White smoke can mean boiler is running too lean, general rule of thumb is, too much air and not enough fuel gives smoke, too much fuel and not enough air gives black smoke. Possibly blocked filter or bad pump.

White smoke means steam and that would be caused by a leak in the heat exchanger coil of water in the fuel.

white smoke= lean fuel, dark smoke= rich fuel. white smoke also could mean mean a blown head gasket allowing water to mix with the oil (very bad). Run it for a bit then take out and look at the oil filler pug. if the oil is frothy or bubbly and has the color of hot chocolate there is water in it. Replace head gasket and flush all systems immediately! Pary for the best

I have a Laars Max Boiler 75, 90K with white smoke out chimney


Hello
Yes,more then likely its moisture from the high effenicey system of the boiler.

I have a laars boiler at work and some mornings when its cold out it looks like there is a fire, which is really only steam.

As long as your not shutting down on low water failure or loosing pressure and holding temp.This is normal.

Hope this helps.

My 93 maxima got no power an smoke started to come out the tail end.


The best test is a compression test.
Blue smoke means it's burning oil, due to worn out piston rings.
White smoke means it's mixing antifreeze and oil due to a bad head gasket or cracked head or block.

Hi Maria,

Does the white smoke occur at start up then go away?
Was it cooler out the night before the white smoke started?

Likely it's condensation burning off.

To be on the safe side have a compression test run on all cylinders. It's a quick, easy and cheap way to find out if the head gasket is ok.

Also, I strongly advise you to get some second or third opinions for the remaining symptoms. Something smells fishy. I'm sure you know what I mean.

If you comment back or repost, I will do my best to help you out.

Best regards
Mike

White smoke coming out of the oil fill cap is not good, it means there's water in there (white smoke = water, blue smoke = oil, black smoke = lots of junk in gas or ruined engine). I suspect bad head gasket or cracked block.
