My bmw x5 is smoking and loosing power any ideas???

Has the car overheated recently or in the past? If you are seeing white smoke from the exhuast you may have a cracked cylinder head or blown head gasket. If you are seeing white smoke from the exhaust, check the oil for signs of coolant (milky brown oil color or any foamy white on the dipstick) Also check you coolant level to see if it is lower than normal. If the smoke you are seeing is black you should also check you oil level. (could be a burned valve).

Hi. This will occur if there is an issue that concerns the integrity of your head gasket(s). The gasket(s) seem to be worn. this will cause the coolant to leak into the combustion chambers,in return, causing the white smoke, during acceleration.

This will, also, cause major coolant consumption if it is not corrected asap. replacing the head gasket(s), will solve this issue.

1993 saab turbo CSE. limphome mode, possible head gasket leak

Things can only get get worse and that means more expense. Like mine, better to do the head gasket asap while it's not too expensive or at least get the head bolt torque settings checked after the rebuild as they may need tweeking.

I have a 1993 bmw 318i with 220,000 0n the clock. rough idol.

White smoke means water getting into cylinders. Usually leaking head gasket, or possible intake manifold gasket if the manifold is heated with water! You need to see your service people again. Weather conditions should never cause this problem. The oil leak might be fixed by tightening all of the perimeter bolts on the oil pan.

Alot of white smoke when i turn the car on more when i accelerate and burnt metal or sweet acid smell 1993 lexus gs 300

If the car is sluggish, it's most likely a catalytic converter based on the information you're providing. Apart from that, white smoke is also an indicator that the head gasket is bad. To check for the head gasket, Start the car and while its running, check the engine oil. If it's frothy and/or you see water beads on the dipstick, this is a good indicator of a bad head gasket. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

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.

Coolant leak

sounds like you may have had a head gasket failure, sorry for the bad news but white smoke from tail pipe = head gasket (big job)
