Today was a pretty chilly day for August. It was about 55 degrees (Fahrenheit) and I didn't drive my car as much as usual. Tonight On my way home I noticed a lot of white smoke from my tail pipes. I'm used to that when it's really cold during the winter but today it was just chilly and my engine was warm. Do you think this has to do with the sudden temperature drop or do you think it's like a coolent leak or something? It wasn't doing this before. Only today.

It is probably just condensation in the pipes from temp change. Check for coolant smell at tail pipe and keep an eye on your coolant level for a few days.

If it doesn't have an odd smell I would go with condensation.

You didn't say how long you drove the car, but that smoke would have went away if you were on the road for 20 minutes or less.

I have blow a head gasket in the past. Yes, you get white smoke out the exhaust. Yes, you get the incredibly sweet smell of your anti-freeze too. :surprise:
