I was wondering if anyone has had this problem or may have heard of this happening. When I drive my Bullitt for maybe a half or so and when I come to syop for a short amount of time I get a whiff of smoke coming from the back of the hood towards the windshield. I have shut off the engine and looked under the hood and found nothing. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

Did you change your oil lately? I could be that some oil got on the Exaust manifolds and is burning off.


That or something got on them. Other than that I can only think of really bad stuff and I'm sure you don't want to hear that.

Could be a pin hole in just about any "oil" filled pressurized line. Brake, steering, fuel, what ever. Check them all. I had a power steering hose with a pinhole leak when a got a "new" pickup. It was a new hose. And I did not suspect the thing. Finally took it to a garage, and they found it in about five minutes. Replaced the hose and the smoke and stink em went away after a few minutes of driving.

If you have access to a lift then get it up in the air. You should have an answer rather quickly.
