    Hey gang,
    When climbing a steep grade on the Hwy as the long hill makes my motor 'work' to keep up speed (60-65mph)and RPM I notice that the rear begains bellowing out white smoke. What could this be? This is the only time I notice any smoke comming out of my exhaust??? Once the grade levels out the smoke goes away??

    Are you sure the smoke is bellowing from the pipes I thought mine was doing the same when I would pull a trailer. It took someone following me to tell me it was coming from beneath and not the pipes despite what it looked like from my side mirrors. Mine turned out to be the tranny fluid was getting hot and spewing out the breather tube. I know you have a standard tranny VS my Th350 that did this but it still could be from somewheres else. White smoke is usually an indication of water in the exhaust. A bit confusing as to why it would do this only on uphill slopes

    Hey Burt, You'd better find out if it is your tranny fluid. Remember what happened to Triaged's Blazer when his tranny fluid spilled over? Well here is a reminder.

    White (blueish white) smoke usually indicates burning oil. I think you have a small oil leak dripping on the exhaust system somewhere. During normal driving, your exhaust stays cool enough that the oil doesn't burn. When you hit a grade and the engine starts working harder, the exhaust temp climbs and enters the range where the leaked oil begins to burn on the exhaust. Check for oil on your exhaust system from hedders to mufflers and you will probably find a spot where oil is leaking on it. Good luck.

    I think I need to replace the wire that got "crispy" from that fire (the one to my starter). I had to change the starter out last sunday and that wire cracked when I tried to bend it.
