SOURCE: car is blowing white smoke from exhaust when i step on gas

The most likely cause is a blown head gasket,but it could also be a warped head,was the motor overheated prior to the problem starting? The white smoke is steam,check the underside of the oil fill cap and dipstick for a grayish brown residue,check the coolant for a low level and oil conatamination,either of these conditions verify that a head isn't fully sealed.Unless your moderately skilled mechanically this a job to be done by a shop.A good shop will perform a leakdown test to verify this.

SOURCE: its blowing white smoke from exhaust

If the smoke is white in color, has a sweet scent and deposits moisture (face the palm of your hand about 3 inches back from the exhaust tip with the engine running for a few seconds then check your hand for moisture) then you are burning coolant. If it is being burned and exiting out the exhaust, you more than likely have a head gasket leak so be cautious of the engine temperature because the car will possibly overheat. If you look closely at the smoke and if it has a blue tint in the white then you are burning oil which could be leaking from the piston rings. Further inspection would be necessary in both cases. It is very important to correct either issue immediately due to the severity of the possible outcomes that can destroy the engine and leave you stranded and car less to name a few.

SOURCE: 2006 Focus Diesel blowing lots of white smoke out

If you experience the higher USEAGE of OIL on the engine then it is possible that the oil rings are weak on the engine. So please make sure that this consumption of oil is seen , if so the oil also can blacken faster and cause more damage to the engine. You will need to overhaul the engine is this problem is seen.

2006 toyota avalon blowing white smoke in the morning

This sounds like coolant is leaking into the combustion chamber so when it is cool remove the radiator cap and see if the coolant level is low which will indicate that the engine is consuming coolant. Pressure testing the cooling system would be the next test to check for such a lek.

CEL blinking smoke coming from exhaust, rough idle

White smoke is indicative of burning coolant. Gray smoke is burning oil.

Have a compression test done which will often give an indication of evolving head gasket problems. If the coolant level is going down, and there's no obvious leak, its a head gasket.

2006 Town & Country burning oil excessively. 40,000 miles; burning 1 quart every 1000 miles; no signs of the oil anywhere

At 40K miles it shouldn't burn that much oil, unless the motor has been abused or overheated. With no signs of oil leaks, the engine must be burning it via the exhaust,

Change the oil (use a good quality oil) and then observe oil consumption.

If it still uses excessive oil check further as below:-
1) if it blows blue smoke on steady accelleration (pistons or ring wear),
2) only blows blue smoke on initial accelleration after a period of steady coasting or de-celleration (faulty valve stem oil seals).

98 forester blows oil 2.5

You have a problem with a gasket, basically the gasket on the head of valves, then you only have to change the gasket, this a common problem when the gasket is broke or burned.
