    Default 2013 Jimny Exhaust Smoke

    Hi everyone.

    I am a bit worried about my 2013 Jimny. Bought it new, have done about 13000km in 10 months and taken it off road multiple times. Nothing out of the ordinary. I get an average of 13 km/l so I clearly don't drive it very hard.
    In the last two days there has been quite a bit of white smoke coming from the exhaust. I saw it twice in my rear view mirror and once from the outside when my wife drove it. All three times was shortly after the car was started.
    I have googled quite a bit and read about condensation occuring in the exhaust but I would think cold temperature would have something to do with it. Two of the three times mentioned above was in the afternoon and once in the cold morning. I should think and hope that a new engine should not leak oil into the pistons unless something is horribly wrong.
    Does anyone have any ideas, or has it happened to anyone. My one friend mentioned that it could be that the car is still being "driven in" but it doesn't sound relevant.
    Cheers, thanks

    Op n erenstige nood ek kan nie glo dat jou enjin enigsins op daardie kilos kan n probleem he nie. Ek dink is slegs kondensasie as dit net op koue dae gebeur. As jou Jimny n blou wit rook gee en daar is n olie verbruik dan het jy iets om oor te worry

    Cold start valve. Had it on other cars previously. Only a problem when its cold, the mixture is so rich that she starts smoking ( like a diesel with not enough air smokes). It's basically over fueling. Rev it a few times.

    As dit "over fueling" is sal die voertuig swart rook.

    Sounds like that Jimny has a fur ball in its throat
    I would suggest finding a good and quiet road, and once the engine is nicely warmed up, rev the engine to the limiter or near the limiter between gear changes. And give it a chance to clean its throat
    Then give it horns for some distance to stretch its legs a bit.
    It should be a different animal after that.
    Anyone else with a different proposal?
