Just noticed some white smoke coming from the exhaust on my glanza recently, only when its on idle and when I give it a slight rev...

Any idea what this is??

Thanks, John

its just moisture in the exhaust and the fact that the exhaust gases are hot and its cold outside john i wouldnt worry about it but if ya wanna be sure get a compression test done

Always happens as the cold weather starts edging in.

Nothing to worry about usually unless accompanied by other symptoms.

i'm getting smoke out of my exhuast but its def not the cold.

basically i can rev it and it is fine but as i ease off and let the revs run down ( as in driving in gear ) everything is fine but then if i go back on the throttle a big puff of whitish smoke comes out. what could this be.
i know it is using a bit of oil. is it anything to worry about or should i get it checked out. it runs fine though

stem seals might be going

Mine did this on a standard CT9, nothing then a puff of white smoke when you hit the go pedal again.

When i got my Hybrid on it still did it untill I got it tuned to 1bar, previously i was running 0.5 with a hose leak.

The tuner said i was running rich so too much fuel was going in to cope with the lower boost maybe hence the dollop of white smoke, so since im running 1bar now its stopped altogether.

My two pence.

Mine only started to smoke after an oil change a while back. Filter was changed aswell but mechanic put a little bit too much oil in so i thought maybe it was burning it off. But it is at a good level now and smokes still tho.
