Smoke in Engine Bay!

I've just replaced my rocker cover gasket. Fired up engine to make sure all was ok to find that there's smoke coming from the bottom of the engine bay!

Made a quick video to show what I could see..
(Sorry about poor quality, my N95's getting repaired, AGAIN)


Any ideas?

Re: Smoke in Engine Bay!

Something's burning!

Oh... okay then. Probably when you did the work you lost some oil Or WD40 etc. down the front of the block onto the exhaust manifold. It'll burn off then that's that.

Nothing to worry about if it stops after 3 or 4 minutes and is then gone forever.
