WHITE SMOKE INDICATE SLIGHT HEAD GASKET.STOP SMOKING WHEN ENGINE GET HOT.HEAD EXPANDS ENOUGH TO STOP THE LEAK.BUT I SEEN CASES WHERE THE HEADS HAD TO BE PRE TORQUE AFTER ENGINE OVERHAUL.ALSO YOUR ENGINE WILL USE OIL UNTIL PISTON RINGS SEAT.SO KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL.

White smoke coming out of tailpipe when starting what could it be?


The white smoke is most likely burning antifreeze due to a blown head gasket. The oxygen sensor code is most likely an oxygen sensor that has been destroyed by the anyifreeze. Replacing the oxygen sensor will not do any good until the problem with the engine is fixed. The trans code is anybody's guess because there are probably 50 different transmission codes possible and you did not mention which one you are getting.

White smoke but engin was done over and new exqust


Is there alot of smoke or does it go away after the car warms up? If it is alot of smoke that does not stop then have the mechanic check for coolant leaks into the engine. Usually caused by a blown head gasket. If it goes away after awhile then you have a rich fuel mixture and will have to have the emmision system checked but could be normal.

Oil from turbo mixes with air resulting in huge volume of black smoke. Likewise, oil from turbo seeps thru connection between aluminum pipe connecting turbo and rubber pipe with nylon coating connected...


Your turbo has provisions for oil to cool bearings and the seals have blown out, although from my experience the result is white smoke if it is pumped into the hot exhaust. The reason it goes is usually a combination of things-high boost at cold temperatures, thicker oil under start up conditions or running oil that is a higher viscosity than recommended. Your crankcase pressures, the condition of the PCV and subsequent systems also contribute to this problem

The return path from the turbo is sometimes the issue and has to be clear, and I think the turbo seals could be bad, but black smoke is usually associated with excessive fuel.. You will also get alot of smoke when the oil return is slow to return the oil to the sump and it backs up into the turbo. It forces it's way out of the seals making it smoke.

White smoke, water vapor at initial start-up. drives a few miles, smokes again. could it be a vacuum regulator? 2001 jaguar s-type


Water vapor coming out of the exhaust at initial start-up is normal; that is condensation that collects when the engine is not running. White smoke at start-up depends on a couple of things. Tell me, where do you live? When the weather is very cold, all engines will emit steam (white smoke) when they are first running; this stops after the engine has been running a while and is warm.

In short, if this is only happening at first start of the morning and goes away over time, there is nothing wrong.

If, however, the "white smoke" continues and never stops, you may have a blown head gasket.

White smoke from exhaust


Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
