I have a 2002 Hyundai accent and when I take off after the car has been idling white smoke comes out the exhaust and the engine ticks sometimes when it smokes. What causes this?


White smoke is usually a sign of a coolant leak into the combustin chamber unless it is just a little bit on a cold day. Check your coolant level when the car is cold and see it you are low on coolant.

Fix seized engine


White smoke is an indication of water in the engine. Like when you see a car with white smoke from the exhaust on a cold morning, it's heat moisture condensate in the exhaust (normal), and is being heated and converted to steam as the engine blows hot exhaust out. To test if it's water in the engine, there are two likely indications, (1) the motor oil will be milky and white, or (2) you can remove the spark plug and see if any cylinder sprays water mist when the engine is turned over. In either case the problem is a bad gasket, maybe head gasket (repairable), or a cracked block (big $$$ fix). If engine will not turn over, there could be two causes (assuming the battery and starting system is good); (1) a cylinder is full of water and hydraulically locked keeping the engine from turning over (removing spark plugs should relieve the pressure and allow you to turn the engine over (* you'll see mist or water coming out spark plug holes), or (2) the engine is seized, therefore the previous troubleshooting is unnecessary, engine replacement is necessary. Best of luck resolving this problem.

White smoke coming from exhaust


If white smoke is coming from exhaust, it sounds like a cracked head or a leaky head gasket. Please take to repairman ASAP or lose the engine.

My 1995 Hyundai Accent has been blowing white smoke, and I need to know if it would be worth the price to fix it?


White smoke is a blown head gasket, the engine has to come half apart, it's not a cheap fix. If it's a high milage car I wouldn't.( it'll possibly cost you over $1500.00 to fix)

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and white smoke at startup and now severe white smoke on occasion when driving. 16k miles, I drive about 600 miles a month.


White smoke during startup is indicative of a blown head gasket and/or cracked cylinder head..
Have the cylinders pressure tested to verify.
Do not use engine additives to try and stop the leak. They do not work.

Thanks for using FixYa - please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue.

2001 Hyundai Accent 167,000 miles


At 167,000 miles there will be wear on the piston bores and rings this means you will be burning off oil even during normal running

Standing test is to make sure that the car is in park and get someone to really rev the engine for a few seconds let it die down and do it again repeat this 6 or so times and I bet you will see a thin blue smoke coming from the muffler

Engine burning smoke from underside, temperature gauge going up hyundai accent 1997


Smoke could be caused by a leak from head gaskets, replace head gasket, k. Temperature increase could be caused by a defective thermostat or a slightly plugged radiator. Clean radiator and thermostat.

2001 Hyundai Accent. Heating and stalls


If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,
