    white smoke

    So I got my car all together and it runs nice. there is a problem with the throw out baring, it needs replaced so it makes a crazy noise until it heats up then pretty much goes away. but now we have another issue. after running the car, when you stop a white smoke (not a thick white smoke) will come threw the front top vent in the middle and only them. it smells like something is burning not so much wires but something else. i am wondering if its from the clutch or something else. you can smell it sometimes when driving but dont see smoke till its gone. and there is no smoke coming from anything else when you look under the hood when its runing. there is no ac at all in the car. so just wondering if anyone else has any ideas.

    No we didnt, but i figured it out. There was a piece of hose that came out of the fire wall that was laying aginst the exhaust and it was melting. I moved it and now there is no more white smoke
