Blowing white smoke out of exhaust pipe


White smoke is usually a sign for a bad head gasket. How much white smoke is coming out? Also, are you losing coolant and can't find a drip under the engine?

I have a nissan sentra eccs with automatic transmission 1993 model, the exhaust is releasing a lot of white smoke, is this normal?


sorry but if you have white smoke coming out your exhaust, most likely you blew a head gasket. antifreeze is leaking into your exhaust and out the tailpipe. check your engine oil dipstick and see if the oil is a milky color. your local auto parts store sells a temp fix for it just ask for a head gasket sealer. good luck

How white? I would get a can of carbcleaner and spray a little here and there around the intake area to see if you have a vacuum leak. If the smoke is real white like the clouds the you may have an internal coolant leak to a cyl.

Misfires in Cyl. 5 and 6, after changing problem continued


white smoke indicates the engine is burning antifreeze, you could have head gasket issue, if thats the case the antifreeze is getting in the cylinders and the engine is burning it. could be a stuck exhaust valve( i doubt it). find out from ford what that code indicates, that would be a better clue than tearing into the motor

White smoke from exhaust


not sure what your question is regarding but white smoke coming out of the exhaust usually means water is getting into the cylinder. If this is the case then you never know when the motor is going to go so just do whatever you need to do as quicky and cool as possible
