If you over heat the car,the most possible is that the head gasket it is blown,remember,black smoke is fuel,blue is oil,and white is water or antifreeze.

Blowing smoke


White smoke usually is coolant burning. Is engine loosing coolant? Small pop could have been head cracking, or possibly head gasket failing. If you are loosing coolant, time to remove the head to see what failed.

Hi, my golf mk1 1.6 1995 model makes a tapping sound when i drive it but it stops when i idle


Sounds like to me a small exhust leak either
a exhust manafold gasket or exhust flange
gasket or cracked exhust manifold.
Anything else would be enteral meaning
valves need to be set, bad lifter, bad rod bearing,
bad oil pump, or timing chain tensioner,
BUT I would be willing to put my money
on an exhust leak or timing chain tensioner
it's one of the 2

White smoke from exhaust from 06 hummer 3.5 no engine light on and run perfect, just the smoke that i do no like.


Sounds like a blow or cracked head gasket, the white smoke is either water or coolant being burned in the motor. With this type motor, I would get it checked ASAP before any more damage is done to the motor.

I have white white smoke coming from under the coolant tank, when starting the car cold in the morning, driver side


I was going to say that white smoke wouldn't be oil but I see that you figured that out. Look for loose coolant hose clamps on or near the reservoir or possibly a small crack in the reservoir itself. As a general rule for gasoline engines: White smoke = coolant, Blue smoke = oil, Gray smoke = fuel, Black smoke = "Uh oh, that can't be good." :-)

Coolant low is displayed. What type/brand coolant. Car was smoking.


If you are smokeing white smoke out your exhust and you are low on anti freeze do not drive this vehicle any further you have a bad head gasket or a cracked head either way it needs major engine work.If you drive it further you will destroy the engine. check your oil if you see white stuff on dip stick if you do your anti freeze is now in your oil .have serviced by a compatent mechanic.

Smoking, ideling rough,


Hi: What Color is the Oil coming out of your Tail Pipe? I'm Assuming its Motor oil and not Transmission Oil.Since you found white looking substance in your oil It sounds like you have a Blown Head Gasket or both.And could be a Crank Block or Head ,Pull your Spark Plugs out, And Have someone Crank engine over and see if you are getting that white Substance Which i assume is Motor Oil.If you are getting ANY out of ANY Spark Plug hole then Is fair To Say you have a Blown Or Cracked Head Gasket.THERES only 1 Other Alternative On Older Vehicles than Yours is ,They Had what was Called a Vacum Modulator That Attached to the Auto Transmission, I worked off of Vacum From The Intake Manifold,And if the Diafram in It went Bad it would **** Transmission Fluid up Through the Intake Manifold and Burn It through your Intake and would come out tail Pipe as a WHITE SMOKE,But it normally would not be in the Enging Oil Or Radiator.So i Would 1st Check the 1st Advise i have Given You.Pull The Spark Plugs. Hope This Helps.Please REply by Voting if this Helped Youat All,Thanks From the WYOCWBOY
