The Motor is Burning oil. This is the cause of the White Smoke. The noise is Possibly a Lifter inside the Motor. The only way to get these to stop is to Rebuild that Motor at this Point.

Black smoke coming exhaust

Too much fuel is the usual problem.
One of the injectors may be stuck open, or some other fuel leak into the engine.

Hi have white smoke and miss at start up

White smoke could be as simple as condensation in exhaust from sitting overnight. I'd be more concerned if white smoke continued when warmed up. The "miss" could be a bunch of things... When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including fuel filter? I would start there, makes a good "ground zero" reference point and see if miss is still evident. You might also consider running a good fuel system cleaner w/next tank full of gas. Especially in winter months when temps fluctuate, condensation forms in tank. (water) Spark plugs & water don't get along well.

Smoke coming out below moter white

Does your vehicle sound a little bit louder then it used to when it was newer?
The white smoke is probably coming from the exhaust system, which you may have a gasket or seal gone on, which happens within time to every vehicle.

I have number 2 and 3 cyl miss fire. Also white smoke comming from exhaust.

if u have white smoke in exhaust along with two cyl misfiring that are next to each other more than likely u have a blown head gasket (the white smoke means u have coolant going into the exhaust )

I have a 1994 chevy s-10 blazer vin w with a 4.3 l vortech its white smoking with loss of power and is missing very bad

white smoke is caused by coolant mixing into your combustion camber which is burning through your exhaust. More than likely a leaking head gasket is at fault

White Smoke that smells liek fuel, but not overheating

you're probably burning coolant. headgasket, cracked or warped head, intake manifold or gasket, or cracked block are your sources. Take it to a care car service to have it checked. Whatever it is, it's hard to diagnose just by the exhaust color. I had white smoke coming from the exhaust of the family van, it was a cracked block. That can certainly cause a multi-misfire. So have an ASE certified mechanic look it over, it could get expensive!

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.

Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.
