Sounds like you have water in the oil which means you could have a blown head gasket. Can you tell what got in the oil. Is it antifreeze or gas. If gas you probably have a injector sticking open.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

White smoke always means that oil is getting into the cylinder. This will make the car sputter. You have to find out why the oil is getting in there. It needs to go to a mechanic because it could be any number of reasons why the oil is getting in.

Blowing white smoke out of exhast


This problem is caused by a leaking cylinder head gasket which allows coolant into the engine cylinders where it is being vaporized, then the vaporized coolant comes out as white smoke.

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.
