Smoking 'Rear end'.


Recommended Posts

My 2002 Rav4 diesel emits a small cloud of white 'smoke' on start up, don't notice any when driving, it happens when engine is hot or cold. Any 'nice' suggestions or is it the tipping point?

It is not abnormal for condensation to take place in the exhaust when the system cools down after a run.  Then when started up, the hot gases turn the condensate to steam.  If its just a puff, not a continuous stream, that's what it could be.
