White smoke comes through the exhaust due to leak in turbocharger seal.It can be solved by replacing the turbocharger kit.

My Isuzu Trooper was not revving as usual.Now it is emitting a lot of white smoke. So far,injectors have been pulled out and cleaned, emptied the fuel tank, flushed all fuel pumps and changed fuel filter...


Check the radiator fluid level. If the smoke is not present when it is first started, and after a short time later it begins to smoke, it may be a blown head gasket that is letting radiator water into the combustion chamber. The symptom of, "not revving as usual", would be an inconsistent engine speed at idle. If the fluid level is going down in the radiator, and you don't see fluid on the ground, with the exception of a small drip out the tail pipe when the engine first starts, a small amount of water in the combustion chamber will cause a lot of white smoke. It can be normal for a small amount of water to drip from the tail pipe, depending on humidity, but once the engine is warmed up, the, "white smoke", should not have moisture in it. A paper towel held at the tail pipe for a few seconds should not get wet after the engine is warmed up, and the radiator fluid level should not decrease if no fluid is leaking on the ground.

Possibly a blown head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinders to be burned. White smoke is usually coolant burning. Have the engine's compression tested to verify.

On my 1996 honda accord sometimes it won't start and when I drive it whitesmoke come out the exalts pipe what could be the problem?


The white smoke from the tail pipe, indicates the car is burning coolant. If your car oveheat, or coolant level in the radiator is low, than you have a bad cylinder head gasket. Wait for the engine to cool down, before removing the radiator cap.

My car is emitting white smoke from the tail pipe. lots of it


White smoke is an indication that coolant is entering the combustion chamber. This is normally caused by a cracked head, blown head gasket, or both. STOP driving the car immediately or the engine will be destroyed. You will need to have the car towed to your mechanic and have a compression test run to verify if indeed you have this problem. Other symptoms are overheating, loss of coolant with no apparent leak, oil level overfull, air bubbles escaping from radiator, and a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. This is extremely serious and must be repaired. Hopefully if you did not continue to drive the vehicle after noticing this no serious damage has been done. The head will have to be removed, inspected, and head gasket replaced.

Lots of smoke comes out of tail pipe when crunk up and when i push the gas alot of water comes out


what is happening is your coolant(radiator fluid) is being burned somehow. if you rev the **** out of your engine all the time maybe your piston rings are bad. the smoke is caused by the evaporation of the coolant and the fluid is comeing out because coolant doesn't burn with your gas, therefor expelling it through your exhaust

It means that an engine with worn piston rings and/or bad valve seals are allowing excessive oil to enter the chamber.

White smoke exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....
