It could be your catalytic converter or rings are worn out letting oil saturate your plugs

It sounds like your heads, valve seals.
Top half of the engine.
Its ready to go. My suggestion, invest a 2500-3000, 1k for an imported low mileage engine, and 1500 to install it.

Thats if you really like the car.

SOURCE: white smoke

Usually white smoke all the time indicates a leaking head gasket (leaking coolant in the cylinders), which should be fixed right away because piston rod bearings and crankshaft bearings really don't like antifreeze... Can cause serious engine damage.

In rare cases, white smoke only at cold startup (stops right after startup) is an indication of too much fuel in the combustion chamber

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.

You must have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a local shop confirm this for you as it is a very expensive repair.

White smoke coming out of the tail pipe after taking off.


White smoke continuously blowing out from the tail pipe ? If it is only at the cold position it is normal, if it is always coming out it means oil consumed & compression is week. spark plug frequently needed ? If plug frequently shorted u need to overhaul or need to add oil treatment for increase viscosity.

White smoke?


It's just condensation. Water will also drip from the pipe.

The colder it is, the worse the 'smoke' will be. I was in Vernal, Utah earlier this week, drove through -18*F weather, my truck never quit blowing white smoke.

And NO IT IS NOT YOUR HEADGASKET
