I never noticed before but I fired the car up after sitting for a while and saw smoke. I haven't reproduced it, but I'll try later.

BON had something about some bad blocks... I wonder if mine is one.

Hope not!!! Mine is #365. I haven't seen any smoke out of mine yet (unless tire smoke counts, LOL!!!).

smoke after car sitting for while, is sometime caused by leaking valve seals. Check your oil level frequently and if continues take it back to dealer to have it fixed.If its a bad rings it will smoke quite a bit.

I read those blocks with the problems went in trucks & none were delivered to the Mustang plant. Still, it's possible the problem is bigger than Ford thinks.

I tried to reproduce the smoke, but couldn't.

It may have been caused by my throttle application before the engine fired fully.

But I'll keep an eye on it.
