Terrible white smoke/fumes from exhaust

I recently had my oil changed. Since then I've only driven about 70 miles. Now my car has terrible white smoke and fumes coming from the exhaust (which it didn't before). It now runs rough. I checked my oil and it barely covers the end of the dipstick. What could be causing this. I'm afraid to drive it and it is the only car I have. It was running fine before the oil change.

Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

What caused white smoke from exhaust?


Generally, white smoke is engine coolant burning. If it only happened for a few seconds, you may have leaked some on the exhaust pipes.
I would check the engine oil and coolant levels with the engine cold, and then look for coolant leaks.

If you had white smoke then you have a blown head gasket. Even though it hasnt yet mixed with the oil you are still having the white smoke. Is there any water left in the radiator or reservoir?

I have a ford xe 351v8 it blows lots of black smoke


Black smoke tells me your piston rings are worn. Also the fumes you have explained tells me the valve seals are worn and leaking oil as well
The leaking valve seals and pistion rings will expell the fumes out through the exhaust. If you check your oil level every 50 miles and the oil level is down a half quart or more serious engine wear has occured and needs to be rebuilt soon

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....

White smoke from exhaust


White smoke from exhaust = water into the cylinders, when this happens it usually means head gasket gone or starting to go.
Check the water level, and take the car to the garage for a check up , if it is the head gasket, as I think, you risk to blow the engine at any time.
