    Default Toyota XLi White smoke Problem!!!!

    I have 2010 XLi. Its 14000 kms driven. I took it to Murree and drove it on hills and back.
    But upon returning i noticed a change in engine sound and a smoke production from exhaust.
    When the engine is cold in morning and i start the car, a white smoke produces in exhaust for about 2-3 minutes. Its not that heavy smoke. But its visible. But when engine heats up to normal level the white smoke disappears.
    I am also feeling minor reduction in pick up of a car.

    Please suggest me about it. what should i do. Should i take it to Toyota workshop? Or it is normal?

    first make sure that its steam or smoke.
    if its white smoke and not blue then it could be a blown head gasket..
    is your car reducing coolant???

    Its normal.
    White steam smells like petrol which is actually mixture of hydrocarbons and some unburnt fuel
    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    No, coolant and engine oil remains in same amount.
    But the engine heating needle (meter) takes very less time in going from cold state to normal state.
