Sounds like a head gasket leak and water from the cooling system is getting sucked into your engine, if you are also noticing that your coolant level is low then this may be the problem for the white smoke

White smoke indicates a coolant leak. Your gaskets may be blown, which allows antifreeze to seep into your combustion chamber. You need to check your oil, which will turn white/watery when its mixed with antifreeze. Another problem is that you may have a cracked head. Usually this is a more expensive, but any good mechanic could check this out for you. Good luck.22

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust pipe


White smoke is usually a sign for a bad head gasket. How much white smoke is coming out? Also, are you losing coolant and can't find a drip under the engine?

1999 gmc youkon missing real bad lots of white smoke smells like straight gas done complete tune up nothing changes help


White smoke would indicate you're burning engine coolant. Black smoke is usually raw unburned fuel, and bluish smoke is oil. Has the engine overheated recently? Is it losing coolant without any external signs of a coolant leak? You may want to do a block check to see if you have a blown head gasket....

Car smoke real bad when you crank it up


Sounds like you could have a leaking fuel injector or a bad fuel pressure regulator causing a rich condition at start up or possibly bad valve guide seals causing oil to leak into the combustion chamber, is the smoke blue or black when you start the engine up???

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad


This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)
