    this morning i flooded my engine, when i finaly got it started i was blowing quite a bit of whitish smoke out the exhaust, the usuall cold running color, but much more of it. i checked my coolant level and its the same, does this normally happen? it was also raining this morning.
    any input appreciated

    I've flooded a vehicle before, and it blew smoke when it started up. I doubt it is anything to be worried about.
