Sounds like you blown head gasket,white smoke indicates steam,so there is water getting into engine,this is caused by blown head gasket or crack in cylinder head.

I have a 1990 2.2 subaru legacy it is either burning oil or losing it somewhere but no puddles head gaskets seem to be fine doesn't overheat and no water in the oil blows smoke on startup


I would check for a defective PCV valve. If it has not been changed, I have seen cases where they suck the oil right out of the engine. Depending on the mileage, I wouldn't be concerned over a small puff of smoke when starting the engine. Thanks.

I have a Z24 Cavalier and theres white smoke coming out the exhaust and timing chain makes a lil rattle noise when I first start it in the morning and tends to stall until it reaches the temp of 165ish...


So if it's not consuming oil and you are SURE to fill the radiator to PROVE it's not burning coolant ... then the other suspects are head gasket and .... A puff of smoke upon start-up could be caused by valve guide seals allowing some oil to leak down into the cylinders while the car is parked and not running. This would be pretty common on a nine year old car and should not, in most cases, be cause for concern - See more at: http://community.cartalk.com/discussion/2280708/white-smoke-from-exhaust-upon-cold-start#sthash.05fuptIx.dpuf

If it's blue-white then What you might be seeing is oil burn-off from leaking valve guide seals. The next time you have the oil/filter changed, have a high mileage oil installed. - See more at: http://community.cartalk.com/discussion/2294478/white-smoke-coming-from-the-tail-pipe#sthash.jVo0zDhw.dpuf

Sorry but white smoke is a sign of water getting into 1 or more cylinders.I would pull the oil dipstick and see if it looks like a creamy color.If it does then you may have a blown head gasket or a crack in the engine block somewhere.

Excessive exhaust smoke on the first start of the day


Sounds like the valve guides are leaking oil into the cylinders, or there is a coolant leak somewhere. Usually white smoke is coolant but could be oil.
Are you adding either fluid often ?

Big puff of white smoke at start up after sitting for several hours.


white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.
nest time try and smell the white smoke see if it smells sweet?
if it does its antifreeze.
and also black smoke is fuel (like a leaky injector )
hope this helps
