Pink fluid? Would that be transmission fluid? You have cooling lines running from the transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator. Could that be the escaping fluid? Could the fluid have got on the exhaust and burned, and caused all the smoke? Or did the white smoke come out of the exhaust?
Check your fluids. Do you have pink coolant? Find and fix the leak, refill the lost fluid, and go from there. Good luck, drew.

SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: Smoke out of exhaust and loss of power

this sounds like antifreeze entering the crankcase..blown head gasket .warped head . cracked the block . pray it's only a blown head gasket and get it checked for cracks and straightness with a new head gasket might be all that's needed. the high pitched whining noise was probly your waterpump spinning dry . might need a new water pump to (where is your coolant lvl and what is the strength of it for the cold weather)
and a few exaust doughnuts wearing thin letting smoke out in the engine compartment not healthy to breath you should get it looked at.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Focus ZTS engine whine/ noise

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.

Mercedes c200 wont start lots of new parts white smoke comes out but says low pressure diesel rail replaced injector rail and two injector switches still wont start


WHITE SMOKE occurs when raw diesel comes through the exhaust completely intact and unburned. Some causes of this include
  • Faulty or damaged injectors
  • Incorrect injection timing (could be a worn timing gear or damaged crankshaft keyway).
  • Low cylinder compression (eg caused by leaking or broken valves, piston ring sticking, cylinder and/or ring wear, or cylinder glaze)

2002 Honda Accord makes loud exhaust sounding noise


The O2 sensor could have come loose, also look around the area of the O2 sensor for any cracks in the pipe, look for black coloring on the pipe, this will indicate the leak area. As exhaust smoke is blackish and will coat the leaking area.

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.

Honda odyssey started up, engine sounded loud while in park, Hit gas, engine reved, crackeling noise snd thick white smoke from left did of hood. ???


Check under hood for melted wires, sounds like the water pump may have or did fail. This usually will cause overheating. MAKE SURE to see if you have melted wires or parts under the hood.

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

98 gs300 loud screeching noise that last for about 5-10 seconds


The only four rotating items under the hood are
engine
power steering pump
A/C compressor
and smog emission pump.
==== I would check the fluid level on the power steering first. Check for pink fluid leak on the ground,
==== Check the A/C system with the wheel turn to one side and APPLY ALL LOADS.
Example: high beam on,A/C max,radio on and deforster on.
This will give you system a stress test.
All eyes on the pully and locate to part that generate the loud screeching noise.
My bet is on the power steering pump.

Please post more info on the comment window.
I will follow up on it.
