    white smoke...

    recently saw that my car has white smoke coming from the exhaust on idle. dosent seem to happen when driving(not as bad) but once i back of the pedal white smoke appears again. some days its ok others theres a lot.

    anyone had this problem before?

    could it be the O2 sensor? recently had an air/fuel ratio gauge installed.

    It means condensation in the exhaust, which is nothing to worry about and perfectly normal.
    But of course white smoke doesn't always mean water! It just usually is.
