I have had head gasket replaced in my 2007 Pontiac Solstice but I still have white smoke coming out of my tail pipe; What can be wrong???


Still have coolant leaving the exhaust,
means the problem wasn't diagnosed &
repaired properly


Not too many choices there

Head Gasket,intake,cracked head

Sounds like the head gasket wasn't
the only issue,something was missed
during the last reapair

White smoke coming out of the tail pipes


You don't say what the make model and year is, but yes it could be an intake gasket.
It could also be a leaking head gasket among other things.

2002 SAAB is releasing white smoke out of tail pipe and stalling


White smoke out the exhaust is a sign of either water in the fuel or coolant being burned with the fuel. Observe if you have any coolant consumption and if not, wait until your tank to empt and filled up with new fresh good quality gasoline and you will be allright. If you have a coolant consumption you will need a tool to pressure test the coolant system and find where is leaking. You can purchase it at Harborfreight tools. Could be head gasket, Throtllebody gasket, intake gasket and others... Good luck.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


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.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I have smoke coming from both of my tail pipes on a 2001 Cadillac Deville. I can't really tell whether the smoke is gray or white. The car has not ran hot. I did change the radiator cap but that is the...


If your loosing coolant when it cools off and draws it out of the resevoir,you know it is water and then maybe white smoke.
You could warm it up without the rad cap and look for bubbles. It will push out air and coolant anyway,so that will be a difficult test.

Dual exhaust issues,should be common to both banks. I would go with coolant and intake gaskets first,may have a crossover in manifold,so you get both pipes effected.

My pt cruiser after warming up throws white smoke from tail pipe . no loss of power or oil or antifrizee.


You are loosing coolant. White smoke only comes from water. Gray or blue from oil

No secret here, intake manifold or head gasket.

My 2004 ford 450 superduty deisal wont start in the mornings and when it cranks over black smoke comes out the tail pipe


If it finally starts after a lot of cranking, I'd have a look at the glow plugs. If they've not been changed since the truck was built, they've probably come to the end of their life.

Upon starting the 1995 Camry the engine dies. There is also grey smoke coming from the tail pipe. Checked the oil and there is no water in it.


Is it gray, bluish gray, or white? White smoke, during warm weather, indicates that you have a head gasket out and it's vaporizing water, it will look much like it does when you first start it on a cold day. Bluish gray indicates burning oil, which could be bad valve seating, severe engine wear on your piston rings and oil is blowing past them into the combustion chamber. Grey smoke is probably water as well, though it could be contaminated with oil, or the vehicle could be running too rich, getting too much gasoline. But typically this is more of a black smoke than gray.

Smoke keeps coming out the tail pipe bad...what should i do to fix it?


you likely have a head gasket issue or cylinder issue. Neither of these is remotely cheap to fix. if the smoke is gray probably burning oil, if the smoke is white probably getting water in the oil from failed head gasket.

There is oil in my 2004 BMW 320d return pipe from the intercooler to the intake manifold and smoke when started.


simple. the trubo bearing/seal (probably more the seal) is stating to go and that is leaking oil into the return pipe. take pipe off and have a look at the turbo and see if you can see any oil leaking from inside of it. also oil in the intercooler = bad clean out after fixing the turbo = use solvent or something to dissolve oil but make sure you let the intercooler dry out before re-installing it
