The most common cause of coolant coming out the tail pipe is a blown head gasket. Water vapor is normal.

SOURCE: Leaking Gas From Tail Pipe

Don't drive it !!!! Don't START IT !! Have it towed to dealer or garage & have fuel system checked. Raw fuel is getting dumped into engine & could cause big problems, as well as a fire, or explosion.

SOURCE: alot ofwhite smoke coming from tail pipe

Not sounding good if white smoke, usually indicates coolant into cylinders via bad head gasket or head, maybe intake leak, or piston rings gone. You, or someone didn't overfill oil by chance did you?
What's mileage & did you have any warning signs or did this just happen all of a sudden.

SOURCE: car is hard to start, keeps stalling, white smoke coming out of tail pipe

It sounds to me like you have a head gasket leaking. See if you can get a gauge and check each cylinder. Are you using alot of anti freeze?

SOURCE: I am having a hard time starting my 1999

I am sure this is a head casket problem. If coolant gets into your cylinders, it will cause the white smoke, and also thin the oil if it gets in the base pan. Do not operate this vehicle until it has been checked by a mechanic, or you will ruin the motor

My car overheated shut off on me and now it wont stay running unless my foot is on the gas


Sounds like a cracked head. Or possibly a bad head gasket.
Either one of these would explain water coming out of tailpipe.

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.

Spits gas and smokes alot from the tail pipe


Hi Dave,

I appreciate you asking mr to help you with your problem.
However, I am not really certain what you are describing here. Are you saying that you have RAW, UNBURNED FUEL coming out the tailpipe? Or are you saying that there is an excessive amount of LIQUID coming out the tail pipe and you are not really sure WHAT it is?

If the latter is the case, and you have a lot of white steam coming out of the tail pipe, you really need to check your engine coolant level. You could have something like a blown head gasket causing this. A blown head gasket will cause the engine to push engine coolant out the exhaust.

My 92 ford is using excessive gas and has a bad gas smell with alot of smoke coming from tailpipe after i add gas


If the smoke comming from the tail pipe is black your running rich. If thats the case the entire fuel system has to be ckecked out. Injectors could be leaking, a bad pressure regulator,stuck return line ,a coolant temp sensor could be telling the ECU that the engines cold give her more gas. I don't recommend doing fuel service unless your qualified to do so for the obvious reasons.
If the smoke coming out of the tail is grayish you have a bad head gasket. If the smoke coming out of the tail is blue you have engine oil getting into the combustion chamber. keep me posted

Leaking oil put of tail pipe, is the cooling sensor important, head gasket blown how do you know


Never seen oil come from tail pipe (unless a piston has a broken ring or a hole burned in it.) Cooling sensor tells the computer the engine temp and the computer turns the fan on through the fan relay. Very important for it to work. A blown head gasket will make the engine overheat, can cause white smoke from tailpipe, coolant loss and extremely rough running. Also can cause coolant in engine oil or oil in radiator. What you may be seeing may be water mixed with carbon from the inside of the pipe. Excessive water coming form pipe is also a head gasket symptom. A compression test or cylinder leakdown test or a radiator hydrocarbon test will tell you if gasket has failed.
