Question about 2000 Nissan Sentra
I have put my car in the shop for a simple TuneUp as part of my maintenance. When I got it back after traveling for a few miles. White smoke is already coming out of the exhaust.
Can somebody help me? what should be check first...?
Yoy need a new head gasket. I have done quite a few on these cars. Does it run rough for few seconds, when you start it in a.m.? If so, head gasket is gone.

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.
Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.

Is the car runnig little rough on cold start up in themorning for few seconds?? Because I have done quite a few headgaskets on QG18 Sentra aka 1.8 liter nissan sentra. here is the test. Fill up your overflow bottle to the full mark and check the coolant level in about 5 days.(drive it normally as if nothing is going on) If the level is down, your head gasket is gone. How about the check engine light , is it on?? post results.
