Question about 2003 Honda Civic
Started and ran the car
Drain it IMMEDIATELY!!! It could remove all of the protection your engine uses to keep it from wearing out. Be prepared to spend alot of money on oil to flush out the antifreeze! Also get a few oil filters! The first wash is CRITICAL....After you have let the engine drain OVERNIGHT, leaving the old filter off, Put back the drain plug and mount the new filter, and add the new oil. Run the engine until it is at operating temperature. Turn it off...drain it while HOT and pull the filter while hot (Use Gloves to keep from burning yourself). Let it drain overnight again. Repeat the process above running the car for 24 hours, then for 3 days, then for 1 week. After that last drain, you should be ready to see what damage was caused...hopefully not much if you didn't drive it too far...

White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. 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.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
