If smoke is sweet smelling and alot of moisture drips out of tail pipe, it is probably engine coolant.Check for coolant loss.

i believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out

It probably has some internal engine damage. If you pull the spark plugs one or more will probably be oil fouled.
You may want to have a compression test done and see if you can find the source of the oil - may be a head gasket.

You must have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a local shop confirm this for you as it is a very expensive repair.

A lot of white smoke and engine dying could be bad head gasket. Search 'symptoms of head gasket failure' to make sure before you run it again. Good luck

Coolant low is displayed. What type/brand coolant. Car was smoking.


If you are smokeing white smoke out your exhust and you are low on anti freeze do not drive this vehicle any further you have a bad head gasket or a cracked head either way it needs major engine work.If you drive it further you will destroy the engine. check your oil if you see white stuff on dip stick if you do your anti freeze is now in your oil .have serviced by a compatent mechanic.

Car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving


Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.
