I'm just trying to get some more opinions on a potential issue i have noticed. I have a 2018 Ford Fiesta had it for about 5 months. This week I noticed, when sitting in traffic, I have white smoke/steam coming from my exhaust, its not fogs and probably similar to what you would get with a cold start on a cold day, but the engine is warm. I have explained the issue to my dealer over the phone and they said its caused by the cold weather.
I would expect it on first start but is it still possible once the engine is warm?
I have no performance loss, no warning lights, engine sounds good, high revs are fine turbo kicks in and sounds fine and feels fine. Engine seems great. No coolant loss that I've noticed, temps good and no white oil. I've done a sniff test on the exhaust, as suggested online, and to me, not really a major car enthusiast, it smells like normal exhaust fumes.
As I've only spoken to the dealer over the phone I'm going to take it to them tomorrow so they can see what I'm trying to explain.
What are your thoughts? Can a new warm engine still give off steam? My last car was a 2013 KA and I don't remember seeing this.
I could just be looking for a problem because it's new etc.
I would appreciate any thoughts people have. I am going to take it into the dealer tomorrow or Saturday, just to double check all is good.
