Exhaust smoke

Asked by Feb 22, 2017 at 09:59 PM about the 2008 MINI Cooper S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I'm stuck in traffic and the car is idle for awhile,
when I accelerate I see whiteish smoke come out. I
know it's not normal but the car runs fine. I've
stayed on top of the maintenance but no one
seems to know the issue. Help!

If the exhaust has a sweet smell to it, then it is a good indication of a bad head gasket.
