Question about 1995 Kia Sportage

White "smoke" spewing from my Kia.

White smoke spews from the back end of my Kia. It had very little power, and stalled on me when I was driving. This has not happened to me previously, however the car has had a pretty rough idle this past week.

Blown head gasket for sure, check your radiator to see how much coolant you're missing to be completely sure. the oil may or may not be milky but that would be a dead giveaway. having the same problems.. i guess theres a reason why this car was 300 dollars.
also, after you replace the head gasket pressure test the cooling system to make sure your radiator, heater core, and water pump are still good. a blown head gasket can overpressurize the cooling system and blow out these components.
I guess this is a pretty common problem for these cars

Check your oil, you may have a blown head gasket. Check the oil too see if it has antifreeze in it

White smoke out the tail pipe is a sign of water! Black smoke is excess carbon, dark grey is oil.

Possible that you have a leaking head gasket that is getting water into the cylinders?

2001 Kia Sportage goes dead while driving plus gas spews out when refueling

Need a little more info: Is it a V-6? Does it just die at random times? Kia has had problems with crank shaft position sensors. The vehicle will just die and may restart immediately or take several minutes till it will restart.

Car spews a lot of white smoke i assume its steam from coolant or antifreeze from a cracked head gasket,was told it needed spark wires and plugs and brakes,

no you cannot judge on that before checking what the problem is
have you checked what how the is oil level in because when the smoke is white that means it is oil
if it is black that is gaz .accordingly you have an oil leak from valves where the upstroke forces oil into combustion chamber where it is burned and causes white smoking

My kia puts out blue white smoke when i start it in the morning and sometimes during the day when i start it. Its a Kia Soerento GLS 2.5 and it seems to be using oil through this problem.

burning oil
probably valve guides worn a little .when stopped a slight amount of oil gets on pistons and burns off when engine started hence the smoke

I have an 04 that is starting to give me trouble. Last week I had a problem with no power above 2K rpms. I could hear the whin of the fule pump so changed the filters. Fixed the noise and power issue and...

Put a product called "Heet" in it to burn the water in the gas. The white smoke is usually a sign of water in the fuel. Also check your new fuel filter, there was a recall on Peruator brand filters. The problem was in how the connections were made for the fuel coupling.
