Smoke or steam, could be your radiator coolant system malfunctioning, or no coolant.
Or the value for the coolant tube is blocked with shoot and dust.
or the sensor is dirty or failed.

When I start my car smoke comes out of tail pipe for a few seconds water all so coming out


Water and vapor (steam) coming from the tail pipe is normal and will stop after a few miles when everything is hot. That is one of the reasons exhausts need replacing as they rot with rust and is more evident on cars that only do low mileage as the exhaust does not get hot enough to boil off the water and it sits in the pipe slowly rusting it away. What you see as smoke is probably steam and is more evident on cold mornings. If the car is not using oil then I wouldn't worry.

White smoke out of exhaust


Regarding 2001 audi a6 quattro 2.7t....i was driving to work the car was fine then white smoke starting coming from under the hood and tail pipe. i stopped veilce and alot of oil was dripping from front of car. I towed it home and i looked under the hood and there was oil from valve cover gasket. i let the car sit for a few days, had it running again for a good hour and no white smoke was coming out. I removed the valve cover and gaskets are all bad. i want to know can the valve cover gasket leak cause the white smoke to come from exhaust pipe?

White smoke is coming out of the tail pipe when first started and idling but goes away at road speed. when the car is shut off and restarted smoke comes out again


some of the time when a vehicle sits over night or for several hours you will get some water vapor that looks like white smoke until the vehcile warms up the cats on the exhaust system. Double check coolant level make sure it is where it should be if not I would say you have a head gasket problem and you need to have it fixed.

SMOKE PROBLEM


Do me a favor, check you radiator fluid level. Tell me if it is low. If it is.....I hate to say it, but you may have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. You are getting coolant into the combustion chambers.....
