Thermostat may have hung up should be changed? When was the last time it done. Flush the system with a good system flush, New thermostat and new coolent with 50% water, 50% coolent.

I changed it back in October but I haven't did a system flush. But would that cause it to randomly blow light grey out the exhaust smoke after sitting all night.

The grey or blue grey smoke, is an indication of oul being burned. White smoke is antifreeze/water

Um going to take my thermostat out return it an do a flush today
