Every time I start up my 2020 2.0, I have white smoke and gurgling from the exhaust. Is this normal? Thx

If it goes away, yes. That is just condensation from the exhaust system cooling down after the last time you drove. If it persists after the engine warms up, you might have a problem...

If it persists you could have a head issue.

It will also be more noticeable in cold weather if you are in a cooler climate. Not sure why your other wranglers didn't do this as it is very commonplace, especially on vehicles with cats.

Unless my daughter and her roommate are using your exhaust pipe as their latest bong, Jo's jeep is probably right.

LOL.

I see you are in VT. I lived there for 10 years. Went to UVM, lots of weed.

P.S. I was gonna make a similar joke but vaping instead of bong.

The other vehicles NEVER had this amount. Once this goes away after warming up, than the minimal amount is present.

Mine does the same. New 2020 with 700 miles. Dealer tells me it’s normal and breaking in. I get smoke when it’s colder outside but this seems like a lot. Only last about 2 minutes and then goes away.
