Why would water be in muffler


Burning gasoline generates some water. When your truck is cold, that water condenses in the muffler. Normal.

My 95 Integra smoke at the start white smoke what is that five minutes later it goes away


White Smoke --usually a sign of a failed head gasket
or other issue, allowing coolant into the cylinder & a major
repair

White Smoke only on start up after sitting (Not Lasting 5 Min)
is raw fuel (gasoline) from leaking injectors, leaking fuel into
the cylinders

Injectors can fail,wear,leak or be dirty & NO you can not clean them

Forget the Genie in a Bottle The injectors have to come out & be
mailed away for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

That condition - the raw fuel- will over heat your exhaust converter
& ruin it as well as many other problems-lack of fuel control the
main one.

When the I turn on the van, It starts to smell like gas and exhaust. Also while smoke is coming out of the muffler.


white smoke signifies water so its a head gasket without a doubt so you have two choices either trade it in quick or have it repaired but you could ask a local mechanic to give it a quick look in case the white smoke is blue in which case its oil

I have an 01 Impala 3.8 engine. At first start-up white smoke is seen, smells like raw gas, and tail pipe is black as coal. Fuel milage isn't good either. Would the regulator be bad?

White smoke coming from the exhaust smells gas.


white smoke usually means that your car is dumping raw fuel into the cylinder without burning off. You may have a bad injector or fuel pressure regulator.

WHEN IT RAINS THE NEXT DAY WE START IT WHITE SMOKE COMES OUT THE MUFFLER WITH A STRONG SMELL OF GAS.


White smoke (steam) indicates antifreeze burning in the cylinder, or trying to, check again to see if it's blue tinted smoke,(almost looks white, but has a tint of blue, and it lingers in the air a lot longer) check the radiator level, and a compression check will determine the condition of each cylinder, evaluate the spark plugs, (there are charts on line) (this determines if the air fuel mixture it correct) let me know what the out come is.

If the smoke is blue it is burning oil. If this is a 3.0 liter engine this is common as the valve guides have dropped which allows oil to draw down the valves stems into the cylinders. If your smelling raw gasoline park it as it may be a fuel leak. If the smike is white your burning antifreeze; this may even have a sweet odor to it. If this is the case you have big engine troubles, bad head hasket, cracked head or ???
I hope this may have helped,
