Puff of smoke on cold startup.

Every now and then I get a puff of white smoke she I start my 13' GC overland 5.7. It's literally just a puff at initial start up and then goes away.

It seems more like smoke then it does vapor...but I need to do one more sniff test to confirm.

It only happens after the car has been sitting for a while.

I've seen people say that this can happen on an incline but it happens to me on my perfectly level driveway.

I installed a mopar cai recently, a while (more then 6 months ago) I installed a corsa exhaust.

Anyone have experience with something like this?

Re: Puff of smoke on cold startup.

Might be to much oil due to incorrect dip stick.
