White smoke means antifreeze is being burned in combustion chamber-you have a bad head gasket-when you replace it have the head planned or it may happen again -cheers Denny

SOURCE: everytime i start my truck a puff of white smoke

Hi Friend:
Check to See if your air-temperature sensor that regulates the amount of vacuum signal that is applied to the servo motor:

The worst Problem is Blown Head Gasket will cause a Loss of Coolant and will cause the White Smoke out of Your Exhaust.

Check your Raditor for signs of Oil in it.

And Double Check your Oil to see if there are Signs of Water In your Oil.

Sounds like you Have a Bad Head Gasket or a Cracked Block That is letting Water to get into your Oil.

It sounds like it Not a Large Area of Head Gasket Failure as of Now.

But it Will Get Worst. Replace your Head Gaskets. And Check your Heads for Warpage and Cracks.

Thank You For Using FIXYA From d_hubbs

White smoke comes out my car when i start it but goes after a while


Usually high humidity in the exhaust system. Check the exhaust pipe inclination to see if it doesn't allow water to flow into the muffler.
Also after the smoke goes, i.e the car is well warmed up, put the car in Park or Neutral. Tap the gas pedal to get some quick revs. Look for small puffs of white smoke. If you see some then get ready for a rings job. This can be confirmed by removing the spark plugs. They'll have oil deposit on them.

When truck gets warm it will not run over 45 mph


Puffing white smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket. Coolant is getting into the cylinders.

White smoke from the exhaust when I start the car


Hi!

What type of smoke can you see---

white smoke-
If you see a wispy, lingering white smoke that has a bittersweet smell, this is an indication that your car's engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers. This may be due to a leaky head gasket, or in a worst case scenario, a cracked cylinder head.

Make sure to take your car to the shop right away to get it fixed.
Thick white smoke---
If your vehicle is belching white smoke upon start-up, it is a sign that transmission fluid is entering the combustion chambers, possibly though a vacuum tube that connects the engine to the transmission.
This type of smoke can be confused with the normal puff of steam during start-up. If you are not sure, have your car inspected at the shop.

Blue/White Smoke--
A blue/white smoke is an indication that oil is being sucked into the combustion chambers through the valve guides. A quick fix for this problem is by replacing the valve seals. Valve seals are small, umbrella shaped pieces of rubber.

Do rate the solution.

Thanks
Rylee.
