The early duramax engines have a problem with cracked injectors, that would be the first thing to check. also keep an eye on your coolant level, could be a head gasket. check the oil for signs of coolant in the oil.

What causes white smoke to come from the tail pipe with strong fumes while in idle?


A heavy presence of white smoke from the tail pipe is usually caused by a bad headgasket. If this gasket is bad, the vehicle may run rough as well as overheat.

Possibly a blown head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinders to be burned. White smoke is usually coolant burning. Have the engine's compression tested to verify.

Cylinder 6 does not fire. white smoke comeing out of tail pipe


you have a head gasket leak. coolant is leaking heavily into the number 6 cylinder, not allowing it to fire, thereby causing the misfire. white smoke is indicative of burning coolant, confirming the head gasket issue.

Hello my name is Ben. You most likely have a leaking head gasket. The gasket leak is allowing coolant into the combustion chamber which is why you see the white smoke.
