The white smoke has nothing to do with the brake fluid loss. Look around the brake master cylinder, brake lines and joiners and brakes for signs of moisture. They should all be clean and dry any build up of dirt could be a hydraulic leak. The white smoke is more likely from warn valve guides.
Usually a sign of piston ring wear...also to costly to repair this condition in this motor...better off with a used replacement motor with fewer miles...ALSO, you can limit the exhaust smoke if it is still running OK for you...Visit your auto parts store and review...add oil additive...Many brands and not to costly...This is probably your least costly repair so you can still enjoy your
Celica...Hope this helps.
Check trans. fluid level while engine is hot and running, Check it twice to be sure that the level is full. The white smoke could be something all together different like a blown head gasket. check to see if water is mixing with the iol by looking at the oil fill cap, if you see bubbles and a whitish milky looking color under the cap.
White smoke is a sign that you are burning antifreeze. You more than likely have a leaking head gasket or else a cracked head. Either way not good. Check your radiator for loss of coolant and air bubbles.
a cracked head or blown head gasket,will cause your vehicle to have a miss in the cylander where the crack is or where the gasket is blown. you can also see coolant leaking if the gasket is blown. you can also see water in the oil,and white smoke come from the exhaust.
to tell for sure that the head is cracked,and not just a blown gasket is to remove the head. you will instantly see if the gasket is blown. if its not,then turn the head upside down and look at the small space between the valves,as this is where 99% of cracks occur.
The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.
Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.
Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).
Hi, sounds like you need to replace your valve seals or if yours is the turbo the sealing rings in the turbo are worn.
What happens is that oil over night or when the engine is stopped runs into the intake of the engine in small amounts then when the engine is started the oil is burnt hence white smoke.
Check each spark plug in each cyclinder to see is one of them or all of them charred with black burnt oil deposits.
In one plug has more than the rest you can be rest asured it is the valve seals.
If it is the turbo version it has to be the turbo sealing rings.
Best to replace the turbo in this case as it is only a mater of time before it goes. this as we always say is the warning light on it telling us that its days are numbered.
