    Unhappy HELP!!! puffing white smoke out of the exhaust....

    Is it the cat?
    I thought you only worried if it was gray/blue. That was how you used to know you had blown a ring/gasket and burning oil.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Observe the masses and do the opposite
