White Exhaust Smoke

I know any color smoke is bad when the weather is not cold on my car. I researched what white smoke means on a car. Here's what I have found out;

WikiAnswers - What can cause white smoke from the exhaust,

I just replaced the lower portion of the upper ic pipe setup because i ran a curb a few months back. Luckily it only damaged that pipe section and not the FMIC. Other then that, the Evo has just been sitting there ever since. White smoke comes out the exhaust but the car runs just as strong. Changed the Spark plugs awhile back also and want to see what you all think. I'mma take a look at it whenever it stops raining to narrow down some solutions. Thanks

Start with a compression test. Look to see if you are loosing antifreeze, cause it could be a leakin head gasket. Check that first if thats not the problem check some of the other possible causes from wiki answers. Good luck hope its nothing too serious.

white smoke would not be oil from my experience.

it means a headgasket for the most part. check the dipstick for bubbles in the oil. that could be water/coolant which also means headgasket. good luck with your car!
