It is common to see white exhaust smoke when first starting a car, especially on cooler days. This is generally steam caused by condensation. As the engine warms up and the condensation dissipates the white exhaust smoke (steam) is no longer seen. If you still see white smoke when the engine is warmed up then you probably have coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Possible causes are warped head, blown head gasket or cracked block. Do you have unexplained coolant loss?
Good luck.

There is blue smoke coming from the tail pipe. I spoke to someone about it and they said its oil in the combustion chamber. If this is the problem, how much would something like that cost to fix?

Hi there,

This advice you received is correct.

Blue smoke emmitted from the tailpipe signifies the engine is burning oil.

Possibilities are:

  • BAD RINGS - and engine with bad rings will not only burn oil, there will also be a significant loss in power, especially noticeable when driving up hill.
  • BAD VALVE STEM SEALS - with this condition, blue smoke mainly appears during acceleration.
  • Turbocharger - if your engine is fitted with a turbocharger, the seals on the turbo could be leaking.
In regards to the Bad rings and Bad valve stem seals, this may require some serious money, unless your vehicle is covered by a warranty.

For Bad rings, you will need to have a "wet compression test" done on your engine to determine if the rings are bad. Having these replaced will be expensive and in some cases, a replacement engine (with a warranty) may be an alternative option (or sell your vehicle and put your money towards another vehicle).

For Valve stem seals, I suggest only having the stem seals replaced (nothing else - don't let them talk you into any major work) to see if this cures the problem first. If blue smoke is still emitted from the exhaust, then you may be up for a major valve job, in which case you should again consider a replacement engine (with a warranty) or selling your vehicle.

Hope this helps...

General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

Wite smok from exaust system. When starting some time wite smok and smell of burning oil. Some time do not smoking.Do not pick up from low speed fast. The engine is turbo and inter cooler

Smoke can be from rings worn out, cracked piston, valve guide seals if smokes at start up then stops, fueling issues if fuel is to rich but that smoke is usually black, also if head gasket is blown or head is cracked water burning turns into steam which looks like white smoke. This can also be why won't start just turns over.

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad

This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)

Sounds like you need a new turbo, the turbo is lubed by engine oil and shaft seals leaking into the intake.

X5 diesal blue smoke

Hi , if you have had a turbo failure on this vehicle , just replacing the turbo will not cure the cause of blue smoke . depending how bad the seals had gone in the turbo you would need to replace , the complete exhaust system , the crankcase breater , air intake manifold , air charger but only if these items have been contaminated with oil , they would not be able to be cleaned out , hope this helps , regards mark
