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.

White smoke indicates water being burned. Also the ticking means your loosing oil. You most likely have a blown head gasket.

SOURCE: White smoke coming out of the tail pipe .

White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder...If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
Good luck..i hope this helps.... please rate me a fixya

When I start engine engine noise or knock, white smoke comes out exhaust,


It is actually steam. The head gasket has failed and the knock is either the pistons trying to compress liquid or the oil has been thinned out from the coolant.

When my nissan maxima 2005 is runnig little white smoke is coming from tail pipe


If you have never experience the white smoke before and I am under the assumption that you are the original owner, and depending on your service record of changing the oil as scheduled then the only conclusion I can come up with is the following. You have a very high mileage vehicle and there is a little oil burning. Secondly will be there is a crack in which cooling liquid is entering the engine and making that smoke like that. Good Luck!

2004 Cadillac Escalade knocking noise


Make sure oil level is adequate.

Also, this could be an exhaust leak that is being closed as the manifold and/or block heats up.
