They were using a lower quality gasket for a while and when the oil pressure builds while the car is running oil was forced out passed the gasket. Your car smokes a bit more in a turn becasue the oil that settles on the crossmember support is hitting the exhaust pipe. Easiest way to tell what is leaking is the smell. If it is oil...it'll have a rubber/onion odor where pwer steering fluid will have more of a strong burned rubber smell.
Best thing to do is to have a mechanic check and replace ( if needed) the oil pan gasket. It is possible like someone else mentioned that it could be a valve cover gasket but the oil leak would be obvious.
Power streering leak- Its been a while since I played with a Taurus. I think it has a rack-and Pinion type steering system like the older models. The older models had some issues after about 75,000 miles with the R&P seals, requiring replacement of the rack. Parts arent bad....like 150 dollars. Might cost a bit in labour to replace.

White Smoke Coming from Engine?


It sounds like you need a good mechanic to fix your oil leaks. It's probably the valve cover gasket leaking oil on the cylinder head and it's running down on the hot exhaust manifold.

When i start the engine i have like a white smoke behind me is just huge.i drive a toyota land cruiser 2006 manual gearbox.i don t know what is the problem?is happen in every morning and 4 max 10 sec all...


smoke indicates a weak engine, if it is only at start or beginning few minutes of driving then hopefully it is rings only which is weakened and needs replacement, as per your note it seems only at start and the vibration is it only at cold start and what about if after running a more then 5 miles even you stop the car and start in few second does it still vibrate or no, please let me know

Engine misfire


White smoke usually indicated it's burning antifreeze. Check your antifreeze level and oil condition before anything.

White smoke coming out of the exhaust when starting?


Hello;
Volumes of white smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. A certain amount of vapor will be present on start up, but if it is different than what has been the norm for this vehicle then a check of the cooling system is in order.

My truck blows white smoke


Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck
