It's either that oil is leaking or the sensor that needs to be replaced. Take it to the BMW and have it fixed before it creates more problem and cost you more money.

Testimonial: "thanx ZJ. :-) Yea I read about some similar situations online yesterday here and other places. I appreciate your opinion and believe your right. i got some block sealer and will carefully follow its instructions. The process is to warm the engine till the heater is blowing warm air with the heater all the way up Only problem is my heater doesnt blow warm air only cold to luke. so ill have to assume its warm over the coarse of a few minutes. then shut the engine off and drain the radiator. then fill it with water again and again till its clear water then drain it empty. then with three quarts of water mix the block seal and dump it in the radiator and turn the car on immeadiately then etc as the instructions say. If this works I just scored a nice car for $800 and my white smokd problem will be gone"

Black smoke from the exhaust is an indication of the engine running too rich. Probably bad fuel injection system.

When I go to crank my car up white smoke comes out but the only time it do it. How do I fix this?

Sounds like white smoke is antifreeze. It might be leaking all of the time. Does your antifreeze level fall gradually over a week's time?

I have bmw 525 diesel. I see excess white smoke

white smoke from a diesel is usually lack of fuel, black smoke is to much fuel, check your fuel filters for restriction. this is providing that the smoke is not coolant in the exhaust but if that's the case it should be overheating. also if it is cold were you are you might have a fuel gelling problem that will also cause white smoke. just put some anti-gel in the fuel and see if the problem goes away.

It's the automatic choke!

The choke is "closed" or barely open... When cold, the engine needs a RICH mixture (more gasoline, less air). When the engine warms up, it requires a LEAN mixture (less gas, more air).

It is probably creating BLACK tailpipe smoke ... that means unburnt gasoline. (Blue smoke is OIL, white smoke is WATER).

Put the parking / emergency brake ON.
1. Remove air cleaner assembly from intake, use a carb cleaner spray or throttle body spray cleaner and spray just a little. (AutoZone $5)
2. Find the accelerator2.gif arm under the hood.
3. start car, rev the engine to make sure how to operate the accelerator from under the hood.
4. Carefully spray into carb / throttle body and work the accelerator ... don't let the engine die...
5. Watch out for "backfire"... it may create a small flame out of the carb. It will extinguish itself in one second.

6. You may need to do this two, three times.
7. Add a "complete fuel system2.gif cleaner" to your next tank of gas ($8).

That's it! ... pretty cheap, too.

Hope this helps!
