White smoke is usually antifreeze, There is now a red color antifreeze, maybe that is what you are seeing.. Pressure test the cooling system and resolve what that test reveals.

Hit a rail hard. pink fluid leak, white smoke from hood and exhaust, loud whine noise, car wont start now


Pink fluid? Would that be transmission fluid? You have cooling lines running from the transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator. Could that be the escaping fluid? Could the fluid have got on the exhaust and burned, and caused all the smoke? Or did the white smoke come out of the exhaust?
Check your fluids. Do you have pink coolant? Find and fix the leak, refill the lost fluid, and go from there. Good luck, drew.

My taurus dumped its transmission fluid


This is caused by an overheated transmission, the overheating is caused by an internal failure of a severe overloading of the transmission like towing.

The battery light came on and by the time i got home from work there was smoke coming from the engine. i opened the hood and noticed that there was transmission fluid all over the place. there didnt seem...


If it is spraying out like crazy it could be as simple as the dipstick is missing. I would start there. I left my dipstick out once and fluid get everywhere, which would cause the smoking engine effect.

Lots of smoke from the exhaust


Hi,

You didn't state the color of smoke. The color of smoke has different meaning or causes.

Black smoke is burning oil. Blue smoke is usually transmission fluid due to a leaking modulator valve in the older auto transmission. White smoke is due to water getting in to a cylinder from a bad gasket, cracked block or a cracked head.

Best regards.

Starts first time, no smoke on normal running, then rev up and white smoke comes out??? no wrong feul!!! changed air, oil and feul filters, but still throwing out white smoke on reving... can anyone help?...


It could be a coolant or transmission fluid leak in the combustion chamber. Check your coolant and transmission fluid to see if one or both are low. White smoke from the exhaust is a classic symptom of a blown head gasket, have your cooling system pressure checked. If that checks out good then have your transmission checked.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and white smoke at startup and now severe white smoke on occasion when driving. 16k miles, I drive about 600 miles a month.


White smoke or semi white can be produced in several ways. One way is oil this is normally a whitish blue to blue smoke and has the apparent smell of oil being burned. Next could be antifreeze when it is being burned it has a sweet type of smell and tends to dissipate in the air rather quickly and usually is because of a bad head gasket. Next is automatic transmission fluid which is normally found on automatic transmissions and its normally drawn into an engine thru a vacuum line via a defective transmission modulator valve or some other defective part. Transmission fluid is very apparent and billows out so bad that you can't see anything behind you. Last but not least another type of smoke that is not white but black is the presents of to much gas/fuel being burned in the engine. If one of these fluids is low and/or you notice one of the symptoms that I pointed out above, then you know where to start looking for a fix.

I would also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings.
