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

White smoke usually indicates low compression pressures. Do a compression test to see if the rings are worn. Check oil consumption too. If the valve stem seals are worn then the engine will use oil too.

What caused white smoke from exhaust?


Generally, white smoke is engine coolant burning. If it only happened for a few seconds, you may have leaked some on the exhaust pipes.
I would check the engine oil and coolant levels with the engine cold, and then look for coolant leaks.

Have a 2003 volkswagen passat 130 4 motion, when starting the engine there is white/ greyish smoke coming out of the exhaust, does not seem to be the head gasket as no signs of this e.g oil and water are...


blue is oil
White is coolant/water It will also smell kind of sweet
black is fuel

If you don't drive your car very many miles or let it sit for days/weeks at a time it is most likely condensation in the exhaust. Take her on a nice 50 mile brisk drive and see if the problem clears up. If it does think condensation if not you will need to dig further.

After driving for about 10miles


Check your coolant level, you may have a head gasket leak sending coolant through the cylinders causing the "smoke".

My 2002 lincoln LS is sputtering white smoke out the exhaust and leaking power steering fluid severily. I can't drive more than 5 miles w/o putting more fluid in.


You can not use the vehicle at all

Repair the P/S Leak

It may be fluid burning off the exhaust
pipes

You don't want white smoke coming from inside
the exhaust system, or you got coolant in the
engine cylinders and big problems.

I have a 2002 Buick Century and soon after I start it white smoke comes out of the exhuast pipe. I don't believe coolant is getting in to the oil, so I was just wondering if I can keep driving the car...


If the white smoke comes out for 15 to 30 seconds your engine is ok. Condensation does build up inside the engine and as well as the exhaust and will burn out in that amount of time. If the white smoke is continuely extracted from the exhaust pipe you do have coolant leaking through the head gasket
