If the smoking doesnt go away, it very well could need a new pcm(very common for them to hang the injectors).

If it goes away, it's probibly condensation which is normal, especially in winter.

Does the exhaust smell like gas?

It's also a 94 which means, like me, the valve seals might be leaking and letting oil blow by. Motor honey, .5 quarts of tranny fluid in oil etc. work well to help keep that problem in check. The only REAL fix is to do a PI swap.

I cant really imagine a scenario where PS fluid is leaking from your mufflers. Bluish white smoke is a sign of oil burning in the engine. Also remember that when you're turning, the water in the muffler is moving more so it will come out faster. Condensation is perfectly normal.

Blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, white smoke is water.
