Usually when your exhaust shoots out white or grayish white smoke your head gasket is out. its not a hard or very expensive fix.

White smoke means water is getting into the engine from teh coolant system. Likely that your engine cylinder head has a crack, or head gasket is bad

White smoke coming out of tail pipe not all the time but after driving a while. Big white clouds engulfs other cars in traffic


First thing to have checked is the Intake manifold gaskets, (common) but if it has overheated at all, you could have head gasket/head troubles.

URGENT THAT I GET MY 1993 FORD PROBE FIXED!!!


Sounds like you have either blown a head gasket, or you have a crack in the head, or in the block.

First step would be to do a compression check on the motor.
