Are you loosing coolant? If you are, you may have a leaking head gasket. Coolant will leak into the cylinder and is turned to steam as the engine is running and comes out the exhaust as steam.

Where is the fuel regulator located? And how can I tell if it's bad


Some fuel regulators are located in the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly. If the fuel pressure regulator has gone bad, it can leak fuel in the engine, contaminating the engine oil.

Symptoms of a bad regulator is:
Poor gas mileage.
Smell of gas in the engine compartment.
Fuel is leaking.
Black smoke coming out of the exhaust (tail pipe).
Failed emissions test.
Check engine light is on.

Dumping gas into oil and blowing white smoke changed the fuel pressure regulator no difference


White smoke is coolant getting into the cylinders , blown head gasket cracked head or crack in the block etc... . If the engine were running rich ,then black smoke would be coming out the tail pipe -exhaust !

If car has hole in over drive will it cause smoke come from tailpipe?


Besides being a poorly worded question...
We can try...
White smoke from the tail pipe could be a blown head gasket as coolant enters your cylinders and is exhausted.

"hole in overdrive" needs clarified...

Spitting sputtering


These things are notorious for having crank sensor failures. Not too expensive and not too dificult to replace. I would try that first.

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?

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Gas pouring from tailpipe


Make sure you use OEM Injectors. The white smoke might come at a 3.5 from a bad gasket bewteen the intake manifold and the throttle boy or if you have the 3.8 from bad gaskets between the intake manifold and the engine.

Alot ofwhite smoke coming from tail pipe


Have you overheated or are loosing coolant? If not check to see if your transmission has a vacuum hose going to it. (if coolant you can smell it in the exhaust)
I don't think you have the trans hook up but can't remember.
