White smoke.

My relay went out as many of you prob know, and I changed that and the fuel pump. The car is running fine now except for a whole lot of white snoke. The car did sit for a few weeks, does anybody know what the smke is all about?

I believe that is the symptom of a bad head gasket.

The last time I saw white smoke coming out the exhaust of one of my cars it had a slight sweet smell to it and it turned out to be antifreeze blowing past the intake manifold (not a MB car though)

Does the white smoke continue after warm up, or is it only when cold. It might only be condensation. Remember the weather is getting a little cooler now.

Have a great day,

For some reason it has just stopped. I just replaced the fuel pump and the relay, and it had been sitting for about a month. But I started it this morning and let it run for about a half an hour, and there is no trace of it anymore. It was pouring out, and I mean bad, but it had been sitting, and I had poured some fuel into the intake to get it to start sever al times, but like I said now there is no trace of it....I am baffled!

I would expect that it was only condensation and possibly a little excess fuel from the priming burning off.

Drive and enjoy with no worry.

Have a great day,
