Still pretty new to working on my own vehicle and diagnosing stuff...

After the engine is running for a minute or so I am getting smoke in the cab ONLY while in gear. If I put it in neutral, it stops. I'm pretty sure it's not over-heating, although my temp. gauge isn't working. But it seem abnormally hot and I can't really smell anything out of the ordinary.

Maybe something is dripping on the exhaust while I'm driving? It's only coming into the cab. Not coming from the bottom or out from behind the car.

Let me know what y'all think. :confused:

Does this odorless smoke have a color?

It's white. I drove around the block again today, and it does sort of have a smell. Just not something I recognize (which isn't much). Sorry I'm being about as vague as I can be. But I'm telling you what I know.

White.
Oil possibly. Have a good close look at the entire exhaust system for signs of an oil leak dripping on it and burning off before it hits the ground.

Electrical is another possible source of white smoke. Usually doesn't last long and is accompanied by an immediate cease of some electrical function.
