You dont say weather its a petrol or diesel engine as there a slight differance in the answer and if a turbo on a diesel thats even more of a differance, but taking it a petrol .
Well to start with the white smoke Isent smoke its water and after going through the engine it turns into Steam and thats what you see..
Running on 3 clyinders is caused through 1 cylinder isent working as a engine should and has a bad valve or a broken piston ring or more and even a cracked head and gasket letting the water through,,,also the broken ring works like a oil pump as if not firing given you power then it works like a oil pump and pumps it into the cylinder that dosent work only pumping oil into the hot exhaust system while running.CAUSING SMOKE
And if a turbo then could be the turbo bearings worn and pushing oil into the engine and still doing the same as before.
Let me know how you get on. RON

Car started smoking heavy fuel smell coming from exhaust and idles rough


White smoke is water in the cylinders/exhaust. (bad head gasket) White with a bluish color is oil. Black smoke is to much fuel. Which do you have.

Bought a 02 impala. engine replaced 2-3 years ago. ac only cool on the passenger side and only getting about 10 a gallon and once white smoke was coming out of the exhaust. Any ideas on these issues??


You have 2 faults here. Get a good local mechanic to run through a few basic tests, cylinder compression, oil in the water, water in the oil. Rough running. My guess the head gasket has gone because white smoke is usually water in the engine.
Your AC is down to a further investigation.

Why sometime pleinty white smoke came out of exaust


White Smoke...
1. Typically normal condensation in the exhaust system converting to steam once engine is running and producing heat creates white smoke. Typically this lasts only a short period of time until condensation water in the exhaust system is gone.

2. If there is a problem, persistent white exhaust could be an indication of a water leak into the cylinders (e.g. cracked head or leaking head gasket. The good news is, this second case will normally will occur with other problems (e.g. consistent rough idle, or rough engine vibration at specific RPMs). If this is suspect, keep an eye on the oil with the dip stick and during next oil change (If any of the oil appears WHITE, there is a problem.). If this is a suspect problem, a test for the DIY'r mechanic would be to remove all the spark plugs, have another person turn the engine over, and watch for water mist to spray out of one or more cylinders.

Because you said sometimes, this sounds like normal condition.

I have a 93 Mazda .mx3 4 cylinder 5speed with white smoke from exhaust how do I check where it's coming from to cause the white smoke its minor on idol but when gas pedal pressed there is more visible...


White smoke from the exhaust may be an indication that coolant is leaking into the combustion chamber. This could be caused by a faulty cylinder head gasket, a cracked or warped heat or cracked block. Check the coolant level, and check to see if the oil dip stick has a milky look.

Running rough and white thick smoke from exhaust


sounds like you are burning coolant. sounds like you have a headgasket issue or cracked block. is your coolant level low?? in the overflow bottle and in the raadiator? something tells me that you will find that coolant is low. you are pulling coolant into the engine and it goes into the cylinder and pass the exhaust to the back of the car. the white smoke is the coolant burning off and thats why the car runs rough, because coolant is not flamable so it doesnt burn. this results in the spark plug not firing right and having rough running condition.

I have a 1997 bmw 740i. Check engine light came on (matco tool read multiple misfire code on #1, 2, 3 & 6 cylinder). Exhaust has white/blue smoke pouring out.


Multiple misfires usually are caused by a bad crank sensor, some times it can be a bad cam sensor but that usually does not go bad.

Car just started running rough with white gas smelling smoke comming from exhaust


Sounds like head gasket needs replaced or worse one of the heads is cracked leaking antifreeze into cylinder burning out the exhaust, would advise not to continue running as you can lock up the engine if antifreeze is leaking into the engine oil. It will seize the bearings blowing your engine.

My 94 mazda mx3 4 cylinder


Got spilt inside where? If it was the cylinders/combustion chambers the oil would have been burnt and gone in the first minute of running. White smoke is fairly common on cold morning due to condensation and disapears quickly, if it occurs at other times maybe it's coolant getting into the cylinders and maybe whoever did your head didn't do too good a job
