Regarding my tc55da, the smoke coming from the crankcase vent tube is gray, does not dissipate but creates a cloud of smoke around the tractor, it happens as soon as tractor starts and remains the same, hot or cold. There is no oil in the coolant, there is no water in the oil. When I remove the oil fill cap while running there is a huge pulsating escape of smoke under pressure and an very audible upper engine clattering noise which is not noticeable with oil fill cap on. ....
