Need more information brother bentles!!

Oil smoke i take it? s**t from exhaust may be condensation, fuel, oil. Shouldnt really be anything coming from zorst after engine is well and truly warmed up.

Check for signs of oil in coolant, coolant in oil. Any coolant mysteriously disappearing?

pretty much everything got replaced a month ago (4g of stuff)
and its on a hill so it says over max in the coolant tank so id say its right....

in the mornings when i first start her i can get to the end of my driveway and thats the engine on for a good 5 mins with no throttle....

when i hit the road and give it some to get uphill it pours smoke or steam out the zorst (most probably steam) and thats about it....

when i revved it today i could smell whatever the white s**t was and i am pretty sure it was smoke not steam... anyway when its been used for a while in afternoon ie coming home from school ill give it some and see what happens...

cheers
