Either a blown head gasket, or bad oil control rings on the pistons.

Can too much oil in my car cause white smoke to pour out muffler


Absolutely yes in spades. Also it can cause internal damage to the engine if not corrected right away. Also check the engine air filter as it may be full of oil along with the plastic box that it is in.

Ticking & white smoke after replaced intake gasket


Sounds like coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Potential causes in order of significance: Intake manifold gasket (might not have been done right), Head gasket(s), cracked cylinder head, or, cracked engine block. Check the oil. If it looks like chocolate milk it means the coolant and oil are mixing

My car does not keep oil in it. About every few days i'm having to add oil because it starts ticking, what would cause this? Also, what would cause white smoke to come from my tailpipe?


oil leaks could be coming from a few spots ,valve cover gasket ,oil pan gasket and a bad harmonica balancer seal ,and the white smoke coming out your tail pipe is a sign of a blown head gasket ,check your dip stick and if the oil is creamy is your head gasket

2000 vw beetle 1.8L, after car warms up and comes to stop, on take off it blows white smoke from muffler. does not overheat, no sign of coolant in oil dipstick no coolant leaks. any possibilities or...


this sounds like valve stem seals. Pressure test the cooling system, to be sure. I presume that you would get the same smoke if you were to have a long decelerate and go back on the throttle....?

Coolant smoke is usually TONS of smoke, oil smoke less so, and the oil is somewhat bluer, but hard to tell if you have the Cat burning off some of the oil...

MY SUZUKI GET TOO MUCH WHITE SMOKE,BUT I HAVE PUT ENGIN FLUSH, CHANGE THE OIL AND THE OIL FILTER,ADD ANTISMOKE TO FUEL BUT NO CHANGES PLEASE!!!


There has been an issue of Suzuki engines smoking due to the PCV. valve or the baffles under the valve cover. One method of curing this is to place an oil separator between the vacuum line from the intake and the PCV. This will make for the need to keep an eye on it as it will fill up with oil eventually thus negating the purpose of placing it there in the first place. I think the big fix would be to remove the valve cover and check the oil baffles and filter therein. The problem is that oil builds up at the location of the PCV and is getting sucked into the intake via the vacuum hose to the intake. The quick fix? unplug the PCV and plug up the vacuum hose to the intake. This will get you by until you can get it to a mechanic. Anyway, That what I know. hope it helps

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


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).

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.

Smokine exhaust.


Take the pcv valve out of the hose and check it...Shake it,if it rattles it probably is good..But a new one would not hurt.Make sure any other ventilation hoses are routed right.If it only smokes while the hose is connected,then it is pulling oil from the valve cover into the intake and burning in the combustion chambers...Check your oil level as well...Good Luck!!!
