Yes, coolant is the most likely cause of white smoke.. Head gaskets are in order

Thick white smoke on start-up. After engine warms up very little smoke or no smoke at all noticable. could it be the PCV valve?


white smoke indicates a coolant burning problem. most likely a head gasket and when it gets warmed up the expansion of the mating components seals off most of the leak. have a head gasket check done. burning of oil is a bluish colour not white.

White smoke delica


The thick white smoke is either burnt oil or steam you can easily identify the smell of burnt oil not really sure why you thought it would be a good idea to put a 2 stroke mixed fuel in but more than likely that alone fouled your spark plugs. But if the problem preceded the fuel blunder then your either have a bad intake/head gasket, leaking valve seats, or bad main engine seal. Replace the spark plugs and check cylinder compression. Change your engine oil and check to see if it contains water/coolant also watch for coolant or oil consumption

this sounds like valve stem seals. Pressure test the cooling system, to be sure. I presume that you would get the same smoke if you were to have a long decelerate and go back on the throttle....?

Coolant smoke is usually TONS of smoke, oil smoke less so, and the oil is somewhat bluer, but hard to tell if you have the Cat burning off some of the oil...

1998 cadillac deville leaking coolant, temperature was around 196 and when leaking started temperature has gone as high as 225, what is causing this problem?


This most certainly sounds like a water pump issue. The thermostate is located inside the water pump housing and if the pump is bad you'l lose fluids and need to add every day or so. The temp guage will run hot and often the heater won't warm up. You have even notice fluids on the ground below the front passenger side of the car. Try getting a pressure test first before replacing anything. That's a good place to start the diagnosis.

Landcruiser 100 vx, 2003 model with engine number 1HD-FTE is not starting, I've found out that the fuel pump, starter, battery are all functioning well. Where next should I look at.

My 99 volvo xc is blowing thick white, bluish


This is not good. White smoke is usually coolant, but the deposits on the plugs indicates oil related issue. Major exploritory surgery is in your future.

Start with a leak down test, and based on the results of that, your next step will be more clear.

Sorry for the bad news, but you already knew that, with the smoke report.
