It's possible that engine coolant is making it's way into the cylinders (in other words a blown head gasket). I had a Pontiac that blew a head gasket, it was blowing white clouds out the tailpipe. It's a pretty involved job to repair but it is doable by a backyard mechanic. You'll want to check for oil in the coolant and coolant in the crankcase oil. Also do a compression & leakdown test on the cylinders.

When you say you just changed the cooling system what exactly was done and why? Was the coolant flushed and were you getting any symptoms of a problem (such as the engine overheating, etc.)?

Have your mechanic check the car for a leaking head gasket; in the early stages white smoke - coolant being burned - will show up; you would not see any leaks, as the leak would be INTERNAL; driving with a defective headgasket will for sure cause more severe damage to the engine!

I have problems with my the Mercedes A170 CDI 2001 (W168) automatic transmission. There is high pressure in the cooling system (hoses are hard) when started the engine and coolant level fluctuates up and...


To have high pressure in the coolant system you have compression pressure escape into the coolant system. If you simply replaced the head gaskets without checking for cracks or having the head machined to eliminate warped head then you have pretty much wasted your money as the problem still exists. You will have to pull the head again and have it checked out. Put a coolant system pressure tester in place of the radiator cap and start the engine and see if there is a rise in pressure on the gauge.

White smoke mercedes benz 2008 gl-class 320


Seek out another mechanic. White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most of the time this is caused by a blown head gasket. A loss of coolant with no apparent leak, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, oil level overfull, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator are other symptoms of a blown gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you have this diagnosed and repaired. A compression test will verify this. Serious engine damage will occur if you indeed have an internal leak so make sure one way or the other.

Exhaust smoke white


You could have a head gasket problem, Check your oil level and see if it's high and also check it for antifreeze. If there is antifreeze miked with your oil it would seam mikly and check your antifreeze level too if it's gone down. Good luck and keep in mind that antifreeze is corrosive the internal bearing in your engine.
