White smoke = Burning antifreeze
Probably head gasket

SOURCE: 97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: white smoke and a smell of fuel

The white smoke is from anti freeze. The smell of gas in your oil is probably from the same cause. I do beleive you did not clean the milled ares good enough before installing one or both of your gaskets. Just in case you did loosen one of the head bolts up for any reason....One bolt I do beleive on the right front bank of this engine has to be also sealed before re enstalling it for coolant will pass through it if not sealed

White Smoke when i put gas in car


The most common cause of blue (or worse still) being expelled through the exhaust system is extreme wear in the engine, or, if you're extremely fortunate a significant OVERFILL of the engine oil level. One other possible, though unlikely cause, is a fault in the engine's scavenging system.
Has this problem occurred suddenly without warning? Had the car been serviced immediately before this event, or the engine oil topped up?

2001 Dakota compression loss, smells like gas, white smoke from exhaust


Sorry but this has happened to me before, you might have a blown head gasket. that is where oil and or water are getting in to the piston cylinder and causing the white smoke cause the oil and water is being burnt or boiled.take it to a shop unless you have all the right tools and knowledge to do this job. i cost me like $1500 labor and parts.

Running fine, then blew lots of white smoke that smelled like diesel, cut off and won't start again. Dee


If this is a gas engine You have probably blown a head gasket. If its a diesel engine of later years 03 or later you probably have an injector failure and or a injector pump failure. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Dodge dakota vacume problem


You need a diagnostic box to tell you what the problem is.......if it is a evap leak,it could be anywhere,the hoses,the gas tank seal,a cracked hose.If you can go to a dealer they might have a smoke machine, they watch to see where white smoke is escaping from.Which is impossible to tell other wise. Could even have over filled the gas tank,that would give you an engine light......
