    White smoke is a sign that you are getting antifreeze into the cylinders.  the most likely cause is a cracked head gasket.  Have your engine compression checked and this will tell you for sure.

Smoke coming from engine


Where is the white smoke coming from? Under hood? Out tail pipe? If excessive white smoke from tail pipe, suspect a head gasket failure which in turn will fill the cooling system with exhaust pressure forcing the coolant to come out of the reservoir and resulting in an overheating problem

Excessive exhaust smoke


You may have a broken ring or scored cylinder wall and piston. Have a cylinder leak down test performed to confirm this. Other causes can be a plugged crankcase ventilation system causing pressure to build in the engine, if that is the case the air cleaner box should have oil in it. The grey color of the smoke means you are burning a lot of oil.

Volvo 850 smoke coming from exhaust manifold


Not to worry. Run the engine up to operating temp before jumping to conclusions and let the heat burn off any excess oil. A leaf will not do any damage.Do not let the engine overheat while idling and if the oil light comes on switch off immediately.
The smoke from the exhaust is oil deposited by oily assembly hands just burning off. It should dissipate after about 15 minutes at most.(or 5 miles' drive)

I have a 2001 S40 thats got a lot of smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. any suggestions as to what could be causing that?


Only three things can cause that. 1. excessive amount of fuel entering the combustion chambers. 2.oil entering the combustion chamber. 3. Coolant entering the combustion chamber (coolant steam dissipates faster than oil related smoke and can also be accompanied by dripping liquid from pipe). There are numerous reasons that can happen, all of which can be tested. Fuel problems are generally related to the engine management system in which case code testing is required with follow-up individual component tests. Oil and coolant problems can be checked by doing cylinder compression, cylinder leakdown tests and cooling system pressure tests.
