just a WAG, sounds like maybe a problem with the cooling fan..

You should be able to easily see thru the oil--it should not be murky.
It tends to look more like caramel than milk... or coffee with a small amount of cream in it.

Re: GJC summit 2015 Hemi V8 Gasoline gets hot after 15 minutes idle is it normal

ok guys thanks for all of you for sharing your ideas.Since september 9th i started using the car without any maintenance and also no coolant flush out .I started driving to and from work which is about 5 miles from my house to working place .Only few times i will drove 10 to 15 miles long straight .Mostly it is daily 5 miles going to work and 5 miles back home .
I have regularly been paying attention to the coolant level of the reservoir tank ,it is always at the full level.
Yesterday i noticed white smoke coming from the tailpipe/exhaust.Also when i closed at night i saw it after driving like 5 minutes i stopped to check .It was evening but i was able to see smoke a little from the tailpipe.The dashboard shows no error light
This morning i checked both coolant in radiator and reservoir and engine oil ,all looks normal .And made this video to show .No smoke immediately after startup .
Smoke started 2 minutes after startup and i saw water dripping from the exhaust
i have attached a video .Please advice if this is normal
I forgot to add that dashboard is clear ,meaning no error lights is on .The ecomode is like yellow/orange colour
Mileage on dash board is now under 1100 miles

^^I don't see a video attached. But I don't think it's normal. My Hemi never smoked... Take it to the dealer.
