That can be caused on most vehicles by one of two potential problems: 1. cylinder "washdown", in which one or more injector leaks a little, dropping raw fuel into the cylinder. The fuel picks dilutes the oil that normally resides on the cylinder walls and around the piston and rings. Next time the engine starts, the oil is burned along with the excess fuel. The condition can cause a little extra cylinder wear whenever the engine starts, and should be repaired to prevent future problems. 2. Valve guide oil leaking, usually caused by hardened valve guide seals leaking a small amount of oil down the intake valve stem and it gets into the fuel mix. Typically, leaking valve seals will burn whenever you step on the accellerator after slowing down, or going down a hill with your foot off the accellerator. It usually indicates a worn valve guide AND hardened/damaged valve guide seal.

White smoke will come out of a vehicle's exhaust system when the engine is cold. This is because of condensation build up in the engine and exhaust. The white smoke should go away after several minutes of idling. If you engine is always blowing white smoke, regardless of temperature, then it might be burning oil. Check the levels of your engine oil and your transmission fluid (if you have an automatic) and have the engine compression checked for blow-by.

Yesterday you just had your oil changed in your 2007 mustang GT This morning a puff of white smoke came out the exhaust as you started it No smoke afterwards Why did it do that?

White smoke in the exhaust means water is being burned in the engine. A small puff of white smoke the first time you start a car in the morning is normal. Water condenses in the intake, and engine and when you firsts start the engine it burns off producing a puff of white smoke. It is nothing to concern yourself with unless the car is constantly blowing white smoke.
