White smoke from the tail pipe is caused by moisture in the engine being burned off. Some is normal on a cold engine but the rattle and amount of smoke you describe are a sure sign of a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the cylinders.

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

I have a 1998 ford windstar V6. and im having lots of white smoke pouring out tail pipe with lite water what can this be


It's possible that the white smoke you are seeing is from coolant entering the exhaust, however, I would think that the engine would also be running rough or be difficult to start should this be the case. I would start by checking the coolant level. If the level is very low then it's possible that you have a head gasket leaking which is allowing coolant to enter a cylinder and then be forced into the exhaust where it will turn into a thick white steamy/smoke that takes a while to dissipate after it exits the tailpipe. Whatever the source or cause of the smoke is, it's possible that it could cause some serious engine damage so you should have it checked out as soon as possible.

Constant smoke from tail pipe.


If its smoking that bad you should be able to tell if its oil or antifreeze by the smell, stand behind the car as its running, if its white and you smell a sweet smell its antifreeze if its blue and smells like a oil refinery its oil.

My 1999 dodge ram begin to smoke really bad


If your talking about white smoke out the tail pipe, U have a blown head gasket. That's where antifreeze is getting into the oil. U need to get it to shop if this is the case.

Hope this helps

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.
