SOURCE: my truck blows white smoke

Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck

SOURCE: smoke and water from tailpipe

That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps

Yes, the best way to determine if you've blown a head gasket, it to use the diagnos # 4 gas analyser or smog test analyser- (the tube that goes up the tail pipe), place the wand near the radiator. if the wand reads finds CO in the cooling system ,100% blown head gasket

SOURCE: 2004 Excursion 6.0 diesel blows intermitent white smoke

I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

I overfilled my 07 525i with oil and now the car is smoking heavy white smoke out the tail pipe and shaking, could I have damaged my car and what should I do?


drain the oil and refill to much oil is not good for seals a could produce to much pressure when the car is running which could blow seals and have them start to leak

1993 Mazda Miata runs perfect in everyway except that it just started blowing white/grey smoke from tailpipe, only happens when it is first started and cold engine


could be 2 reasons.
1. start of a head gasket leak to the combustion chamber. Will become more white and for longer period as it gets worse.
2. oil rings are worn and starting to pass oil to combustion chamber. They seal up once engine is worn.

1990 Corolla started shaking after I accelerated rapidly (gunned the engine)


White smoke coming out of exhaust is water vapor. Blue is oil burning and black is carbon from unburned fuel.
U have water or coolant leaking into your combustion cylinders - not a good thing. Probably blown head gasket.

Check your oil - if it like a brown mud then the coolant has also gotten into the lubrication system.

2005 toyota corolla blowing smoke


Blowing black smoke means fuel mixture is too rich, possible choke is stuck partically closed.
Blowing white smoke especially driving off the traffic lights indicates either worn valve guides or worn piston rings. Valve guides require the head to be removed to replace valve guides.
Replacing piston rings means a major engine repair. It maybe better to get a reconditioned motor than replace worn piston rings because other worn engine parts should be replaced at the same time.

The car is not driving, blowing white smoke, and shaking very bad? So what should do


white smoke (alot) usually means water/antifreeze getting into firing chamber- head gasket(most likely) or a cracked head/block (less likely)- check oil dipstick- if oil is "milky" definite leak somewhere

White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.


White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

After washing my 1989 corolla white smoke started


If the smoke is coming from the tailpipe and will not stop you have a cracked head. this can be caused by a hot engine sprayed with cold water. if it was just for a few seconds it smoked and i don't do it any more you are most likely ok. it is rare to bust a head that way but it can happen.

good luck

My Toyota Corolla XL 1996 model is belching heavy white smoke. I have just changed the oil and also the spark plug. What do you think is the problem?


white smoke usually indicates the engine is burning oil or its burning coolant. when the engine is cold remove the radiator cap and start the vehicle, if it immediately begins to blow air and or coolant from the radiator you most likely have a blown head gasket, if not then remove the oil cap and feel for air coming out. if it blows kinda like a hair dryer then you most likely have a piston ring issue and you are burning oil. either way you may be looking at major surgery to repair.
