Smoke from front right engine
I own a 04 wrx, stock motor with 130k on it, and when my engine heats up to normal operating temperature it starts to smoke when I come to a stop. I if I sit long enough, the smoke will come out of my scoop and front right hood area. Now, I do have a split in my right cv boot and there is grease that has been flung out from it, I think it's from that. I have a new one on the way. My question is, could it be from somewhere else? Cause I can't pinpoint the exact cause of the smoke and burning smell. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.. Anyone else have a similar problem? Thanks!

The grease from the boot can smell bad. It's probably the issue. Fix it and clean everything real well and see if it persists.

An easy way to check to see if its the grease is after your done driving park and let the engine idle for a few minutes and see if the smoke stops.

Good luck.

sounds similar to the symptoms that preceded the replacement of my turbo...

Thanks. Hopefully the cv boot will fix it.
