Re: Hemi smoking?

The last three cars I've owned, Acura, Jeep, Chevy, all gave off quite a bit of white/light grey smoke on start up and for the first few miles, in cold weather.

My current Jeep continues to do this on hard acceleration even after the car warms up. At times it is so thick you can't see out the rear window for a couple of seconds. Driving at any constant speed and this goes away. It has only started since the weather got really cold.

If it continues once the weather warm up I'll have the dealer take a look.


If you need a shoulder to cry on ...
... pull over to the side of the road!

It was on a very very slight incline and I did do an oil change over the weekend with the proper oil. I'm pretty sure it was below the max level mark on the dip stick.
I hope I don't regret my 1st Chrysler purchase ever.

Anyone else ever have this happen?

Guess I need to start looking for a good catch can?

Has happened to me since the day I purchased it.. the PCV systems on the HEMI's are C R A P ... so I added a catch can.

Yeah I still get a puff every now and then when I WOT
