I had timing chain and water pump replaced two weeks ago, car had a little white smoke coming from exhaust when I picked the car up from the repair shop, I thought that it was just a a break in period. Mechanic told me he had to replace bolts on intake manifold wondering if its anything that was done that could have cost car to blow white smoke and running rough.

I tmay be a head gasket problem or intake problem, watch your coolant level if it goes down have the coolant system pressure checked.

Hmac, thank you very much for your help. I'm hoping that it's the manifold intake and not the head gasket.
