The smoke must come from a coolant leak close to the radiator, or a fin crack in the radiator itself. Check all hoses and clamps, idle hot and look for smoke. You may have a heater core corrosion issue, watch close for coolant leaks on the floor mats inside, all of this may be connected and look for leaks where you park. Just a small amount can produce smoke, open the hood when it smokes and look.

Why does my 2000 ford taurus have white smoke coming from the grill some times not all the time and the car is not overheating. what is wrong?


The only thing which can cause white smoke is steam, and given radiator is in front, may be a small hole due to road pebble penetrating radiator core. Keep eye on water level and engine temperature as you don't want to run and overheat engine ever.

White smoke under hood but not over heating. what could this be?


The rubber smell leads me to believe a coolant hose is leaking and getting ready to burst. Better get it fixed immediately!

Started my 2002 ford taurus this morning just fine. Let it run for about 15 minutes before leaving fo work. When I came out my car was idling very rough and white smoke would come out the back then...


Have it checked at your local garage. White smoke from the exhaust system.....normally means a cracked cylinder head gasket. I would check the oil dipstick to ensure that there is no coolant in the oil pan. Coolant in the oil pan could mean a cracked cylinder head......a more costly repair.
