If the truck is loosing power while blowing smoke, Its probably the egr valve. Cleaned mine to get by for awhile, but it only lasted about 3 months. Ford has a new and improved one now to solve the problem.

SOURCE: blows lots of black smoke if back fire knocking smell of fuel in

are you losing coolant? ford had a huge problem with that engine,and the coolant eats the main bearings.
the defect is in the EGR valve setup.

SOURCE: 98 explorer sputtering and white smoke from tail

Hi Dre,

I hope you don't shoot the messenger, It sound like a blown head gasket.

The white smoke is water in with the combustion.
The rough running is either no compression or coolant in with the fuel/air mix.

Things to check to confirm.

  • When cool, take off radiator cap. is fluid low? Get everyt one clear and start the engine. Does coolant erupt out of the radiator?
  • Run a compression check on all cylinders
  • While the plugs are out, inspect cylinders (flashlight) for water.
  • Check oil for a milky color
The little bit of good news is it still runs. So secondary damage hasn't occurred yet. You need to get this addressed quickly.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of this type of news.
Mike

My 2005 gmc canyon just started blowing smoke out tail pipe but it doesnt do it everytime i start it. is this bad?


Possibly a leak in the head gasket. Take out the plugs and see if they are water wet. Run a compression check.

White smoke coming out tail pipe


That might be steam, check to see if you are loosing coolant if is loosing coolant but it doesn't leak onto the ground you could have a bad head gasket. It doesn't do it with the clutch in because there is no load on the engine.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

It blows white smoke out the tail pipe when i start it


You must have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a local shop confirm this for you as it is a very expensive repair.

White smoke coming out of the tail pipe after taking off.


White smoke continuously blowing out from the tail pipe ? If it is only at the cold position it is normal, if it is always coming out it means oil consumed & compression is week. spark plug frequently needed ? If plug frequently shorted u need to overhaul or need to add oil treatment for increase viscosity.

White smoke?


It's just condensation. Water will also drip from the pipe.

The colder it is, the worse the 'smoke' will be. I was in Vernal, Utah earlier this week, drove through -18*F weather, my truck never quit blowing white smoke.

And NO IT IS NOT YOUR HEADGASKET
