Usually caused by worn valve guides. This is not a serious problem unless you are getting a lot of oil on your spark plugs. check the plugs and consider replacing valve guides if oil begins to foul plugs.

When I start my car smoke comes out of tail pipe for a few seconds water all so coming out


Water and vapor (steam) coming from the tail pipe is normal and will stop after a few miles when everything is hot. That is one of the reasons exhausts need replacing as they rot with rust and is more evident on cars that only do low mileage as the exhaust does not get hot enough to boil off the water and it sits in the pipe slowly rusting it away. What you see as smoke is probably steam and is more evident on cold mornings. If the car is not using oil then I wouldn't worry.

My 2005 gmc canyon just started blowing smoke out tail pipe but it doesnt do it everytime i start it. is this bad?


Possibly a leak in the head gasket. Take out the plugs and see if they are water wet. Run a compression check.

4g15 engine carburetor smoking only when engine is cold


smoking from where?, front of car, middle or tail pipe.


is this your first car, or first car and first winter (white steam?)
there are 3 kinds of smoke
black , carb flooding (ask why)
white, oil, burning, take for ever to go away
white steam, goes away fast and smells like Antifreeze, sweet and nasty.

and all carbs smoke black in the tail pipe end, when cold, unless
you very carefully tune the choke plate.

1999 blazer only starts when primed and then wont start after sitting


Black smoke is usually extra fuel, but you say you are priming it to start so that could be why.
Have you checked fuel pump pressure before and after cranking ?

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

White smoke is coming out of the tail pipe when first started and idling but goes away at road speed. when the car is shut off and restarted smoke comes out again


some of the time when a vehicle sits over night or for several hours you will get some water vapor that looks like white smoke until the vehcile warms up the cats on the exhaust system. Double check coolant level make sure it is where it should be if not I would say you have a head gasket problem and you need to have it fixed.

SMOKE PROBLEM


Do me a favor, check you radiator fluid level. Tell me if it is low. If it is.....I hate to say it, but you may have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. You are getting coolant into the combustion chambers.....
