Vapour/Smoke from Exhaust at Idle
I've had my Civic 06 1.8 ES for nearly a week now and last night after driving for about twenty minutes or so I hit traffic and saw a reasonably noticeable amount of vapour/possibly thin amount of white smoke from the right hand exhaust, I couldn’t tell whether it was coming from the left exhaust or if it just happened to be the wind direction making it appear to be the driver’s side exhaust.
It was only noticeable when idle and when starting to accelerate away, It wasn't exactly billowing out and hiding the cars behind me by any means and couldn't be seen again until I was stopped in traffic.
I has been cold and damp for the last week where I am so it could just be vapour but I'm really not sure if this is usual for Civic's from 2006 onwards, especially as I had been driving a good twenty minutes already.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, it looks to me very much like vapour as opposed to smoke but it was constant when idle and lit up by the car behind me.
