Have compression check done on all cylenders. sounds that it could be seeping and burning this new anttifreez. can burn out pistons if so. if you have a turbo have your seals checked as they could be hardend and cracked causeing seepage. also note if your oil or coolant levels have been coming up small amounts short, this could tell about the same as the comp tests

White smoke


White smoke is coolant burning. If the smoke has a blue tint to it that is oil burning. If the smoke has a grey tint that is excess fuel. Any way you look at it, I think a trip to your local garage is in order for an accurate diagnosis.

White smoke from tailpipe and low oil pressure


How's the anti-freeze doing? Usually when you see white smoke coming out the tailpipe it's because you are getting anti-freeze in the exhaust somehow. Try to sniff it a little does smell like anti-freeze, or oil? I don't know why the oil pressure would be low unless you are getting anti-freeze in the oil. Does the oil look milky, knda like chocolate milk? The low oil pressure could also be a faulty gauge, you may want to have a mechanic put a mechanical gauge on the car for test purposes.

I have a 1997 pontiac bonneville, it's running really rich (white smoke out of the tailpipe lightly) dies when it's at an idle. Changed the coil pack, no change.


If it is running really rich the color of the smoke out of the tailpipe would be dark grey or black. Some white smoke out of the tailpipe is normal in cooler weather until the vehicle engine warms up. Otherwise white smoke may be an indication of the engine burning coolant (cracked head, headgasket etc). I would take it to an auto parts store and have them scan the car's computer for codes. This is usually a free service. A code may be present even if the engine checklight is not on. A trouble code will make it easier to determine what is the cause of your problem. There are numerous things that can cause the problem you are having. Also knowing the mileage of the vehicle will help. Sorry that I am unable to help you more at this time.

When truck gets warm it will not run over 45 mph


Puffing white smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket. Coolant is getting into the cylinders.

Smoke


This is caused when oil gets passed the rings n the pistons. Its due to wear and tear or old motor needs rebuilt. now you can put a bottle of motor honey in it. or some of that smoke be gone you find in wal-mart auto section of store this will greatly reduce your white smoke till you can get it rebuilt .
