Not good, could mean you have a leaking HEAD GASKET, and its leting your anti freeze leak into your combustion chambers, one or more, and together with fuel ignite into " white smoke " , I would get rid of this car, could lead into more problems, SORRY ! unless you can find a good friend who works on cars replace your head gaskets ! otherwise

SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust

White smokee is normally a sign of coolant getting into a combustion chamber, due to a head gasket, leaking intake, or a crack in either. Check your coolant level! Running it with this problem will destroy your engine. I would get it pressure tested.

White smoke comes out tailpipe when I romp on gas. wont pass smog visual test

Visual test fail is visual white smoke out of the tail pipe?
The engine seems to be burning something it shouldn't, such as coolant, brake fluid, oil. It may have a check engine light on or may not. Give it a leak down test and check for blown gaskets. Look it up in youtube or google it.

After Idle for a while as I drive away there's a lot of smoke that comes out of the exhaust pipe kind of white and bluish

Thats oil caused by "blow by" it means your piston rings are wearing out or you have scratches in the cylinder walls, causing oil to "blow by" the rings and burn during spark. Only way to permanantly fix is to rebuild. You may get temp fix by using a product called restore. It is sold at autoparts stores.

The engine 4.6 gets alot of smog,I think,the problem maybe wil be the regulator presure of fuel pump. Because was liquing gasoline throw the mofles . Do you agree? It ocurres about one minute after I...

If the smoke is white, it is caused from burning oil. It it was gas it would be black. If the smoke is coming from the exhaust pipe then the oil is leaking into the combustion chamber of the engine. If it is coming from under the hood then there is an external leak that is getting on the exhaust system and burning off.

2005 325i with a lot of white smoke coming from the tailpipe.

Yes, the best way to determine if you've blown a head gasket, it to use the diagnos # 4 gas analyser or smog test analyser- (the tube that goes up the tail pipe), place the wand near the radiator. if the wand reads finds CO in the cooling system ,100% blown head gasket

White smoke from tail pipe, Changed rings and head gasket still there.

White smoke or steam? If it's smoke, I bet you have an automatic transmission, trans fluid makes white smoke. There is a vacuum line from the trans to engine somewhere, there is probably a diaphragm that's broken. call your local trans shop it shouldn't be a huge expense to fix.
please leave a fixya rating if I'm correct

White smog

Check your oil level. What you are seeing is likely the signs of an oil leak showing up in the form of white smoke. If you stand by the exhaust pipe and get a small whiff of it, it will smell a bit like oil. Otherwise, in this cold weather it is just the normal steam from the head of the exhaust which will go away when the outside air and exhaust reach a happy medium.

If you have weak piston rings and oil is getting past them, that could be the cause of your oil leak.
