Did you get a bad repair job if you had the head gasket repaired last week and now white smoke comes out of the car?

No there's nothing you can put it to stop it what you need to do is repair it. The white smoke from your exhaust is caused by a blown head gasket. You must replace the head gasket. Stop driving this car until this is repaired or you will destroy the engine.

White smoke exhaust usually means either a head gasket leak or an intake gasket leak. Both are cheaper to repair sooner than later.

I suspect that you have a blown head gasket letting coolant into one of the cylinders to cause the white smoke and the lowered coolant level results in over heating of the engine. overheating with white smoke indicates coolant in the combustion chamber 99% of the time this is caused by a leaking head gasket. dont keep driving till you get it repaired or you can crack the block, needing a new engime or warp the head needing new head. head gasket is least expensive to repair
