    White smoke= coolant,water being burned in combustion chambers or condensation in exaust pipes.

    Black Smoke= running rich more fuel than can be burned during the combustion process

    Blue/Grey Smoke= Oil being burned in the combustion chambers

    Check your oil, if see anti freeze on the stick then you may have a serious problem. If not take it and run for a while it will probably clear up.
