broke your cam or crack haed gasket or broke o rings that will cost some money unless you can do that

Not necessarily what was described above. Sounds like the fuel to air mixture is not correct to me. If your car is running with too much fuel and not enough air to go with it it will cause the symptoms you described.

You are running too rich. the mixture of fuel and air has too much fuel in it,

It's going to be on the exhaust system somewhere. My 97 has it right in front of the motor next to the radiator coming out of the exhaust manifold. Looks like a spark plug looking thing with a single wire coming out of it.

Serious trouble. It usually means a broken oil (piston) ring. Another possibility is that your exhaust valve seals are bad/gone or valve guide is worn in excess. Another possibility is it is condensation coming out of exhaust mixed with black residue from exhaust and only looks like oil.

User Avatar

if you have blue smoke coming into the exhaust that means your piston rings are bad and are letting oil into your combustion chamber and then causing the oil to be burned with your air fuel mixture and that's why your exhaust is blue from having that burnt oil dumped out of the exhaust valve and out the exhaust

there is no water mixed with the oil but have antifreeze coming out of the exhaust

EGT stand for exhaust gas temperature. It measure the temperature of the exhaust gasses coming out of the mufflers. It is a tool used to monitor the engines health as well as setting the proper air-fuel ratio mixture.

It could be condensation from hot exhaust gases on the cool exhaust pipe.

white smoke is coming from my exhaust why?

User Avatar

The fumes are most likely coming from an exhaust leak. The leak could be at the converter, or somewhere else in the exhaust system.

User Avatar

the smoke that comes out of a exhaust pipe is supposed to be white

a flooded carburetor will spill fuel into the combustion chamber causing an improper fuel to air mixture. too much fuel in the combustion chamber will not completely burn. the unburned fuel will be pushed out of the exhaust.

there are 2 sensors 1 is in the exhaust manifold at the very front with 1 wire coming out of it and one behind the catalytic converter with 4 wires

Change your spark plugs!!

Cat conv OR Head Gasket failure. Does it smell foul ? Most likely Head Gasket Leak pending failure

A broken piston ring will allow fuel to enter the exhaust system. The fuel will drain out of the exhaust.

User Avatar

If fumes are coming into a car it is most likely not going to be coming from a head gasket. The more likely places will be a blown exhaust gasket, exhaust doughnut, or some other type of exhaust leak.

Black smoke is a sign of an overly rich fuel/air mixture, unlike blue smoke which is a sign of oil burning. Seek professional help.

User Avatar

Where is the leak coming from. Most likely you will need to replace the exhaust manifold gasket which will require removing the exhaust manifold.

Car maintenance is very important for a smooth ride. When there is white smoke coming out of the exhaust, it is usually an indication of water in the engine.

User Avatar

Water condensation coming from the exhaust is normal when the vehicle has been sitting in a wet area, but should stop once it is warmed up. Water from the exhaust after it is warmed up and white smoke from the exhaust is an indication of a blown head gasket.

Could be a diesel? If not then replace your oxygen sensor on your exhaust. A bad oxygen sensor causes the exhaust smoke to be dark in color.
