OK been that I can't remember what color smoke means what.
My car is starting to smoke, it mostly happens when leaving a light, I get a nice small cloud of smoke, big enough to notice but not a smoke screen. I just noticed it today that I was smoking, but my roommate mention seeing smoke when my car was idling last night. I figure it had to do with the cold motor. Well when I went to heel-toe into my school, I left a james bond cloud of smoke.
here is the know condition of the car:
there was an oil leak coming from the valve cover that I fixed(no more oil been sprayed on the valve cover and no more dips)
the coolent is basicly 85-90% water, due to just replacing a bad T-stat gasket and not realizing that the coolent bottle at my place where just water
the tail shaft seal is leaking on my rx7 transmission, I am replacing that hopefully next week(waiting on a check)
the oil pressure guage was reading just under 30psi when I pulled into the parking lot, I would say about 27-28psi.
the vacum gauge i believe was reading correctly but I will know more when I drive home after school
