell me the best oil and gas to put into a 2000 mustang gt. Thanks, cant wait for your replys! Muah!

You're burning coolant in the combustion chamber -could be headgasket/crack head or block -get it block and pressure tested.

The white sweet smelling smoke means that your car is getting coolant into the combustion chamber(s) and will possibly require some major engine repairs. Worst case is a cracked cylinder head(s) Maybe just a delaminated head gasket, whatever the cause, the engine will require a tear down to isolate the issue.
