Welcome to FIXYA

There in only 1 thing i can think of where the white smoke is from it could be anitfreeze if so it would mean a cracked head or a bad head gasket if it gets worse then you have a big problem but if you check the water level and it looks fine then you should be ok for a while

if it was black smoke or a real dark gray then it would be oil


i hope this helps you out have a good day

My toyota d4d hilux double cab is emitting black smoke


Black smoke is usually excess fuel, that can be caused by things such as leaky fuel injectors, bad coolant temp sensor, weak spark (bad coil?). You don't say what year or engine. If a carburetor, it may need overhaul. If excess fuel gets really bad, it can wash the oil off the piston rings and cause rings to wear, plus dilute engine oil causing bearing failure.

1990 Corolla started shaking after I accelerated rapidly (gunned the engine)


White smoke coming out of exhaust is water vapor. Blue is oil burning and black is carbon from unburned fuel.
U have water or coolant leaking into your combustion cylinders - not a good thing. Probably blown head gasket.

Check your oil - if it like a brown mud then the coolant has also gotten into the lubrication system.

2005 pt cruiser grey smoke


Gray smoke can be difficult to diagnose.
Black is usually too much fuel, and white is usually a coolant leak.
You should be adding coolant to the radiator if it is a coolant leak.

Audi a6 quattro 2001 coolant disappears, engine overheats and white smoke comes out


Unfortunate you're losing coolant into the cylinders, where it's being burned off and exiting out the exhaust. When you initially added that cold coolant into the hot radiator, and hot engine (sit down) you likely cracked the engine block. Best case you just need to replace the head gasket.

Whithish-blue smoke from exhaust


If it happened suddenly after an oil change I would certainly check oil level, for maybe over-full, leak at filter or drain plug, but make sure you have oil in there too, to avoid ruining engine, and get in contact with whoever did the oil change & tell them a.s.a.p.
