Question about Ford Ranger
Its white smoke but has a rich smell, smokes worse when its revved up
That should be anti-freeze smell, and you should have a severe problem with a head, a head gasklet, or the block of the motor.
It should be cracked or leaking.
Before you go and have the engine torn down, and after you get a second opinion, there is a new way to fix this you might wish to try.
Auto parts stores sell a liquid you can add to your radiator to fix that problem.
The bottles of stuff cost from 15 to 85 dollars each.
They are supposed to be guaranteed.
I tried one, it did not work, but lots of other people say their bottle worked.

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.
You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: White smoke 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. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....
