    How much oil did you put in the engine? How far above the full line does the engine oil dip-stick read?

White Smoke Coming from Engine?


It sounds like you need a good mechanic to fix your oil leaks. It's probably the valve cover gasket leaking oil on the cylinder head and it's running down on the hot exhaust manifold.

White smoke from exhaust


You probably have oil that spilled over onto the engine block and manifolds which is burning off while you drive. You could get some degreaser and clean the engine. You could also just keep driving it untill it stops smoking as long as it seems to be running OK.

White Smoke when i put gas in car


The most common cause of blue (or worse still) being expelled through the exhaust system is extreme wear in the engine, or, if you're extremely fortunate a significant OVERFILL of the engine oil level. One other possible, though unlikely cause, is a fault in the engine's scavenging system.
Has this problem occurred suddenly without warning? Had the car been serviced immediately before this event, or the engine oil topped up?

I had a look at the video and it looks like steam - to confirm oil will not evaporate but steam will disappear. If it is steam you have a blown head gasket again or a crack in the head, but you definitely seem to be getting water/steam into your crankcase.

White smoke out the exhaust


You will need to check head gasket. Please check the oil for coolant (milky deposition or presipitation). Also check if you loosing coolant and if coolant has oil in it.
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
Good Luck
