You have a failed cylinder head gasket. Anytime that the gasket fails, coolant will get into the cylinders, and is pushed out of the exhaust, as steam. This explains the white smoke that you see. In short, you need to remove the cylinder head, and replace the gasket. This is a very difficult operation, I would suggest taking it to a professional.

STEAM COMMING FROM THE EXSAUST PIPE IS A BLOWN HEAD GASKET, WHAT HAPPENS OVER TIME THE ENGINE HEATS AND COOLS AND THINGS EXSPAND AND CONTRACT AND THE COOLING SYSTEM WILL WEAR A HOLE IN THE HEAD GASKET OR IN BAD CASES THE HEAD IS CRACKED IF THE ENGINE IS RUN FOR A LONG TIME OVER HEATED

Hi i hav read about water in oli & i hav 2E Tazz & i have my car for 4 year's & every time when i start my car there come black water out of the exhausts & that is for 4 years now what can be the prob


on initial start up of an engine , water and water vapor coming from an exhaust pipe is normal-- black water is just carbon or soot in the water
it is condensation formed during the combustion process in a cold engine
--very noticeable on cold mornings as spots of water and steam
as the motor warms up , the hotter combustion temperatures and hot exhaust system reduces visible steam to a point where it is not noticeable and the water has boiled off
as to water in the oil--- normal sump oil is light brown when new to dark chocolate to black as it gets old
if there is water in the sump oil the color is normally a grey color and has a condition like curdled milk
to add further for your pre start checks --- the coolant should be a bright green or red --depending on the anti-boil/freeze in use--- but if you have an automatic with a faulty oil cooler in the radiator tank, the coolant color goes to a pink.

What does mean wayer coming from tailpipe 2000 Silverado


During combustion many gasses are produced as well as particulates. Water vapor (think super fine steam) is also produced and depending on the temperature outside and/or the temperature of the exhaust system (e.g. when first started it would be cool) the water vapor condenses and drips from the tail pipe. Just like water drips from an ice cold beverage container on a hot, humid day. ;-)

Steam rises from the radiator after car idles for 10 minutes. Replaced thermostat. No improvement. Could this be one of the radiator fans as I noted it does not turn on. The water guage remains wh


If the steam is rising from the radiator and not from the overflow tank or hose then you do have a leak.. in the radiator. check for a cracked tank or fitting where the hoses connect. If it is making steam the guage is probably defective. Find out where that steam is coming from ! If the car is making steam the rad fan should probably be running.. I do not know about your particular car but some times the secon fan only comes on with A/C use or extream heat.

Steam coming from tail pipe more after warm but temperature normal;


I am here to help, in fact I own a 94 explorer. Most of the exhaust system is steel and here in Southern Canada when even mildly cold (say under 30 degrees F the system will steam for quite a while).

If no water in the oil or vice versa, no great loss of coolant you are most likely ok. How long have you owned the Explorer?

If I have misunderstood your issue let me know in what way.

STEAM FROM EXAUST


When you first start the car in cold weather it is normal for the exhaust to emit water vapour (steam) until the engine reaches normal running temperature.

white smoke from the exhaust and overheating would almost certainly mean a blown head gasket.
the head gasket has gone between a cylinder and a cooling channel so exhaust gasses can get in to the cooling system resulting in the boiling and water from the cooling system is getting into the cylinder resulting in the white smoke (actually steam) from the exhaust.
the exhaust manifold is a separate issue that can be replaced when the head gasket is repaired.

Steam coming out of tailpipe


upon starting this is normal in most cases, If there is water or steam from the tailpipe after you have been driving around awhile and the engine is at operating temperature….then you might have a problem, but from what you said I don’t think you have a problem. this is caused by condensation in exhaust pipe. especially after a warm day.

The temperature gauge shoots up and the car loses power and just stops ive just had to new water pipes fitted and its still cutting out and i keep filling the water up


turn it on and let it warm up(not overheat). turn off and see if it's leaking water from under the hood. if it is, pinpoint the location and try to repair, if nothing, check your exhaust while the engine is running, if you have whithe steam/vapor coming out of the exhaust, then you may have a blown head gasket.

whenever air is compressed, as inside your cylinders, water is squeezed out of the air and does not have time to evaporate back into the air until either it gets past the exhaust completely (you see tailpipes steaming on cold mornings) or if the exhaust system has reached sufficient temperature and actually allows the water to "steam" out of the system at an earlier location in the system, then yopu don't see steam.. Many exhaust systems are ruined quickly when drivers take short trips only and not long enough to reach high exhaust temperature. You can always tell, by looking at tailpipes on cold mornings, which drivers have just started out and which have been traveling a long distance because of the steam issue.
