Is it leaking? Any unusual noise? May just be grease or coolant burning off the exhaust-block. Let it run for a bit if every thing looks okay and if you know you did the correct job.

Best Answer

No, coolant is hitting the ground, no unusual noise. Was afraid to run it for a while. I will let it run until it gets to operating temp and hopefully the smoke goes away. Thanks
