Is it a lot of white smoke? White/Gray Smoke: White exhaust smoke is an indication that coolant is burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible causes:
Cylinder Head: A crack in the cylinder head (around the coolant jacket) will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.


Although for some cars white smoke is normal, as long as it is not super excessive.

Your car is burning oil. This is most likely due to leaking valve seals. That would explain why the car is losing oil but not coolant.

First thing to have checked is the Intake manifold gaskets, (common) but if it has overheated at all, you could have head gasket/head troubles.

Just bought 2005 Kia Sedona white smoke comes from tailpipe occasionally car drives smoothe and its not over heating what's wrong


If white smoke appear when you take off from traffic lights or accelerating after coasting downhill then this indicates that either the engine has worm piston rings or valve guides.
You need a mechanic to do a cylinder compression test to determine if the engine rings are worn.

If blue smoke started but then it stopped what does that mean?


When you stop at the traffic lights and then drive off and you get blue white smoke then you have either worn piston rings or worn valve guides where oil is getting into the combustion chamber.
