Large amounts of white smoke, often sweet smelling, indicates coolant in combustion chamber. Usually warped or cracked head.

Why is white smoke issuing from exhaust?


White smoke is coolant burning. Check radiator for oil and check oil cap for foam if you have one or both not good.

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust pipe


White smoke is usually a sign for a bad head gasket. How much white smoke is coming out? Also, are you losing coolant and can't find a drip under the engine?

Had problem with white smoke coming from tailpipe.addad diptaine to the tank and took van for a good spin.black smoke started coming from tailpipe. thought problem was solved,few days later coloured...


Don't know what car or engine you're writing about, but I'd recommend replacing the entire engine with a good used engine. White smoke usually comes from coolant in the engine (bad head gasket or cracked block/head). Fuel additives will do nothing to correct this. Low/no compression may be a piston ring, may be a holed piston, may be broken valves. You're going to pay someone to tear down the engine and they're going to find a lot more wrong than a bad piston ring. Just get another engine.

2005 Kia Sedona blows smoke but is not over heating


If white smoke appear when you take off from traffic lights or accelerating after coasting downhill then this indicates that either the engine has worm piston rings or valve guides.
You need a mechanic to do a cylinder compression test to determine if the engine rings are worn.
If black smoke appears from the tailpipe then the engine is running too rich and the engine needs a tune up.

White smoke out tailpipe car has 17300.00 miles


White smoke is coolant being burnt in the cylinder,
most likely from a failed head gasket

I would think a 1989 is too old to fix
Cost more than the car is worth

Any oil useage between oil changes every
say 3000 to 4500 miles is too much,engine is
worn

1997 eclipse white smoke out tailpipe


have compression check done on all cylenders. sounds that it could be seeping and burning this new anttifreez. can burn out pistons if so. if you have a turbo have your seals checked as they could be hardend and cracked causeing seepage. also note if your oil or coolant levels have been coming up small amounts short, this could tell about the same as the comp tests

Smoke and water from tailpipe


That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps
