White smoke blowing out exhaust is classic sign that coolant is getting into the cylinders, meaning
a blown head gasket. You can still use your car for awhile, but your need to schedule it ASAP
for a new head gasket.
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: moderate - you'll need at least a Haynes manual ($20 at Pep Boys) for
your Honda car or truck, and while its a big project, your vehicle really needs it.
Until you replace the head gasket, your vehicle will need constant coolant (50/50 mixture)
added, and will perform like a dog - meaning it'll waste alot of fuel getting around - why? coolant
doesn't burn and cools down (and reduces the power of) the explosion in each of the
cylinders that're being polluted with coolant. The more cylinders affected, the worse your
vehicle will perform.

Why bmw x5 battery drain fan not working exhaust blowing out white smoke... what may be happening.


White smoke out of the exhaust indicates moisture (water) in the exhaust. If the car is not driven very far each day, some moisture will collect in the muffler and cause white smoke for a short while after starting. If the smoke is continual, however, you need to watch you coolant level as you may have a blown head gasket.

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 1987 toyota mr2 is blowing white smoke, i just had the headgasket replaced, the car is losing oil and is not getting hot or loosing coolant. I was told it might be the pcv valve but i cant find it on...


white exhaust smoke usually means coolant in the combustion chamber. It can mean unburnt gas, or too rich mixture. PCV does not cause this, but buy a new one as they are cheap and then find the thing stuck into the valve cover which looks just like it, and replace it. it sits in a grommet and a large vacuum line attaches to the top. On a car that old you should replace the grommet and the hose.

white smoke is normaly an indication of water entering the combustion chamber of your engine due to a broken head gasket. I am surprised that it stoped but I think that the probelm will come back.

Car is blowing white smoke from exhaust when i step on gas


The most likely cause is a blown head gasket,but it could also be a warped head,was the motor overheated prior to the problem starting? The white smoke is steam,check the underside of the oil fill cap and dipstick for a grayish brown residue,check the coolant for a low level and oil conatamination,either of these conditions verify that a head isn't fully sealed.Unless your moderately skilled mechanically this a job to be done by a shop.A good shop will perform a leakdown test to verify this.
