Well thankyou for your compliment! Possibly could have been cleaning products maybe give it a couple of days and report back anything else you see / smell. Where abouts in PA did you live??

Uh... it was probably steaming because Intrepids are HOT! :D

Seriously though... I had an antifreeze leak once and the antifreeze was dripping onto the hot exhaust and steaming out of the louvres by the windshield wipers and around the edges of the hood. Maybe check into that?

And welcome to di.net, by the way... looking forward to seeing some pictures of your R/T.

If theres a problem with the vehicle, Why would you want to run it hard? You shouldnt risk making the problem worse if you don't know what it is. Fix the problem first.

Was it raining? I have seen steam come out of the front of my car when I came to a stop in a rain, I presume from the rain hitting the hot radiator.

so where is it smoking from? The exhaust pipe? What color is the smoke? If it's blue smoke, you are burning oil. White smoke could be coolant or nothing. It is cold so it's not unusal to see white smoke from condensation and stuff getting burned off. Nothing wrong there. Check your coolant make sure the coolant level is within specs and keep monitor it. If you don't see any level drop over days, you got nothing to worry about.
