Avoid running the car unless necessary! you may have cracked or warped head(s) blown head gasket or any number of major component failure. you need to first and foremost look at the oil and see if it looks milky or murky. this means water is in your oil. then check your water for oil if both of these look ok. try and find where the smoke is coming from. some one may have spilled oil on your exhaust header in the engine bay. if thats the case it will go away but engine degrease will take care of it. have you lost any power or noticed overheating?

I have a 2002 firebird v6 3.8 liter and my oil psi is @ 80 psi when driving but when I come to red light it goes down to 60 psi is that normal also when I take out my oil dipstick I get some white smoke...


when you drive the pressure should increase as the rpm goes up not strange at all for it to drop like that at a light . the pressure can change sometimes using different filters and oils too . normal oil to synthetic or also using a heavier grade so keep that in mind .

The dipstick should not be checked when running and that could be blowby from engine wear . but if checking when it is off and you get some fumes out after it has been running for some time then you have have some carbon buildup in the valve cover / intake . These fumes may not vent properly due to that buildup .

White Smoke when i put gas in car


The most common cause of blue (or worse still) being expelled through the exhaust system is extreme wear in the engine, or, if you're extremely fortunate a significant OVERFILL of the engine oil level. One other possible, though unlikely cause, is a fault in the engine's scavenging system.
Has this problem occurred suddenly without warning? Had the car been serviced immediately before this event, or the engine oil topped up?

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.
