Replace Valve Stem Seals, that should do the trick.

2000 mitsubishi eclipse coolant leak and car smoking.? My coolant reservoir has been dry for several weeks now. Stupid on my part I know, but it's the third time it has gone dry in the past three


You did not say if it is a 4 cyl or a V6, but generally the power steering pump is belt driven, and the V6 water pump is driven by the timing belt.
The pump in question could be the power steering pump. Or it could be the 4 cyl water pump.
You might be able to take a photo of it and post it here to make sure, or check an auto parts store for a visual.
As for the coolant leak, is the pump smoking, or leaking ?
You can't really see the V6 water pump without removing some parts from the side of the engine.
Do you know where the power steering system is leaking ?
Does the engine run rough after you fill up the radiator ?

Sorry but white smoke is a sign of water getting into 1 or more cylinders.I would pull the oil dipstick and see if it looks like a creamy color.If it does then you may have a blown head gasket or a crack in the engine block somewhere.

Big puff of white smoke at start up after sitting for several hours.


white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.
nest time try and smell the white smoke see if it smells sweet?
if it does its antifreeze.
and also black smoke is fuel (like a leaky injector )

Have you used the correct grade of oil for the engines mileage? If you add a can of Wynns Smoke Stop that will thicken it a bit and help to stop/reduce the emissions.

I had a similar problem with my 2003 325iT w/59K miles last week, right after an oil change. It did it more often when starting the car, and once or twice when accelerating. Then it stopped smoking and hasn't in several days. My mechanic neighbor suggested that it may have been too much oil, that has corrected itself by burning off. I hope he's right. I figure the smoke stopping is either a good thing or a really bad thing. No engine warning lights or anything, so I guess all is well.
