Hello every one im new here HELP..i used to drive merc so now juz recently bought used 2004 XT 2.0 mileage 20k. Can someone address me regarding white smoke i try to read all the forum but get some confusion. First white or blue smoke coming out from the pipe when idle if i rev up after few minute starting my car, then no smoke after i drove. I try to check at the workshop they say could be the piston ring or the valve seal. Its hard to trust people at the workshop. So any idea as im going to change the oil first. My coolent at d moment using just water.

Thanks. Hope its not going for overhaul.

Welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

Good luck researching your smoking issue. If I read correctly, you're using just water for coolant? If so, I'd recommend using a Subaru approved coolant & conditioner. Antifreeze does more than prevent freezing, it raises the bowling point & prevents metal corrosion. :wink:
