i could be the exhaust smoke because when u turn of the car the exhaust smoke inside the exhaust system blows out very slowly is running condition it is being pushed out by the exhaust coming from the cylinders ! but if u see fumes as well that could be the leaking oil burning !

yeah because i am having a small oil leak on the oil pan which is near the exhaust itself so i am hoping if i seal the leak and clean it it should stop... pretty much killing 2 birds with one stone
