White smoke indicates coolant leak in the engine. Could just be your head gasket.

SOURCE: 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 .

SOURCE: my truck blows white smoke

Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck

SOURCE: smoke and water from tailpipe

That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1991 FORD F150 WHITE SMOKE FROM TAILPIPE AND ENGINE RATT

Sounds as if you are running extremely lean.Has EGR been bypassed maybe?
What is fuel pressure,on that vehicle the fuel pressure regulator may be adjustable.Some of these had an allen screw inside the vacuum port where you could richen the mixture some.Also try backing down on the timing a few degrees.

SOURCE: white smoke but no leaks

when the engine is cool start the engine squeeze a radiator hose if it is a safe place, rev the motor if the hose starts to get hard the head gasket or head has a very small leak. It will take a long time for the anti-freeze to burn trough the exhaust and there mayl not being external leaks

Would not gaping the spark plugs properly cause fuel to come out of the tailpipe?


Possible, but it would be a rough engine spin.
Check the fuel level in the carb, or the fuel pressure from the pump as well.

With smoke coming out of tailpipe p301


White smoke coming out of the exhaust on any gas powered vehicle is a sign that you have a blown head gasket allowing water from the cooling system to enter the cylinder, and when the piston comes up for combustion stroke and fires it turns the water to steam. This is also bad for allowing coolant to get in your oil, which anti-freeze in your oil will ruin the journals (Bearings) on the crankshaft (Major Engine Repair) costing several thousand dollars *NEW* !

Why is a very strong gas smell coming from my tailpipe?


White smoke is water vapor and in this cold climate it is normal. Strong gas smell is not normal although you may smell some while engine is warming up. Bad cat converter can produce smells, but usually more like rotten eggs. If engine is running rough and seems rich, check coolant temp sensor. Bad converter can cause stalling too. Otherwise, idle speed is controlled by idle air contol motor which can get dirty and stick. Any codes set?

Backfiring when starting, sputtering, light white smoke out tailpipe, fluid out the tailpipe, check engine light is blinking.


When the check engine light is on, the light is telling the driver the computer has found a problem that may affect performance or emissions. You should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
The smoke and fluid could be coolant or trans fluid being burned thru the cylinders.

White smoke comes out of tailpipes when crank..goes away, car hesitates & stalls out strong smell of gas


You most likely have a bad fuel pressure regulator which is causing the fuel to dump into the cylinders and flood the car.

The backfire may have caused a coolant leak into the engine.
Check for a blown headgasket- look for combustion bubbles in the coolant resevoir (or ask for a coolant system combustion gas check at a radiator specialist).

Got truck started & it blew large amount of gas from tailpipe with white smoke & truck died. can get truck started but it idles hard & pure gas coming from tailpipe


sounds like you have a regulator problem if your fuel pump has a built in regulator it might have went bad or if it is separate from the fuel pump it may be bad. fuel injected engines have to reicive the right amount of fuel if your regulator is not workin its dumpin to much fuel into the engine
