If you are located in an area with one of the large chain auto parts stores such as Advanced Auto, Kragen, AutoZone, etc., give them a call and ask if they have the free code readout service. They might be able to tell you in a minute where the problem is and we would only be able to speculate about it. 
You didn't mention the color of the 'smoke' which means it could be steam vapor, gasoline or oil fog. Each of those can give one a clue as to the nature of the problem.

You will need to take your car to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and have the codes pulled. They will do this for free. Let me know what the codes are and we can get started fixing the problem.

My Hyundai 1999 model CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON AND THE FUEL CONSUMPTION IS HIGH.


Do you have black smoke or what looks like soot coming out of the tail pipe. The check engine light monitors fuel pressure through the computer and pressure regulator. It will come on if the pump pressure is too high or too low. If the pressure regulator is faulty it could cause excessive fuel consumption,

White smoke coming from the tail pipe when i start the car


if its happening during non cold weather then you may have a head gasket going bad and need replacement.you can have a combustion chamber test and a co test done on the cooling system to see if anything shows.be aware that may not show a problem depending on how early on the gasket is in deterioration.have you had to add coolant to the system or have recently noticed the level going down in the overflow bottle or rad.this is another way of showing a possible head gasket problem.white smoke indicates the burning of coolant.

My 1994 Buick Lesabre was spewing white smoke from the tail pipe . I took the heads off and had them tested. No cracks -then had them planned down flat and a mechanic rebuilt and replaced using new bolts...


Classic signs of coolant in the oil and since heads were repaired and sealed, it could be a cracked block.
Coolant is mixed in oil and coolant impedes lubrication of engine thus hard to turn over and start.
One last hope is to drain crank case, refill with fresh oil and new filter.
Add Barr's leak "copper" )(looks like liquid copper and costs about $10) sealant to coolant fluid. Run the engine a few times to full warm up, each time observing for tell-tale white smoke from exhaust. Check dipstick level between each cycle.
If problem subsides, go buy a lottery ticket as you're very lucky. If not, a new engine or short block is on the menu.

Good Luck

Buick lesabra 2001 dies while driving, voltage light comes on.


hello, you may need to have engine tuned up, have choke checked out, usually all the lights,bells and whistles will come on after it dies.because you are having to start engine again, when first starting engine, see what all lights comes on, then when engine dies it should be the same lights coming on when first starting engine, thats pretty normal ,have all filters checked out like gas filter, air filter etc
