1996 Mustang GT blows white smoke sometimes...
I got a 1996 Mustang GT that blows white smoke. I try to not pay attention to it, but it may have a blueish tint to it, I'm not 100% for sure. Anyways, it only does this after sitting at a light or something. Never when it's cold, never when I'm driving, never when I floor it, only after a minute or two of sitting then a take off. I just replaced the radiator because it had a leak and was heating my car up sometimes, seems to run good now. The temperature does fluctuate between below half and just above half, but my mechanic said that's normal, any thoughts?
Anyway, back to the smoke. I've ran a block test, no internal leaks, no blown head gasket. Just checked the spark plugs, clean as a whistle. I've read online that no cats can cause this, is that true? I'm running an o/r x-pipe and my o2 sensors are burnt out. I'm gonna replace them soon, but want to make sure that's the problem otherwise that smoke will burn out my new o2 sensors, in which case there's no point in replacing them right now. Maybe I just need a tune up. Thoughts???
