Check the water in the radiator and your oil. If either has contaminated the other then good chance your head gasket has gone.

Try a compression test. If one or two cylinders is way lower than the others also a good sign your head gasket is in trouble.

Solution.... Replace the head gasket :)

I have had head gasket replaced in my 2007 Pontiac Solstice but I still have white smoke coming out of my tail pipe; What can be wrong???


Still have coolant leaving the exhaust,
means the problem wasn't diagnosed &
repaired properly


Not too many choices there

Head Gasket,intake,cracked head

Sounds like the head gasket wasn't
the only issue,something was missed
during the last reapair

White smoke coming out of the tail pipes


You don't say what the make model and year is, but yes it could be an intake gasket.
It could also be a leaking head gasket among other things.

No power when I step on the gas and is smoking bad


Smoke from tail pipe or smoke from under hood?
A general rule of thumb if it is coming from tail pipe the color of smoke will tell you a lot.

White and thick means head gasket failure, Blue means oil is being burned.

I would recommend you check the seal of everything and make sure it is cleaned that had to do with vacuum or fuel distribution. EGR valve (gasket fails sometimes) IAC valve, MAP and MAF sensors, Fuel injectors, FPR (this will need replaced if leaking),

Also check you coolant and oil look for signs of either one mixing with one another, smell you coolant and make sure it don't smell like gas either, look around where the head meets the block and make sure you don't have any coolant leaking there. The smoke if from the tail pipe makes me think head gasket and these are simple checks. They are not 100% diagnosis but can lead you to the problem.

Also one obvious thing would be make sure no one put anything in your gas tank.

I would most likely look at the injectors first then the head gasket next.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Would a blown head gasket cause oil to come out in weird places in my 1994 eclipse


the only way you can tell you blew a head gasket is if there is white smoke coming out of tail pipe or if there is anti freeze mixed with your motor oil ,check the dip stick if oil is creamy then you have a blown head gasket ,check your valve covers and hoses for leaks

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.

Blown head gasket if antifreeze is coming out from the tail pipe and yes the engine will still run, but not for long. Antifreeze is corrosive to the crank shaft bearing and will cause you a new engine if engine keep running with antifreeze mixed with the oil.
