It's normal for cars to do this in cold weather til the engine warms up a bit. If it's not cold you might have a head gasket going bad causing antifreeze to get into the engine.

SOURCE: Blueish white smoke comeing from exhaust

Hello There

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.

You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

SOURCE: White smoke coming out of the exhaust when starting?

Hello;
Volumes of white smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. A certain amount of vapor will be present on start up, but if it is different than what has been the norm for this vehicle then a check of the cooling system is in order.

SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

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.

Will only stay running on revs over 2000rpm if I take foot of peddle it cuts out also white smoke from exhaust


What is year--make--model?
Are you losing coolant? The white smoke may be coolant in the combustion cylinder, possibly caused by a head gasket problem. If head gasket problem, fix that first.

With idle issues, clean/check anything that has to do with idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes?

Why bmw x5 battery drain fan not working exhaust blowing out white smoke... what may be happening.


White smoke out of the exhaust indicates moisture (water) in the exhaust. If the car is not driven very far each day, some moisture will collect in the muffler and cause white smoke for a short while after starting. If the smoke is continual, however, you need to watch you coolant level as you may have a blown head gasket.

I towed it home and i looked under the hood and there was oil from valve cover gasket. i let the car sit for a few days, had it running again for a good hour and no white smoke was coming out. I removed the valve cover and gaskets are all bad. i want to know can the valve cover gasket leak cause the white smoke to come from exhaust pipe?

White smoke came from the exhaust pipe and the car killed in motion. I check all fluid levels were fine, once i started the care again and proceeded the accleration was a bit rough. After a few minute


white smoke mostly is caused by over fueling so what i suggest you do is first of all check if there is no leak on the injectors and if there is none which means your valve sterm seals are damaged.When the head gasket is blown out you may have problems like :-loosing power when driving,over heating,idling problems and oil mixing with water, its not your head gasket.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.

Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.
