I am here to help, in fact I own a 94 explorer. Most of the exhaust system is steel and here in Southern Canada when even mildly cold (say under 30 degrees F the system will steam for quite a while).

If no water in the oil or vice versa, no great loss of coolant you are most likely ok. How long have you owned the Explorer?

If I have misunderstood your issue let me know in what way.

dont know of any head gasket concerns, usually when the intake manifold leaks it either split and pours out or the heater hose fittings crack and leak. Check the hose connections at the intake and make sure none of the hose clamps have cracked and are leaking

SOURCE: white smoke and oil from tail pipe

When you say: "the inside of her car", I'm going to assume you meant the engine compartment.
It sounds like she filled the air cleaner housing with water, probably the distributor cap as well. Check and dry both out thoroughly, change the oil. This should fix it up.

SOURCE: 1995 ford f350 diesel white smoke or steam coming from oil cap?

Diesel Shop was correct may be blowby or may be to much pressure on your combustion chamber and it could be a head gasket going. I would do a compression check just to be safe. It's simple the cooling system check fits onto where your radiator cap goes and refer to a technical manual on your max pressure on your cooling system. I would do this just to be better off safe than sorry you know.

Remove the cap from the coolant bottle and fill it all the way to the top. Then start the engine. Does the coolant shoot from the bottle?

Hi i hav read about water in oli & i hav 2E Tazz & i have my car for 4 year's & every time when i start my car there come black water out of the exhausts & that is for 4 years now what can be the prob

on initial start up of an engine , water and water vapor coming from an exhaust pipe is normal-- black water is just carbon or soot in the water
it is condensation formed during the combustion process in a cold engine
--very noticeable on cold mornings as spots of water and steam
as the motor warms up , the hotter combustion temperatures and hot exhaust system reduces visible steam to a point where it is not noticeable and the water has boiled off
as to water in the oil--- normal sump oil is light brown when new to dark chocolate to black as it gets old
if there is water in the sump oil the color is normally a grey color and has a condition like curdled milk
to add further for your pre start checks --- the coolant should be a bright green or red --depending on the anti-boil/freeze in use--- but if you have an automatic with a faulty oil cooler in the radiator tank, the coolant color goes to a pink.

Have alot of water leaving tailpipe, what it be?

Results of combustion: Carbon dioxide and water. It is normal to see water coming out the tail pipe when it's cold, until the exhaust system warms up.

When I start my car smoke comes out of tail pipe for a few seconds water all so coming out

Water and vapor (steam) coming from the tail pipe is normal and will stop after a few miles when everything is hot. That is one of the reasons exhausts need replacing as they rot with rust and is more evident on cars that only do low mileage as the exhaust does not get hot enough to boil off the water and it sits in the pipe slowly rusting it away. What you see as smoke is probably steam and is more evident on cold mornings. If the car is not using oil then I wouldn't worry.

I think my car blew its head gasket,but theirs no water in oil,if idling temperature stay normal,fans do come on when idling for long.I`ve changed spark plugs,plug wires,thermostat and heat sensor unit.As...

white smoke from the exhaust and overheating would almost certainly mean a blown head gasket.
the head gasket has gone between a cylinder and a cooling channel so exhaust gasses can get in to the cooling system resulting in the boiling and water from the cooling system is getting into the cylinder resulting in the white smoke (actually steam) from the exhaust.
the exhaust manifold is a separate issue that can be replaced when the head gasket is repaired.

Leaking anti-freeze and the car smokes

Sounds like a blown head gasket. Look to see if your oil looks like toffee, or if you have steam coming from your tail pipe when the engine is at normal temperature or if you have a misfire. If you buy a tin of radiator sealing crystals you can cut the water consumption down and they will sometimes temporarily seal a leaking head gasket. At least it will give you time to get it sorted properly.

White smoke out rear tail pipe and water or black liquid leaking out muffler under truck

Assuming this is happening under normal operating temperatures, it has blown head gasket written all over it. White smoke is steam and the only way that is coming from your exhaust once it's warmed up is that the head gasket has blown and started leaking coolant into the combustion chamber. You'll need to take your vehicle to a shop and have it repaired.
