    will walk through exactly what happened left work stopped at gas station put fuel in it started it up and it would stall out everytime i tried to push the gas finally got it to rev up pretty good thinking maybe fuel line may just have been clooged then it started with the white smoke and has been smoking since it will start and idle rough and will stall sometimes and other times will take off and drive fine with minimal hesitation after a stop and applying ga spetal anymore suggestions w

Check the coolant level, if it is low or empty chances are a blown head gasket. A leak in the head will draw the anti freeze into the cylinders and burn

SOURCE: I have blue smoke coming out of exhaust. .

The blue smoke and oil consumption is because of the bad rings. They are allowing oil to get by into the cylinders and it's being burned with the gas. If you don't want to put the money into an engine rebuild, you can try one of the many additives available at auto parts stores that claim to help restore compression and reduce oil burning in worn or high-mileage engines.

SOURCE: Have a knocking noise in engine and white smoke

To my knowledge, all Hondas in the U.S. use timing belts.

The white smoke is indicative of a head gasket problem. Coolant is likely getting into your oil.

Don't wait too long to have this checked out. You could destroy your engine.

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust and smell gas fumes

A plugged catalytic converter can set codes, but I think we need to concentrate on smoke right now. That's not saying that the converter wasn't a partial, or the cause of the white smoke. Has your oil level or coolant level been going down, or up recently, since this all started ?
You say he cleaned all the insides of the catalytic converter out, so there is no blockage there now, correct? Did you erase the code when you replaced the oxygen sensor, and it came back again? Finally, if you have white smoke rolling out your exhaust, it is usually caused by oil or coolant consumption getting into the cylinder, which could also be causing oxygen sensor to foul up & cause a code. I'd concentrate on finding the cause of the white smoke first. Cooling system pressure test, engine compression check should tell you , but so should consumption of oil or coolant increase. If the problem originated at the converter (plugged) it may have caused a blown head gasket for one thing. I'll wait for your reply.

SOURCE: car stalling

this could be many things, you could have dirty fuel injectors, in which you just buy some fuel injecter cleaner. Or it could be something like an o2 sensor, because o2 sensors "read" the exhaust coming out of your car and adjust fuel/air mixture as necessary. If its bad then it will send mixed signals, making the car sputter and hesitate when you push the gas. But my guess would be dirty fuel injectors.
Good luck with your car.

SOURCE: engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.

the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

My car has white smoke coming from the exhaust


he causes of white exhaust smoke can vary; however, it is common to see white exhaust smoke when first starting a car, especially on cooler days. This is generally steam caused by condensation. As the engine warms up and the condensation dissipates the white exhaust smoke (steam) is no longer seen. If excessive white exhaust smoke is present well after the engine warms up, it is necessary to have the car inspected for possible internal coolant leaks. Indicators of an internal coolant leak include billowing white exhaust smoke accompanied by a sweet odor or a low coolant reservoir level. An internal coolant leak can also contaminate the engine oil giving it a frothy, milky appearance. Even small amounts of coolant entering the combustion chamber will produce white exhaust smoke.
One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.
Never remove the radiator cap or coolant reservoir cap while the engine is hot or running as it can cause serious injury; always allow the car to cool down completely first. Checking for a low coolant level in the reservoir is the first step in determining if coolant loss is causing the white exhaust smoke. If the coolant reservoir is at the proper level but excessive white exhaust smoke is present, a cooling system pressure check is required to determine where, if any, coolant leaks are located.

1999 gmc suburban-smoke comes out exhaust and smells like gasoline


If the check engine light is not on, I would check the fuel pressure regulator and for problems with the fuel return line.
If you have a leaking injector you should get a check engine light and code for a cylinder miss.

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.
