Check water level it may be water vapour from when you replaced the head gasket!
Or its a cracked head! or engine block
you should always have a crack test on heads & chaeck the flatness of thge head & engine block faces
I use a steel ruler & fealer guages to check any gaps

What could blue tailpipe smoke be from?

Your issue could be a few things. Simplest first would be the PVC valve. Other issue would be valve seals, valve guides or piton rings. The blue smoke is from your vehicle burning oil

Blueish white smoke comeing from exhaust

Hello There

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.

You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

Nissan cefiro s.touring vq20de consuming a lot of oil and white smoke coming from the exhaust

having a blue smoke no white with a lot oil consumption,means that you have a problem with either valve stem seals got hard and can not hold oil getting in the combustion chamber through the valves.Or your engine bores are worn due to long mileage if you have and the piston rings are not strong enough to hold oil below piston rings in the oil pan. or your piston rings or piston channels broken and oil goes into combustion chamber and burnt through the exhaust system. What you have too do? visit a qualified workshop for a correct inspection and decision taken.Good luck.

Toyota Caldina 1999, too smoke from exhaust

if it is diesel and you have black smoke you need fuel injectors either serviced or replaced also you must check the engine valves clearance. If your smoke is blue white smelling unburned fuel renew injectors.If it is blue white smelling oil and diesel then you will have piston rings and valve steam seals.

93 Lexus es300 white smoke coming from exhaust

White smoke indicates oil is getting into the combustion chamber either by worn piston rings or worn valve guides.
A compression test on all cyclinders can determine if the pistion rings are worn, The garage mechanic can carry out this test for you.
replacing piston rings is a major engine overhaul, other worn parts should be replaces at this time too. A refurbish engine swap may be a cheaper option unless you are can DIY.

Hi.. i have a 1993 mits lancer with a 4G15 engine(EFI),. my problem is iam always adding oil to the engine, it emits white smoke in my tailpipe, my sparkplug is always wet with oil, and recently oil is...

Your engine has an issue, on the cylinder with the wet spark plug, that is resulting in motor oil getting into the combustion chamber. The two main causes are a broken piston ring or worn valve guides/damaged valve guide seal. The former is a bigger issue as the pistons have to be removed to replace piston rings, which is a major undertaking and often reguires engine removal. The valve issue is significantly easier, which can be cured by what is called a "top overhaul". However, even a top overhaul is beyond the scope of a casual DIY pundit.

white smoke is you car burning water but you know that it sounds like you have ahair line crack in you engine block it doesnt show till you sit still the presure on your engine is pressing your block or head together keeping it from leaking but at idel it starts to leek what is the color of you oil if it is brown or milky that most likely the problem. they make a tester the you put on you radiator to dee if it bubbles if it does you have a blown head gasket or a cracked block or head. might want to look for an engine replacement. you can try liquid glass but it is only temporary and will ruin your engine in the long run. i dont recomend it but it can work for @ 200 miles if your luckey
