Sounds to me like you have a blown head gasket. White smoke is from water leaking in your exaust. May not be bad yet but it will get worse. Good luck , Might get a sec. opinion to be sure.

If exhaust white smoke out huge what part is defective in nissan sentra sr e?


if the weather is cold enough it will have white smoke coming out the exhaust it just indicates the moisture that is the by product of combustion and as the engine gets to operating temp it should diminish. if it smells sweet it indicates that the engine is burning coolant.

White smoke delica


The thick white smoke is either burnt oil or steam you can easily identify the smell of burnt oil not really sure why you thought it would be a good idea to put a 2 stroke mixed fuel in but more than likely that alone fouled your spark plugs. But if the problem preceded the fuel blunder then your either have a bad intake/head gasket, leaking valve seats, or bad main engine seal. Replace the spark plugs and check cylinder compression. Change your engine oil and check to see if it contains water/coolant also watch for coolant or oil consumption

I have a problem regards of mazda 3 2008 we added 4 bottles (4qt) of Formula Shell "Clean engine Formula" SAE 5W-20 And are car started to smoke from the pipe (white smoke)...and started to drag everytime...


It sounds like the engine is over full with oil, the reason it is smoking is because oil is being pushed past the seals into the exhaust. If it is over full you will need to lower it to the proper level and then drive the stuffing out of it to burn off all the oil in the exhaust. Have see that several times at the shop.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust


Is the car runnig little rough on cold start up in themorning for few seconds?? Because I have done quite a few headgaskets on QG18 Sentra aka 1.8 liter nissan sentra. here is the test. Fill up your overflow bottle to the full mark and check the coolant level in about 5 days.(drive it normally as if nothing is going on) If the level is down, your head gasket is gone. How about the check engine light , is it on?? post results.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.

Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.
