    Temporary white smoke

    So here I go. Have 2K4 WRX. Drove it around a little this morning and no problems. Went to go to the store, started it up and started to back up and white smoke came out of the exhaust. None at idle just when reving up. Checked the oil and was about 3/4 qt. low. Added oil. Checked coolant res. and saw nothing unusual. Drove it a few blocks, revved it up a few times and alas no smoke. Hooked up COBB AP to see where the boost was at. Displayed a high of 13. Normally 14.5-14.7. And no longer sounds like a banshee when spooling up.

    No one responded but found something out

    So got my 2K4 WRX in to the shop to see if the white smoke was from failed turbo, blown head gasket, or bad cylinder. After a few nail biting hours later I called and asked for the verdict. None of that was found! Everything was in excellent working order! It was suggested that it was built up condensation in the exhaust. That made since because it was very hot and humid that day then cooled down quite a bit. And the smoke had no sweet or acrid smell. Just smoke that went away. Hope this may help anyone else that experiences this but always get it checked out.
