SOURCE: White smoke coming out of tail pipe and it smells like gas when warming up.

White smoke usually means that you have a blown head gasket,need to have it check out asap,could damage motor worse and cost more.How is your antifreeze in your over flow container,Is it low,check your oil and see what it looks like,might be milky.

Limited. Why would it be smoking after replacing one plug?

tail pipe can do 3 colors
white goes away fast ,called steam.

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 91 dakota is burning too much gas. I change wires, cap, rotor, sparkplugs and oxygen sensor. But still burning gas. What I mean by burning gas is that dark smoke comes out the tail pipe and you could...


Hello;Are there any service lights on in dash?It could be that the fuel pressure valve went bad,causing it to get to much fuel, and thats were the black smoke is coming from.

your tail pipe is always going to smell like gas the white smoke is oil being burned from worn out valve guides or rings.

My 92 ford is using excessive gas and has a bad gas smell with alot of smoke coming from tailpipe after i add gas


If the smoke comming from the tail pipe is black your running rich. If thats the case the entire fuel system has to be ckecked out. Injectors could be leaking, a bad pressure regulator,stuck return line ,a coolant temp sensor could be telling the ECU that the engines cold give her more gas. I don't recommend doing fuel service unless your qualified to do so for the obvious reasons.
If the smoke coming out of the tail is grayish you have a bad head gasket. If the smoke coming out of the tail is blue you have engine oil getting into the combustion chamber. keep me posted

Chances are it is water coming out this is normal to notice some water dripping out of exhaust periodically as the car runs, If the liquid actually smells like gas i am at a lose I have never heard of this occuring.

White smoke coming from exhaust, smells like gas


Check the fuel pressure regulator. It should have a vacuum line attached to it - disconnect the vacuum line and turn the ignition on - if fuel come out then that's your problem. DON"T do this while the engine is hot or you could start a fire!
