Light gray smoke is a sign of a mild rich condition caused by a sensor not working properly. It needs to be scaned by a mechanic so he can read the computer data stream and see how the sensors are reacting and if you are tranfering from closed loop to open loop.

You engine has been known for early ring failure also. Good luck
