Hello,

Ran the engine yesterday and today. The exhaust has some white colour to it. I wondering if its a problem?

My LandRover for example has more of a sooty exhaust (over fueling).

Nah ! so long as you can see your neighbour's house !!!

Seriously though, does it go away after a good run with engine warmed up ?

I wouldn't say totally white? light blue goes away when it gets warm?
That's normal for them, I drove them in the Army it's very normal for them to produce lot's of smoke but once warmed up will go away, I live in Melbourne and I get a lot more starting it now in winter than starting it in summer 3-5 min.
unless giving it a bit of stick going up a hill there's not much smoke at all.
it's a 35 yr old ex ADF truck pre emission truck so prob about -5 Euro standard

Thanks gents. I ran it from cold for about 5 minutes until the temp had just moved off the 40 degree mark then turned it off. It was a light grey.
