White smoke

from where, end of tail pipe or ?????????????
tail smoke has 2 types,. oil and steam.
1: steam smells sweet(glycol) and goes away fast.
2: oil smoke, smells like burnt oil and takes a vary long time to go byebye.

or is normal.
all cars burning gasoline make water (H2O) as a byproduct, of combustion the seems to go away on a hot day.
but really does not, it just seems to.
on a cold day all cars make steam
if yours is and your neighbors car dont at the SAME time (out door temps same) then your steam is wrong. a bad sign of bad head gasket or far far worse , a cracked head.
did you do the pre fall service, and check antifreeze protection levels.

It has a bad mis and running rich dark foul smelling smoke what's wrong? 1991 chevy v6 s10

possibly a faulty injector for the miss but if you have a head/headgasket problem it would account for the exhaust. Do a compression test and radiator pressure test to eliminate that area of concern

Smoking out the back and burning smell inside.

check for a cracked head that smoke you see is probably antifreeze coming out of the coolant trench in the block itself or could just be a bad gasket on your head

When i start my car you smell gas ,and it smoke.

HTML clipboard If you can smell gas ONLY when the engine is running, then the gas didn't get burned completely. It could be the combination of the computer, oxygen sensors, and/or catalytic converter is going bad. If you could smell gas when it's parked, you might want to take it to a mechanic to have your gas line checked for leaks and for pressure test. Here's a website that talk a little about gas smell good luck.
