Condensation burning off after the cats and exhaust got hot? Maybe?

Was it within a couple miles of a cold start? Did it evaporate?

Smoke will drift away as smoke. Steam/condensation will only make it a short distance from the pipes.

maybe if you told us where you lived - not your address but just your town or area - another member might have a suggestion for a reputable dealer in your area. just a thought.

Hope you get your issue resolved TJ! Try driving to empty and then filling up with 89 octane rather than 87 and then disconnect your battery overnight to reset the ECU and see if the car stops running rich
Thanks Al! I'm gonna put in some 89 next time I fill it up.

It was not after a cold start, but 2 other people I talked to mentioned the condensation thing also. So perhaps thats what it is

The LLT does tend to run a little rich and those stock mufflers like to hold onto condensation so steam is pretty common.

FWIW, my SS tailpipes are BLACK inside, but the oil stays clean and gas mileage is 23 mpg.

Warm up your car, then check the exhaust.

A little rich is better than too lean.

My pops said he saw black smoke coming out of my pipes, a couple weeks later my engine was blown! Do you have any rattling?
