SOURCE: smoking

Are you loosing coolant? If you are, you may have a leaking head gasket. Coolant will leak into the cylinder and is turned to steam as the engine is running and comes out the exhaust as steam.

SOURCE: white smoke

Hi,

Sounds typical of head gasket failure.

With this you get oil into cylinders / water into cylinders, burning oil, loosing water - but no leaks. "boiling" of radiator and overflows.

Check your coolant and oil levels - they will be low.

Get a few quotes for a head gasket replacement - and timing belt change, as it has to come off when you do this anyway & no sense putting an old one on - they often snap if retensioned.

If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! thanks.

SOURCE: coolant leak

More than likely it is coming from the intake manifold. You can use a pressure tester that hooks to the radiator and use a flashlight and mirror to get a better look at where it is coming from.

SOURCE: everytime i start my truck a puff of white smoke

Hi Friend:
Check to See if your air-temperature sensor that regulates the amount of vacuum signal that is applied to the servo motor:

The worst Problem is Blown Head Gasket will cause a Loss of Coolant and will cause the White Smoke out of Your Exhaust.

Check your Raditor for signs of Oil in it.

And Double Check your Oil to see if there are Signs of Water In your Oil.

Sounds like you Have a Bad Head Gasket or a Cracked Block That is letting Water to get into your Oil.

It sounds like it Not a Large Area of Head Gasket Failure as of Now.

But it Will Get Worst. Replace your Head Gaskets. And Check your Heads for Warpage and Cracks.

Thank You For Using FIXYA From d_hubbs

Will only stay running on revs over 2000rpm if I take foot of peddle it cuts out also white smoke from exhaust


What is year--make--model?
Are you losing coolant? The white smoke may be coolant in the combustion cylinder, possibly caused by a head gasket problem. If head gasket problem, fix that first.

With idle issues, clean/check anything that has to do with idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes?

I think my car blew its head gasket,but theirs no water in oil,if idling temperature stay normal,fans do come on when idling for long.I`ve changed spark plugs,plug wires,thermostat and heat sensor unit.As...


white smoke from the exhaust and overheating would almost certainly mean a blown head gasket.
the head gasket has gone between a cylinder and a cooling channel so exhaust gasses can get in to the cooling system resulting in the boiling and water from the cooling system is getting into the cylinder resulting in the white smoke (actually steam) from the exhaust.
the exhaust manifold is a separate issue that can be replaced when the head gasket is repaired.

White smoke is not good. But it may not be what white smoke typically is, which is coolant leaking into combustion chamber... but rather a backfire dislodging exhaust particles.

Get the error codes read and you will be able to know where to go next.

White smoke 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. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

White smoke comes out tail pipe


Its perfectly normal.Hot exhaust gases mixing with cold air and by products of the combustion process create the watery substance that you see spit out .Dual fuel (LPG,Hydrogen etc) vehicles do this a lot more noticably.By products of the combustion process are various but water vapour is one of them.Alot of heat is generated by the exhaust so watching a car driving in very cold conditions you can see this effect more clearly
