White smoke indacates water in exaust, Due to eater small hole in head gasket or head, This will get worse, good luck on it.

    You could try a bottle of liquid galss stop leak befor i tore it down. Read directions and follow. if small enough it will seal it up if it's the head. good luck .

Sounds like a hairline crack in the head or a small leak in head gasket

you must stay.

1: end of tail pipe smokes
2: or, with hood up the exhaust manifold smokes due to oil we dropped there. (common on much service)
and what color is it.?
from where.?
tail pipe can do 3 colors
white goes away fast ,called steam.
white stays way too long called burned oil smoke,
and black (unburned fuel) and smells like gas..

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2000 chevy z71 4x4 1500 pickup


White Smoke is coolant being burnt,usually from
a failed head gasket

The motor overheated & pushed out the freeze plugs

They told you different things for several reasons

They don't have your commitment to leave it & part with your money
They have little experience themselves
They or the shop does not want the job (my guess)
They can not make money on a job that will last a week or more
They won't tell you that you have a job coming costing you $3,000

The motor may have to come out for the freeze plug issue
The head gaskets may have to be done

That is all the guessing from here,sorry

White smoke coming out of the tail pipes


You don't say what the make model and year is, but yes it could be an intake gasket.
It could also be a leaking head gasket among other things.

Water not going in moter ,white smoke blowing from rhe tail pipe


Hi, If water is Not going your cooling system, check : - cooling liquid level ( it should in normal level) - air lock in your cooling system ( You can run your ca for minutes then top up liquid to disable this problem) - water pump ( it should working normal and has no leaks on its seal)
White smoke blowing, please check : - Valve seals for leaks - Oil seals for leaks - Compression on your combustion chamber
You will need a basic knowledge of car system to do above tasks.

Cloudy white smoke out of the tailpipe and smokes even more when I stop at a light or slow down


White smoke out of the tail pipe especially on '''warm''' weather usually means antifreeze/coolant leaking in to the cilynders. you may have a blown head gasket(cheapest to replace) and or a crack/warped cilynder head or crack block(not cheap) if the smoke its happening in '''Cold''' weather it could simply be condensation which is normal.

To find out exactly ,in a v6 engine ,simply take out the 2 middle spark plug (1 of each side) and crank the engine. If you see white smoke come out of either one thats where your leak is and you would go from there.

Note:

Just crank the engine '''Do NOT''' let the engine run for long without sparkplugs or catalyc converter damage may occur.in a 4 cilynder engine take out any center spark plug and see where the leak is

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.

Coolant leak


sounds like you may have had a head gasket failure, sorry for the bad news but white smoke from tail pipe = head gasket (big job)
