Why would my 2015 ram eco diesel blow a lot of white smoke out of the tail pipes

White smoke on a diesel is either a blown seal in the cooling system or lack of heat when it is cold. If you are in a cold climate the glow plugs should come on and heat the cylinders before it starts. If this is not the case then antifreeze / coolant is leaking into the cylinders from the water jacket, this could be a cylinder sleeve or blown head gasket.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s

One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Sounds like a head gasket....if there's white smoke fcomming from the tail pipe, that's your issue. Usually a 1500.00 fix

Missing 2 cylinders, no heat, oil leak. 300zx HELP ME PLEASE

If you have no heat at all and its smoking white out the tail pipes then you have a blown headgasket. That is why you aren't running on 2 cylinders.

Check you coolant level to see if you have a blown head gasket. The tick is from not having enough oil in the engine. Oil always leaks from these but not too often its the rear main, just depends.

Does it smoke white out the tail pipes?
