Car is smoking from tail pipe
67 with 383 is smoking from both back tail pipes, the car does have a "transmission leak" as there is a puddle in the garage, its hard for me to distinguish the color of the smaoke its like white clear smoke versus blue or black, the car isnt running sluggish and it isnt over heating or anything, the smell doesnt smell like gas either the smolking just strated this weekend could the fuel i have gotten simply have been bad or had condensation in it or something?
To rule out head gasket, i removed the radiator cap no bubbles and the car radiator is full to the top even after driving it for a good 1hr straight and the over flow tank still has fluid in it im not sure why its smoking outthe back tail pipes? With the transmission leak could there be a way its buring it off? . Doesnt really have that sweet anti freeze smell or water smell ? Although its kind of white the smoke is clear as well and its smoking equally from both dual back tail pipes?.
If not a blown head gasket maybe an intake manifold gasket i just dont know, what tests would you do to strat rulling out possible things?
it about helping others
