    I have the same car and purchased it with 96 K on it. It was leaking and burning oil. I used Restore when I change the oil it comes in a silver can (looks kinda like a Coors Light can) it helped with the oil leaks & burning. I now have about 190 k on the car and burn about a quart every 3k miles. Try the restore 1st it may be all that you need.

I put oil in the motor and it starts smoking from the muffler it's white smoke


white smoke is steam
blue smoke is oil
black smoke is rich mixture

suspect failed head gasket, so check your oil for water droplets and a white mayonnaise-like deposit on the inside of the filler cap.

When the I turn on the van, It starts to smell like gas and exhaust. Also while smoke is coming out of the muffler.


white smoke signifies water so its a head gasket without a doubt so you have two choices either trade it in quick or have it repaired but you could ask a local mechanic to give it a quick look in case the white smoke is blue in which case its oil

I have 1994 honda civic and theres white grey smoke coming out the muffler


are you sure that it is smoke ? it may be steam which would indicate a blown head gasket or cracked head, usually if the engine is getting too much fuel the smoke is black & if it is burning oil it is blue, if it is steam it will dissipate into the atmosphere very quickly, but blue or black smoke will linger for a while, you need to be certain exactly what it is before you can take any action to repair the problem......hope this helps......cheers.

WHEN IT RAINS THE NEXT DAY WE START IT WHITE SMOKE COMES OUT THE MUFFLER WITH A STRONG SMELL OF GAS.


White smoke (steam) indicates antifreeze burning in the cylinder, or trying to, check again to see if it's blue tinted smoke,(almost looks white, but has a tint of blue, and it lingers in the air a lot longer) check the radiator level, and a compression check will determine the condition of each cylinder, evaluate the spark plugs, (there are charts on line) (this determines if the air fuel mixture it correct) let me know what the out come is.

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).
