Any info on what it could be?
Expert:  Andy replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for the info . Can you tell me if you are using any coolant or oil ? Are you having to add any coolant or any oil on a regular basis ? If not , then this smoke is likely fuel coming out of stack when ecm is trying to do an active regen without driver assistance . Do you have any faults in memory ? And is there a low power complaint with the engine ?

No low power or coolant or oil loss. The triangle light comes on everyday.
Expert:  Andy replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for the info . The triangle light is a caution lamp .

Expert:  Andy replied 2 months ago.

When the caution lamp is on , if you look in the lcd display , it will tell you what the caution lamp is on for ... it will either say abs module , check trans , warn engine , etc....
