Question about 1992 Saturn SC

1 Answer

White smoke out of muffler and wont start until floor boarded

This is a 1992 saturn and when it is going down the road there is white smoke coming out the tail pipe.... If you start it normally, it will try to start and then quit- almost like it is not getting enough gas. You have to have the gas pedal all the way down to start it....it tries to over heat sometimes. Wanted to know if I could use the liquid sealer for head gaskets without running the engine....Can't take it to a mechanic as afraid will die on the way there...I am a single mom with kids ....am sharing her car with her.Thanks.

It sounds like the cooling system is leaking into the exhaust system. This cannot be repaired with a liquid sealer. This repair will require professional help

What causes a 97 yukon to go dead going down the road and hard to crank during cold weather... and has white smoke coming from tailpipes


If you have a failing alternator that could cause the vehicle to die while you're going down the road.
Also, the voltage regulator, ( usually in the alternator ) can not put a suficient amount of cahrge back in to the battery to charge it to it's peak. This could cause the vehicle to be hard to start in cold weather.

White smoke is usually associated with a bad fuel/air mix ratio. Because of the difference in humidity with the cold air it is not uncommon to see some white smoke from the tailpipes.

I hope this helps you.

What is causing white smoke coming out of the mufflers when I start the engine?


It's normal for a thin white smoke to come out of the exhaust at initial start up. This is caused from moisture built up in the exhaust burning off. However if there is a continuous flow of thick white smoke it could be a blown head gasket causing coolant to burn.

Truck Not Starting


Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

White smoke coming out of muffer


With white smoke coming out of the muffler, that is a sign that engine is burning water also. Check your radiator coolant level for this. There is a possibility the head gasket is the problem for this.
