White smoke = water or coolant leak

Check any gasket loss or internal engine damage.

White smoke


White smoke is coolant burning. If the smoke has a blue tint to it that is oil burning. If the smoke has a grey tint that is excess fuel. Any way you look at it, I think a trip to your local garage is in order for an accurate diagnosis.

1996 volvo 850 turbo smoke coming out exhaust


I assume you mean exessive smoke?
White smoke = watersteam - usually cracked cylinderhead gasket
Replace gasket
Black / dark smoke preferrably visible when accelerator is let up after acceleration = oil - usually enters the cylinders through worn valve seals.
Repclace seals (can be done without lifting cylinder head)

Not accelerating and letting white smoke out exhaust


it sounds like the engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers most likely due to a leaky head gasket or a cracked cylinder head and will cause loose of power in acceleration
