Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

2001 Toyota Celica GT missing and smoking really bad. Smoke is white and smells like raw gas. The red 5 amp fuse that fits in the panel at location 5, 6, 7, 8, keeps blowing also. Any idea what could be...


Sounds like a head gasket I am afraid... with coolant burning off. Are you running low on coolant, check the header tank in the middle front of the engine bay. If this is getting low you need to have a garage check your compression.

It has white smoke when u run it for 10 min it stops


Sounds like a bad head gasket. Check your oil after car sat all night. See if there is white , or any signs of water in your oil. Smell dipstick at the same time to see if there is the smell of gas in the oil. While car is cold check the coolant for traces of oil in the cooling system. , or the smell of gas present. When the head gasket goes,it no longer separates the different ports for oil, coolant, and gas mixtures. What happens is that coolant gets into your engine cylinders where gas, oil, and air mix, and ignite. This causes steam to come out of the tail pipe. If you are going to change it yourself, keep me informed and I can walk you through it. What size motor is in the car?

it could be a head gasket starting to go, letting coolant seep in and not allowing the fuel to completley detonate, I blew a head gasket and it would still run, but it poured out smoke, and smelled like burnt antifreeze and gas

I only get 15 miles on a gallon of gas, when I try to speed up the car starts jerking and If I puch on the exsalrater it wont speed up and I can smell gas. If I have the heater on it's much worse


If you smell the gas I would have it checked you may be dumping to much fuel into the carburetor or may have a fuel leak which can cause a fire.

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after warming up it stops smoking.


The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

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.

2005 amante V6 started running rough, smell of raw gas, chk eng light on white smoke smelling of raw gas. changed plugs , wires, ran injecter cleaner through, gets about 1 mile per dollar of gas ....


Run a compression test. Sounds like a bad head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinder and causing misfire. I think you will find one (or two adjacent) cylinders have much lower compression than the others. There should not be more than 20% difference from highest to lowest.

My 1999 Ford Escort LX has a problem with the clutch. It is a hydraulic clutch and a manual transmission. I need a diagram to show where the drain and filler plugs are in the transmission so that I can...


When you remove your gas cap do you have alot of pressure releasing out of you gas cap? Also do you smell it more while your running the a/c or do you smell it as if it where in the car? You might want to see if the fuel pump gasket was replaced when you had the new gas tank installed or possibly check under the hood for injectors or the pressure regulator. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.
