Ok, guys. The other day on the way to work at 7:45am in the morning, I came to a stop after the car had been running for 10 minutes or so. I smelled something (not burning) and then saw a tad of white smoke started to creep out from under the hood. Could this just be some radiator fluid burning so to speak? The car runs strong and I know it's nothing major, just wanted to check. Thanks.

Today it didn't do it so that was good.

hmm. You would probley have too check it out for sure...but to me it sounds like a waterpump maybe. When mine went out, on a cold day, it would smoke as the antifreeze hit soemthing hot and burned off. look on your waterpump under it and see if there are any signs of antifreeze leaking out. your timing belt cover may be stained also from it. good luck
