That is bad news & a bad head gasket

White Smoke is coolant in exhaust

Why would you ask if that is normal?

Is that what you see following other vehicles?

You probabily have an exhaust leak. Either that, or it is just fumes being ignited within your exhaust pipes. Some popping is normal, expecially if you have a custom exhaust.
Your dealership should be able to tell you what's wrong

SOURCE: power loss, black smoke

Hi, the problem you are having is going to be with the turbo you will probably find one of the hoses going to the turbo has either come off or has a split in it.
It can be hard to find the split but this is the most likely cause of the problem.
As the car is losing power at high revs then this indicates that either the turbo itself has failed or it could just mean that their is a split in one of the hoses.

A split hose is the most likely cause you will need to inspect every part of all the hoses connected to the turbo. When these pipes get a split they dont then have the correct pressure for the turbo to work at best running conditions this is the smoke your seeing out the back.

a good way to check this is by the amount of oil in the car if your regular topping it up then this would mean looking deeper into the engine to find out why oil is getting into the cylinders but if you are not topping the oil up then this would mean their is no fault with the engine.

So have a good look around the turbo pipes give them a good squeeze the split might only tiny but that is all it takes to cause the problem your having.

If you are unsure at what to look for then its best left to a garage as they would have a good idea where the fault would most likely be.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok.

you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Hi wite smoke from the exoust wen under compresion and then exalarate it is gone . have done the rings ,velve stem seals and turbo kit and stil smoking .


It is common to see white exhaust smoke when first starting a car, especially on cooler days. This is generally steam caused by condensation. As the engine warms up and the condensation dissipates the white exhaust smoke (steam) is no longer seen. If you still see white smoke when the engine is warmed up then you probably have coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Possible causes are warped head, blown head gasket or cracked block. Do you have unexplained coolant loss?
Good luck.

bad shift solenoid in transmission ,and white smoke is because you need head gasket,it is broken and you are mixing fuel with coolant,that will cause bad cat converter soon,and your engine will die soon due oil and water mix ,will kill your crank shaft and cam shaft bearing,(check your oil see if it look like milk shake,that is very bad)

Citroen dispatch with thick black exhaust smoke.


Try blanking off the EGR valve where it mounts on the exhaust manifild, they dont do much usefull but are unreliable and leak ehaist gasses into the inlet, also they take pressure off the torbo leading to over fuelling.

93 LincolnTown Car will not shift above 2nd.


Have you tried taking the car in for maintenance? Usually on most (older) auto transmissions there is a hose coming off of the exhaust manifold or carburetor area that provides the pressure for the transmission fluid. If that hose doesn't have a good seal, your shifting may be difficult and the transmission may not stay in the gear you want it to.
