White smoke....Means a Blown Head gasket.. Now its not bad enough to stop the vehicle from running but its bad enough, to blow out white smoke..now sooner or later it will stop completly, but you dont want to warp the cylinder heads too bad, then you will have to replace them also, so you might want to fix this problem as soon as possible...and the muffler keeps going bad, becasue it is filling up with coolant/ or too much water, which it is not designed to do..You also maybe doing damage to your cat. converters also...so be careful....And Goodluck, and keep me posted...

So i got a 2004 dodge hemi 4x4 and while i was gunning it up a hill the oil cap blew off. Couldnt get it started for weeks.replaced pvc valve, oil looked good, coolant was good. Started but now blows heavy...


White smoke usually indicates coolant, try pressure testing it or use one of those head gasket leak test kits to be sure your head gasket isnt leaking. Did you try to pull codes and see if any came up?

Changed O2 sensors and white smoke starts pouring out of exhaust


White smoke is usually steam which would indicate a blown head gasket or crack in block. Hope it's something easier.

White smoke means blown head gasket. Black smoke means to rich of fuel. Backfire could be timing is out sounds like timing chain or belt is going.

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.
