SOURCE: thick white smoke coming from exhaust

I would think this will be a blown turbo.

These are fed by a small oil pipe and if the unit overheats (due to wear) - this oil fill feed directly into either the inlet manifold - or the outlet - exhaust.
If it is spilling oil into the hot exhaust - you will get a thick white fog. You can confirm this by placing a clear glass bottle or jar in the exhaust stream - and see if it gets a thick coating of oil on it. If it evaporates - it's water, if not - or feels oily - new turbo or overhaul.

Best get is sortd sooner rather than later - as you may be able to save most of it for an overhaul rather than scrap it if badly worn.

If its blue smoke then your valve stem seals are worn and that is allowing oil to enter the cylinders and burning with the gas.

White smoke out of exhaust


Regarding 2001 audi a6 quattro 2.7t....i was driving to work the car was fine then white smoke starting coming from under the hood and tail pipe. i stopped veilce and alot of oil was dripping from front of car. I towed it home and i looked under the hood and there was oil from valve cover gasket. i let the car sit for a few days, had it running again for a good hour and no white smoke was coming out. I removed the valve cover and gaskets are all bad. i want to know can the valve cover gasket leak cause the white smoke to come from exhaust pipe?

White smoke tail pipe wont gasket


You have a "blown head gasket" This means that the gasket seal between the cylinder head and the cylinder block has failed. Coolant is getting into the combustion chamber (cylinder) and being heated into steam.. If you carefully smell the exhaust FROM A DISTANCE, don't stick your nose in the tail pipe, you will detect a sweetness to the steam from the glycol in the coolant. Now you need to either get a quote to have it done, or research how to do it yourself. If you are NOT a fair to decent mechanic, then don't try doing yourself.
If you pull the spark plugs you can narrow down the area where it's failed. The CLEAN plug is where it is.

Hi, My Audi A6 is overheating and the coolant is


Fan turns on when you turn the AC on, and when coolant gets too hot (over middle of the instrument).
White smoke in exhaust means coolant gets into the cylinder, typically head gasket or crack.
Is the upper radiator hose (the one that goes to the coolant expansion tank getting very hot? Observe when car is warming up. When coolant temp gauge needle is in the middle, the upper radiator hose should get warm; also the radiator (you can touch the top and check) should get warm at that time. The means that the thermostat opened as it should (when engine warmed up). If it does NOT get hot, then the thermostat is stuck closed, which can lead to overheating. Still, the fans should kick in.

Hi,recently noticed a smoke(smells like exhaust smoke) coming from underneath my drivers side wheel arch when I start the engine on my Audi A6 1.9tdi.What could be the problem..?


There are couplings that hook the manifold to the exhaust.... flex pipes.. about the size of large can of soup... they allow the engine to flex when you punch the gas.... they meet on both sides right underneath the bottom of the engine.... Google "audi a6 flex pipe" you' ll see them on ebay..... its the braided part... Go anywhere but MIDAS! to have it fixed... about $225 per side... That's what my problem was...... good luck

I have white smoke coming from where it seems to Problem with the Audi A6 2000 A6 I have white smoke coming from where it seems to appear, under the coolant tank, for a short period of time after...


You have coolant burning. Your 2.7T is a hot-running engine and the plastic tank sits above the left side exhaust manifold. The heat from the manifold is known to cook the tank and make it brittle enough to crack and leak. I think if you look at the tank you'll see it's leaking slightly on the manifold, causing the coolant smoke you're seeing. You can get a new tank from www.GermanAutoParts.com in Albany NY - great place to deal with (I always order parts for jobs from them) and replacement is simple.

I have smoke that come s from the hood. I recently had gaskets put on but still doing the same thing. what could be my problem


Could be oil on exhaust or turbo. If an exhaust gasket then could be that, they smoke for a bit for a couple of hours use after fitment.

I have white smoke coming out from the exhaust of my audi a6 2003 and the coolant tank is empty


Unfortunately you probably have a blown headgasket. You should not drive the car like this as it will further damage the engine. The parts and labor for this job are not cheap. You may want to phone around and get some quotes. I would ask for prices on the headgasket, themostat, timing belt and waterpump. All these things should be done as part of the job.

Hope this helps,
Dave
