I Have a Ford Taurus 2006 when you start this car it dies and I noticed blueish smoke comes from the exhaust and the fuse blows out

Blue smoke on startup is a sign of worn valve stem seals. But worn seals wouldn't cause it to die after starting. Check the engine coolant temp sensor. Take a look at these known issues for Taurus

Blueish white smoke comeing from exhaust

Hello There

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.

You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

White smoke from engine

Coolant leaking on engine and burning

Hi Joseph, I'm glad to help!

When engine get a lot of miles on them the seals get hard and bridle and allows oil you slip by and it goes out the exhaust in at cloud of smoke. Here's a way to see if it is you "Valve Seals". When your driving it usually clears up and you have no smoke. Here's what you need to do after driving the car and it has cleared up, pull into a parking lot and let it sit and idle for 3 minutes. If a cloud of smoke comes out of the tailpipe when you take off, then you have bad "Valve Seals" and they will need to be replaced. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Joseph.

91 tempo run rough with white exhaust

If you are sure it is white smoke and the car overheats or looses water,The head gasket is bad.
Or It's valve seals or rings smokes (but the smoke would have a blueish tint)

Blueish smoke from the exhaust

Blueish smoke is probably excess fuel. If this is the case, the exhaust should smell gassy. I'm thinking that one of the injectors is leaking...something injector cleaner wouldn't solve (you may have to buy a new injector if that's the case). I would check the spark plugs to see if one looks different than the others, that way you can narrow it down. I took my injectors for my porsche to to have my injectors checked and found that a couple of them were leaking so bad they couldn't be fixed. If you send in your injectors to him and any of them are leaky/unrepairable, he won't charge you for them. :)

White smoke out the exhaust

You will need to check head gasket. Please check the oil for coolant (milky deposition or presipitation). Also check if you loosing coolant and if coolant has oil in it.
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
Good Luck
