SOURCE: white smoke from tail pipe

It often means that you are burning antifreeze. You asked if it needs antifreeze, have you noticed any leaking out of the reservoir tank while you are running it? Sometimes when the head gasket goes it will produce a passage for the antifreeze to pass from the capillaries into the combustion chamber. It is easy to check if you have an air compressor. Remove one of the rear sparkplugs and the radiator cap. Fill the radiator and then push some air into the sparkplug hole (get a good seal in case a valve is open). Repeat with all the cylinders and watch for air bubbles coming up into the radiator. If bubbles come up or fluid is pumped out, the head gasket is blown and must be replaced. It is more likely to happen at the back of the engine because it is farthest away from the fan and therefore gets less cooling. Also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings.

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust

If you are getting clouds of white smoke out the exhaust it is a good indicator of antifreeze getting into one or more of the cylinders. I bought a "Great" car sight unseen from a friend once and when he pulled in the drive the whole car disappeared in a cloud of white smoke that only left when he shut the engine off. I found head gasket leaks in half the cylinders. It takes very little coolant to cause the white smoke. If you are absolutely sure of zero coolant loss perhaps the smoke is a little blue--an indication of burning a little oil from a sloppy turbo bearing. Try the nose test-- it may give you the answer. Burning oil has a distinctive smell.

Check the oil fill cap and the radiator cap, see if you have a milky scum accumulation on either one, can indicate a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder where the oil is burning and allowing water intothe hot cylinder which causes white smoke to be emmitted from tailpipe.

SOURCE: blue smoke coming from exhaust.Think turbo is bad

The bearings and seals in the turbo are going bad, so oil is getting burned with the fuel.

SOURCE: White smoke coming out of the exhaust when starting the engine?

Its the problem of oil.The oil is getting burned out. The vehicle is either burning oil or it is moisture in the gas chamber if you notice white smoke from the exhaust. This is a common possibility.but in some cases this white smoke is not due to oil burning.In that case   White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Normally this is a sign of a blown head gasket or cracked head. And  this is not a common problem must be repaired immediately. You must STOP driving this vehicle or you will cause serious engine damage. you will have to get both this possibilities checked.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

There is white smoke coming out of the back of my 2005 aui a4 2.0 tdi


It's very simply to find out if the turbocharger is causing white smoke from the exhaust vs a blown head gasket. So, remove the turbocharger's compressor inlet centre hose (from the aluminium side of the turbo). Then see if there's in plenty of oil coming out from the hose and from the turbo. I'm 100% convinced that the turbocharger is damaged in your case. You can remove also the exhaust pipe out from the turbocharger, and see if there's a lot of oil coming out.
Repair or replace bad turbocharger with a new one (or with a second hand in good condition one).
Good Luck!

I have a 2000 beetle 1.8 turbo the turbo makes a noise after 3000rph and alot of white smoke starts to come out from exhaust.


This sounds like you have a seal that is failing under the stress of high engine and turbo rotor rpm's, the white smoke is oil burning, either in the exhaust stream or it's oil getting into the intake stream and being burned with the fuel..
You can remove the turbo yourself but you may not be able to locate the issue.
I would advise that you take the vehicle into a turbocharger specialist..

White smoke is usually coolant, oil is usually a blue color, most turbos r cooled by coolant so U may have a coolant leak in the turbo, may B a seal or crack in the turbo. Check your coolant level occasionally to C if it drops.

A lot of white smoke coming from tail pipe.


Sounds like the bearings in your turbo, or your return pipe for the turbo is blocked and oil is building up to the point of leaking out the bearings into the exhaust.Let me know :)
