SOURCE: White smoke exhaust

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

SOURCE: 1998 leganza motor smokes when it warms up

If the smoke is white, or steam it is water. you might have cracked the head or warped it. Did you get it looked at before you put the new gasket on? If the smoke is black then it is oil. Do a compression check and see if you don't have a bad cylinder. They should all be about the same give or take 5 lbs.

SOURCE: smoke and oil smell at start up sometimes

Hey WendyandRon..there is 3 types of smoke..that comes from a combustion engine that has a problem..there is black smoke..which means it running excessively rich with fuel..the next is a blue smoke.which means oil consumption..which could mean the engine is worn..but not always..there is other factors..and then white smoke..from a bown head gasket..and if ya hang out at the rear exhaust probably can tell me what it really smells like..and we can go from there

SOURCE: Audi 1.8T sport Auto (2001) heavy smoke and engine buring smell

The engine could be shot, oil is being burnt off by the actions of being sucked into the bores via worn piston rings then ejected out of the exhaust

If you sent the car in for an MOT and a Service I would ask the garage what they did to it as the car would have failed on its emissions test if that much oil was coming out .

It could have been a fault on the oil pump or lack of oil in the first instance and maybe an overfill on the service

You paid your money now go back for redress

How to replace thermostat in 3.6 vz commodore 95 model

Not fimiliar with commodore engineering (im from the US, we dont have those!) but follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine, theres the thermostat. Remove everything thats in the way of removal, swap the thermostat then reassemble. Sorry if this is to vague to help, but for some people, this would be the only clue they need to just hop into it!

VZ commodore alloytech motor, oil in coolant but no water in oil

It could be a crack or head gasket, when the engine is cold the steel is contracted and there is little water pressure, when you start the engine the oil pressure comes up quick and stays above the coolant pressure, I believe the radiator cap is set at 19-23lbs before it pushes past it. When the block heats up the steel expands and opens the crack or pushes by the head gasket.
