    They said I might have blown the tubo's. The white smoke is like a smoke screen coming out of the tail pipe heavy. How costly could this become? what are some other options like can it be fixed without the tubo's and run normally?



    Many thanks FB

If the white smoke is in the morning,only then it is valve seals and if it is through out the day as your driving the vehicle then the engine need over houling,(rings metal and main bearing in the engine need to be relace,including valve seal , top gasket,botom gasket and oil seal for proper perfomance.

    thanx for the rating, how ever such problem normally ocur as a result of lack of proper maintenace by car owners, non changing of engine oil as situpulated by manufacturer, and leagage of radiator which will bring about heating every now and then.

Hey my retarded brother over filled my car by 3lt yes I said 3lt anyways I drained out all oil filled it back to prop lev and it is now spewing white smoke out tAilpipe I am pretty sure there


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?

04 chevy impala has white smoke coming from the exhaust but no leaking


white smoke is caused by water or coolant entering cylinders, if in over flow it will look like a chocolate milk shake. check on oil dipstick to see if you can see traces of water or anti - freeze in the oil. if you see white smoke coming from tail pipe that smoke means that your car has a leaking cylinder-head gasket or a cracked head gasket. If there is just a leak in the gasket, the problem should be relatively easy and inexpensive to fix, but if the problem is a cracked head gasket, chances are the repair will be a lot more complicated and expensive. If the problem is a leaking head-gasket cylinder you will see white smoke, because the faulty gasket is allowing air and fuel to enter the cooling system. As this mixture burns, white smoke is produced and exits through your tailpipe. If you are familiar with the location of the cylinder head gasket you can check it yourself, otherwise take the car to your mechanic and ask him to check the gasket for damage. may not be but just check it out! if its water or anti-freeze, you will smell a sweet smell coming from tailpipe. good-day ! most of the costs today are labor which is very expensive.

I have white smoke coming from my tailpipe in my 01 chevy impala, also engine coolant is leaking on the right side of the radiator where a little white smoke comes out if the car is running for about 10...


I have an 01 Impala 3.8 engine. At first start-up white smoke is seen, smells like raw gas, and tail pipe is black as coal. Fuel milage isn't good either. Would the regulator be bad?

Yes, the best way to determine if you've blown a head gasket, it to use the diagnos # 4 gas analyser or smog test analyser- (the tube that goes up the tail pipe), place the wand near the radiator. if the wand reads finds CO in the cooling system ,100% blown head gasket
