Typically bad rings, burning oil... when warms, metal expands, and seals better... check pcv system first, its cheaper, but generally will smoke at all times when bad... valve stem oil seals another posibility

SOURCE: white tail smoke, both temp gauges (oil/engine)

Alright there your on the money there. A4 audi's and The 2liter golfs do haed gaskets at around 145-150,000 miles. the oil's foamy kinda yellowie cream. Tip for ya When you do the head gasket cahnge the rad and water pump at the same time. Mine didthe same it's costly but worth it for piece of mind, Plus is the only time you get to the water pump apart from changing the timing belt.

Rough Idle: Spark wires, coils, rotor cap and distributor, spark plugs, MAF sensor, MAP sensor, the biss screw needs to be adjusted. Could be very many things. Those are just some of the few.

SOURCE: car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving

Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.

SOURCE: audi a3

Does it keep running till the batt is flat? It could be the aircon condenser fan running - on the left as you stand in front of the car. This is a common prob with A3s of this age.
I have a '05 3.2L Quattro V6 and suffered the same prob. The batt is in the boot of the V6 and is sealed like Fort Knox so impossible to disconnect. After about 3 days with this the fan running constantly and having to put a charger on it every night I let the batt run completely flat to try and reset the complete system - no DIS lights - no starter motor clicks - DEAD. Then I jump started it and the prob disappeared completely. Everything is working perfectly ncluding the aircon. That was 4 days ago and 'touch wood' I've had no probs since. I know this won't work for everyone but it's worth a try before forking out £300+ for a new condenser fan unit. Good luck!

Could the problem of white smoke when start up in morning be that the cold start sensor could be at fault


White smoke is actually normal Susan. It isn't smoke, it is steam.

White is steam
blue is oil
black is rich mixture

Gasoline contains water at molecular level, and when it burns it condenses through the cold exhaust system as steam vapour. You should find it disappears when the engine and exhaust is warm.

White smoke from BMW 740i exhaust


white were? the exhaust tip, or other spot, long pipe, name spot?
white, is steam or OIL.
oil smells like burnt oil and takes for ever to dispate
steam is water, and smells , sweet due to 50% glycol inside.
and goes away fast.
but all Gas engines make water at all the time running as a by product of combustion and for sure on cold days, some times full time cold
due to climate effects.
does your neighbors car smoke at same time, (look)
bingo , dew point.

all gas engine smoke cold started, (steam)

so first find out what it is,
take the dip stick out of a hot engine. stalled, drip it on the exhaust
see that smoke ,smell it? that is burning oil
now you know what you have, steam or oil. smoke.

Sounds like you've developed a head gasket problem. True smoke lingers, STEAM dissipates rather quickly.

Large amount of white smoke from exhaust and loss of water from the system. No visible leaks.


ok open your oil cap and see if its creamy inside there
if it is there is water getting into the head
caused by blown head gasket
if not just get back to me and ill find the other soulution
