Head gaskets.
The intake has no coolant passage.
A small amount of coolant is seeping into the combustion chamber after the engine is shut off, upon retsart later it puffs the coolant out, then clears up after a few seconds.
You can pull the plugs and look at them , you will probably see the coolant residue (color) on them.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
