    need help, smoke out of my hoodscoop

    hey guys, need some help..kind of a noob to all this and not to mechanically inclined, know some but not much. earlier today I was driving and when I stopped I had smoke coming out of my hoodscoop and thru my vents, it wasn't a lot and didn't last long at all but still makes me nervous..my up pipe is cracked at the moment(in the process of getting it fixed) so I don't know if it could just be that or something else..sorry for the novel and thanks for taking ur time to read it..any knowledge will help. thanks.

    Id say drive it around a bunch then pull over and pop the hood to see where its coming from and that can help you solve that problem.. for more of a reply.. post what year and what all you can about your car for people to help you out better

    Could be that, but could be anything under the scoop. I would get a little more info to relay and that might help to figure it out

    alright, well thanks guys. like I said I'm new to all this so any advice helps. I have an 05 WRX...pretty much bone stock at the moment. I have a turbo back and boost gauge that will be put on soon..don't really know what other info you would need, but I tried pulling over and popping my hood but It was already over by then..thanks again fellas appreciate it.

    Best thing to do would be to find out where the smoke is coming from. Could be an oil leak burning on the exhaust, which would have a blue tint. It could also be a coolant leak burning, which would smell sweet and look white. Or if your referring to smoke like a heat wave it could be the up-pipe/manifold.

    Side note, did you still want my up-pipe?
