If you are getting a continuous cloud of white smoke make sure to check your coolant level as your problem seems to be a possible head gasket issue.

Does this cloud have a sweet smell to it? Coolant has a distinct odor when it is burned.

Also check the oil. If the oil has a milky look to it on the dip stick you have a head gasket issue.

Why is it that my multicab sometimes emits white smoke and gone after a minute and with burned engine oil smell?


Blue smoke is oil,white smoke steam or trans mission fluid. Check that auto fluid not going up a vacuum line if it has a modulator.

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

check the pcv valve if bad it will allow engine to **** oil into the air intake and cause smoke,another things is to test the head gasket could be burning a little coolant
