You may have a valve cover gasket leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold.

I have white white smoke coming from under the coolant tank, when starting the car cold in the morning, driver side


I was going to say that white smoke wouldn't be oil but I see that you figured that out. Look for loose coolant hose clamps on or near the reservoir or possibly a small crack in the reservoir itself. As a general rule for gasoline engines: White smoke = coolant, Blue smoke = oil, Gray smoke = fuel, Black smoke = "Uh oh, that can't be good." :-)

I have a 2006 Jaguar S-Type, on some times when stopped at lights i get white / blue smoke come from the engine front near side, Jaguar seems to think this is normal, but not to sure , does anyone els


no smoke is normal unless from an exhaust when cold. Sounds like you have an oil leak, some how the oil is dripping onto the exhaust.
No self respecting Jaguar dealer would say this is normal.

Smoking thick white smoke from tailpipe


  • A little is to be expected when first starting an engine.
  • White smoke coming out the tailpipe more than just a little at start up means is that your engine is burning antifreeze. Usually a head gasket leak, cracked head or cracked block.
  • I know this is not good news but please don't "shoot" the messenger. I answered this question so you would not be stuck somewhere with a seized engine. Which is what is going to happen in the near future.

I have white smoke coming from my tailpipe in my 01 chevy impala, also engine coolant is leaking on the right side of the radiator where a little white smoke comes out if the car is running for about 10...


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?

Hesitating, has white smoke, and now sputtering


White smoke + engine not fully working = head gasket failure. Replace it.

White smoke heavy when started and then goes away...drives and after awhile rides alittle rough..Iwas told it might be something else besides head gaskets....


Depends on how much smoke. A little puff that goes away quickly is no cause for concern the flat six engine does get oil deposits under the piston skirt when parked and is considered normal.

Excessive smoke (fogging for mosquites) indicates a failed oil \ air separator. Confirm by removing the oil fill cap with the engine running - if the vacuum tries to **** your hand into the oil tube, your separator is a goner.

Not excessively difficult to replace yourself. The part is about $300 and you can replace it in a couple of hours, it is located at the rear of the engine, passenger side, top.

My 300zx got smoke issue but im not sure.smoke come both sides when i start the car.it got little oil leak from turbos.but once engine got hot the smoke goes away.when driving it doesnt smoke.but it...


It sounds like you may need valve seals.
The oil sits in the head after the engine is cut off and leaks around the seals into the cylinder.
When you start the engine it burns the oil and sends the smoke out of the tailpipes.
It does not hurt anything much if it is not to bad.

White smoke from exhaust


If you are getting clouds of white smoke out the exhaust it is a good indicator of antifreeze getting into one or more of the cylinders. I bought a "Great" car sight unseen from a friend once and when he pulled in the drive the whole car disappeared in a cloud of white smoke that only left when he shut the engine off. I found head gasket leaks in half the cylinders. It takes very little coolant to cause the white smoke. If you are absolutely sure of zero coolant loss perhaps the smoke is a little blue--an indication of burning a little oil from a sloppy turbo bearing. Try the nose test-- it may give you the answer. Burning oil has a distinctive smell.
