White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.

Yes it could be from the intake manifold but also could be another head gasket from either a bad gasket or if the block or head wasnt completely flat.

    as all of meltedadrena's solution is true for diesels it is not true for a gasoline engine. a gasoline engine will only throw white smoke from antifreeze getting into the engine

I have a 1998 hyundai excel running rough as if only on 2 or 3 cylinders starts 1st time but running realy bad and blows heaps of white smoke I can drive it and you can feel it not running on all cylinders...


Is the heaps of white smoke come out of the tail pipe LONG AFTER the 15 minutes period?
To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1998,with over 120,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.

Overheating blowing smoke


Your problem is a blown head gasket .You will need to have the gasket replaced . It would also pay to get the head crack tested and if it is ok get it machined or skimmed as it could be warped.
Consider replacing the waterpump and timing belt along with tensioner and idler.Make sure the thermostat is replaced also.Get the radiator cleaned as well.
Hope this helps

Susuki baleno 4cyl 1.6l blowing smoke


It sounds like a piston oil ring is broken considering the valve stem guides and seals have been done, oil is definately getting into the combustion chamber there are only two places that can happen through the valves or through the rings, black smoke is always too much gas, blue smoke is always to much oil in combustion chamber. Hope this helps even though it's not the best news.

Mazda bravo blowing white smoke


blowing white smoke is almost always a symptom of an engine coolant leak at the cylinder head gasket. remove each spark plug and look for a dis-colored plug to find which cylinder is leaking.
