Quick question on smoke colors;
My truck's an 01, and I haven't had it through winter yet. Low miles for the year (60,000). Completely stock. All maintenance kept up.
Today was about 51 degrees fahrenheit in Maryland which is kinda warm for Mid-December here. I noticed under a good heavy right foot (Auto-Stock 4R100) the turbo spools quickly and I see an initial grayish-white smoke, not a lot by any means, but enough to notice if you're lookign out the right mirror and it doesn't keep smoking either. Truck was warmed up. No fluid loss on anything, truck cranks over fine in the coldest temps so far (low 30s) without plugging in. I've been plugging in when it gets down to the 20s. I only happen to see it because it was late afternoon and the sun was at a certain angle to the road.
Maybe it was the humidity, or something to due with the weather. It doesn't smoke if you just drive it normally.
