Hi Jeremy .

Grey is unburnt fuel comming out the exhaust. this could be due to bad fuel injectors , bad timing ,fuel pump out of time.

When the engine is warm doese she run good or still very under powered .

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

runs really lumpy and under powered

Jeremy .

This could be a head gasket issue but to be sure a block test should be done , this is where the coolant system is check for exhaust gas in the system .
If this test positive then you have a blown headgasket . when a headgasket blows this does not always mean you have oil in coolant or coolant in your oil .

If test show negitive have the timing checked , injectors, and injection pump tested .
