Sounds more like a blown head gasket. Check the compression on the engine to be sure. Anything below 150 is bad, although the bike may run. Could also be a cracked head or block.

Thick white smoke on start-up. After engine warms up very little smoke or no smoke at all noticable. could it be the PCV valve?


white smoke indicates a coolant burning problem. most likely a head gasket and when it gets warmed up the expansion of the mating components seals off most of the leak. have a head gasket check done. burning of oil is a bluish colour not white.

2004 pontaic grand prix white smoke coming fro m exhast


Quit driving it. You have blown a intake manifold gasket or a head gasket. 3.4 engines are known for blowing intake gaskets. Check your oil, make sure it is not exessive or milky in color. White smoke is caused from water/coolant entering the cylinder.

Produced smoke while driving up the hill?


It depends on what color the smoke is. Ascending up a hill puts a heavy load on the engine, which may exhibit blow by if your piston rings are worn which is not noticed at other times. If the smoke is blue it is oil, if it is white it is coolant, black means rich condition. In either white/blue condition you want to have a mechanic look at it to perform a compression check on all cylinders.

Blueish white smoke comeing from exhaust


Hello There

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.

You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

2005 f350 blows white smoke when on the throttle hard.


Could possibley be a coolant leak, but no guranteed, if too much fuel is being injected for the amount of air entering, diesel fuel can cause a white smoke. I would check the air filter first. Is the boost gauge working, and if so how many PSI of boost are entering the engine?

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....
