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?

White smoke out the tail pipe is a sign of water! Black smoke is excess carbon, dark grey is oil.

Possible that you have a leaking head gasket that is getting water into the cylinders?

I have a 1998 dodge avenger it runs and starts right up but it has a raddling sound ,thick white smoke comming from my tail pipe and oil all over my motor what does it sound like ? A blown head gasket ,...


White smoke from the tail pipe is caused by moisture in the engine being burned off. Some is normal on a cold engine but the rattle and amount of smoke you describe are a sure sign of a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the cylinders.

A few tell tail Signs to look for are
1. Excessive Pressure in radiator and car over heats
2. Look under oil cap when antifreeze and oil mixes it becomes a cream-ish white like heavy cream almost. It may be under there.
3. White smoke all the time out the tail pipe
4.loosing antifreeze but there is no visible leak.
5. Antifreeze in oil or oil in antifreeze.
