I gather you are sure it is smoke and not water vapour from the car warming up? Cars can run rich at start up until it warms up (automatic choke). You may have also overfilled the oil a little this can cause some burning through breathers. Unless it is excessive I would not worry too much about it - keep an eye on your oil and coolent levels.

Check your temp sensor. sound like the ecu thinks the engine is cold and is choking the engine in an effort to warm it up.

With the white smoke in the morning but not later after you drive a bit sounds like the valves aren't operating properly.The cutting could be related to the valve issue.

Gunk makes an oil solvent that stops oil burning. The smoke coming from exhaust would be o-ring issue. If its white smoke its oil, if its blue smoke its gas. Also Gunk makes a stop smoke solvent as well. Both these items are around 5 bucks at autozone and will help the issue. But the burning of the oil is def killing your gas mileage. But try those two gunk solvents and see if that helps.

Usually high humidity in the exhaust system. Check the exhaust pipe inclination to see if it doesn't allow water to flow into the muffler.
Also after the smoke goes, i.e the car is well warmed up, put the car in Park or Neutral. Tap the gas pedal to get some quick revs. Look for small puffs of white smoke. If you see some then get ready for a rings job. This can be confirmed by removing the spark plugs. They'll have oil deposit on them.

White smoke


from where, end of tail pipe or ?????????????
tail smoke has 2 types,. oil and steam.
1: steam smells sweet(glycol) and goes away fast.
2: oil smoke, smells like burnt oil and takes a vary long time to go byebye.

or is normal.
all cars burning gasoline make water (H2O) as a byproduct, of combustion the seems to go away on a hot day.
but really does not, it just seems to.
on a cold day all cars make steam
if yours is and your neighbors car dont at the SAME time (out door temps same) then your steam is wrong. a bad sign of bad head gasket or far far worse , a cracked head.
did you do the pre fall service, and check antifreeze protection levels.

White smoke coming from my tail pipe when I accelerate


You may have a blown piston ring, valve seals, valve guides, cracked head gasket or a cracked block, etc... It sounds major though for you to lose power suddenly and have all that smoke...

MY 2000 MAXIMA IS HAVING LOTS OF ISSUES


Your antifreese is leaking through the engine block The white smoke that you see coming out off the tail pipe is steam from heating up the antifreeze. This problem needs to be taken to a mechanic because your engine may have a blown head gasket or a cracked block. You keep having to fill it up with antifreeze because it is evaporating inside your engine block. Check your oil and see if the color is like a white milky liquid. If so then its definitely your head gasket. Try not to run the car to much like this because you will crack the engine. This is a pretty expensive job. You may want to consider a different vehicle because who knows what else will go wrong with this vehicle. I hope this helps you.
