    Smoking Exhaust in the cold

    Guys,

    This is probably going to be a really stupid question but ever since my engine fire im extra paranoid.

    On start up in the morning (especially in the cold weather) i am noticing a lot of exhaust smoke. It is only really until the car has reached running temp.

    Any clues.

    cause of the cold, the heat of the exhaust and the water vapour in the air etc, nothing too much to worry about tbh mate
