One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Why does 2006 nissa sentre SE-R SP 1.8 L make a loud exhaust noise? is it just a muffler?


It could possibly be a baffle in the muffler that is causing it to vibrate with acceleration from the engine, or even a exhaust leak from a connection that broke or the gasket has failed. The catalytic convertor might also be the culprit. I would take the vehicle into a shop that specializes in exhaust work and let them put it up on lift to see whats actually going on.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

My 1996 nissan sounds "clogged up" Once and awhile white smoke comes out of the muffler, but not consistent. When I first start it in the morning, it stalls about 3 to 4 times and then seems fine. ...


Sounds like water in the fuel system. White is water in the cylinders. Check the fuel filter and let me know. If its not this then I will advise further. Cheers

Engine and coolant light keeps coming on after travel valve was f


1st before you drive the car make sure the coolant level is ok,check oil. If the smoke coming out the muffler is white you could have a bad intake gasket or head gasket, check to see if there is coolant in oil, if the oil looks like chocolate milk you have an internal coolant leak. The lights are probably telling you your engine is overheating and low on coolant.
