I had the same thing happen to me about a half year ago with my 2002 Montero Sport. With this, there were seals that had gone out. I payed a pretty penny to get them done, but it did the trick. Probably not a cracked head.

If it continues to do this while you drive, it is a sign of water/coolant in the exhaust due to a cracked head, block or most likely headgasket going out. Deal with this immediately before you need a whole new motor...

There is white smoke coming from the exhaust shooting out a watery substance. the white smoke gets worse as i drive it. there is no water in the oil or milky sludge build up and dont need to add water.


This acts and sounds suspiciously like a blown head gasket. You can't fix it if it is. I suggest you check your oil for water (pull the dip stick, is the oil milky white?). Get your car to your mechanic as soon as you reasonably can before you cause much more damage if this is a blown head gasket.

I have a 1999 mitsubishi montero sport with 3.0L engine smokes a lot and it does not goes away.


White smoke is antifreeze leak into cylinder.
Blue smoke is oil passing by rings or valve stems.
Black smoke could be gasoline problem or tune up problem.

Wish you luck on this repair.

My 2002 montero was smoking really bad (white smoke) it smelled like burning plastic. I took it home and let it sit for 1/2 hour. I started it and the smoke faded away, but when i accelerate to take off it...


HAVE YOU NOTICED COOLANT LOSS,RECENTLY?KEEP THE COOLANT LEVELS FULL,CHECK TO SEE FOR ANY LOSS AT ALL! OIL SMOKE IS MORE BLUE THAN WHITE,BUT FUEL CAN HAVE A LIGHT BLUE SMOKE.Antifreez more whitesh with a similar smell of antifreeze.

1998 montero sport is blowing out heavy white smoke, there is oil in the vehicle


If your engine is producing white smoke this is anti-freeze making its way in to the cylinders. I highly recommend NOT running it until corrected. Have a compression check run to find where problem is and correct. Hopefully just blown head gasket, possible though cracked, warped head. If you feel a confident mechanic you can do this on your own, otherwise you'll need to take it to a shop for repais : (

Sorry, wish I had better news,

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport that has condensation and light white smoke coming out the back exhaust-what would cause this and how do I fix it?


If this goes away after warming up and driving for a while, dont worry about it .Its moisture that seeps in as exhaust system cools down, then when you start up water trapped in muffler boils off.

1999 mitsubishi montero sport white smoke


the weakest link from water entering engine is intake manifold losing its torque. their are four water ports right next to valve ports. two in front two at rear of intake manifold. they warp fairly easy.so check before re installing
