The engine idle seems to be normal now. Another issue has cropped up since doing the radiator flush, changing out the thermostat, and putting some fuel injector cleaner in one tank of gas. There is a white smoke that comes out of the exhaust - rather heavy at times, and not at all other times. It s intermittent, so I m wondering if it could be a bad ECTS. The car isn t overheating, the coolant level isn t dropping, nor is it creamy from oil contamination, and the oil isn t contaminated either. The upper radiator hose hasn t collapsed since it s replacement either. The white exhaust doesn t smell sweet like coolant, and the engine runs great since I replaced the plugs, wires, and valve cover gasket.
Any idea what would cause this intermittent white smoke? It smells bland - like regular exhaust, but maybe a little harder. Not sure if that makes sense. The main thing is it doesn t smell like coolant or oil. I appreciate your thoughts.
