Usually a little smoke in the morning is OK. Something you need to watch is the antifreeze/coolant in the radiator and or resevoir. if it constantly is getting low, you may have a blown head gasket.
This would account for the longer starts.

WHITE SMOKE IS USALLY A SIGN OF THE HEAD GASKET IS BEGINNING TO LEAK WHAT IT DOES IT DEPOSIT'S ANTI-FREEZE ON THE TOP OF YOU PISTONS WHICH IN TURN FOULS YOUR SPARK PLUGS.IT PROBALLY RUNS ROUGH WHEN IT ACTUALLY STARTS CHECK YOUR ENGINE OIL FILLER CAP FOR WHITE MILKY LOOKING STUFF OR YOUR DIP STICK.

White smoke came from the exhaust pipe and the car killed in motion. I check all fluid levels were fine, once i started the care again and proceeded the accleration was a bit rough. After a few minute


white smoke mostly is caused by over fueling so what i suggest you do is first of all check if there is no leak on the injectors and if there is none which means your valve sterm seals are damaged.When the head gasket is blown out you may have problems like :-loosing power when driving,over heating,idling problems and oil mixing with water, its not your head gasket.

Excessive exhaust smoke on the first start of the day


Sounds like the valve guides are leaking oil into the cylinders, or there is a coolant leak somewhere. Usually white smoke is coolant but could be oil.
Are you adding either fluid often ?

Hi Erin, I think you should take the vehicle to have a diagnostic scan carried out very urgently. Never ignore puffs of smoke or your family may be missing you! Regards John

White smoke from the exhaust when I start the car


Hi!

What type of smoke can you see---

white smoke-
If you see a wispy, lingering white smoke that has a bittersweet smell, this is an indication that your car's engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers. This may be due to a leaky head gasket, or in a worst case scenario, a cracked cylinder head.

Make sure to take your car to the shop right away to get it fixed.
Thick white smoke---
If your vehicle is belching white smoke upon start-up, it is a sign that transmission fluid is entering the combustion chambers, possibly though a vacuum tube that connects the engine to the transmission.
This type of smoke can be confused with the normal puff of steam during start-up. If you are not sure, have your car inspected at the shop.

Blue/White Smoke--
A blue/white smoke is an indication that oil is being sucked into the combustion chambers through the valve guides. A quick fix for this problem is by replacing the valve seals. Valve seals are small, umbrella shaped pieces of rubber.

Do rate the solution.

Thanks
Rylee.

Big puff of white smoke at start up after sitting for several hours.


white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.
nest time try and smell the white smoke see if it smells sweet?
if it does its antifreeze.
and also black smoke is fuel (like a leaky injector )
hope this helps

More than likely leaking fuel injector.. Causing a slight build-up of fuel on top of the piston overnight. when started it burns this off first.
