You ether have a coolant leak or one of these are the problem thermastat,fan clutch,water pump,radiator, try this start car when it reachs normal temp open hood and pinch the top radiator hose if it is hot water is flowing thermastat is good now open radiator with a towel slowly while it is runing see if the water is moving if it is you water pump and radiator are good, now at some point in this time you should have heard the fan get loud if not your fan clutch is not work it mounts to the front of your water pump and is normal to go out because they lose about 250rpm a year which does not give them much of a life, dont forget to check your heater hoses they could be leaking

I have a 2000 Crown Vic and occasionally there is white smoke coming from drivers side(closest to me) just minutes into driving. Its only noticeable while at a light or when parked and I have just cut


after driving the car to normal temp...go drive around and when you do see smoke like that, pull over into parking lot (leave the car running) and look underneath the car and hood...see where the smoke coming from. Then you would know the answer.

Interesting.
White smoke is usually burning coolant.
You should be loosing a fluid, something has to be burning to make the smoke.
It could be a very slight drip onto the hot exhaust manifold or pipe if it is only happening from under the hood.

I have a 94 crown vic that blows blueish white smoke sumtimes on acceleration but then it goes away, it doesnt do it on start up and it runs fine otherwise


If there is a blue tint you are burning oil. You may have worn rings, or you may have one ring that is stuck and letting oil by. There may also be hardened valve stem seals. As old as it is try switching to full synthetic oil after doing an engine clean. It will not burn.

Hope this helps

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm


Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.

Smoke is coming out from under my hood...checked antifreeze and oil so it fine


white smoke usualy tells about a leakage in the cooling. check that. dont forgett to refill. get it repaired or DIY. attention: could be really hot.

if it smells like fuel, a fuel line is broken. then dont drive any more since it can catch fire.

if the smoke is not white, go to the repair shop instantly.
