Do you have a blown head gasket if there white smoke coming from your tailpipe and elevated temp and the engine sputters in low gears?
thats quite psoosible , if the sputtering is at low speeds when the engin e is cold . A sure sign that you have a blown head gasket is when you loose coolant with no external signs of collant loss , you have coolant in the engine oil or vice versa . Any of those conditions warrant further investigation to determine the cause . usually a compression test and coolant leak test will show when you have a blown head gasket . elevated engine temp is also another common sign of a blown head gasket , get it checked out and repaired asap as you can quickly destroy an engine with a bad head gasket depending on how bad it is and how much coolant/lubricant are beign lost or mixed together.
Why is gas in the oil and tailpipe of a 1994 Thunderbird with excessive blue smoke coming from the tailpipe?
I'm not a mechanic / technician but if white smoke is coming out of your tailpipe with the engine warmed up it sounds like you are getting engine coolant into one or more of your engine cylinders . ( bad head gasket / warped cylinder head ) Is the coolant / antifreeze mix also going into your engine oil )
Water (condensation) is a normal condition with a cold engine as stated below, but not oil?? Perhaps a bad head gasket/cracked head/ or block Water coming out of the tailpipe is not uncommon. You will probably see on a lot of cars on humid days with water coming out of the tailpipe usually it goes away once your engine and exhausts have warmed up. Check out the links below for better explanation. It also depends…
Water coming out the tailpipe means there is water in the exhaust. This is not uncommon when the engine is cold and the exhaust is condensing. That situation should stop when the engine warms up. If the exhaust continues to have water in it after the engine is warmed up it could possibly indicate a leaky head gasket or cracked cylinder head.
Steam from the tailpipe, and water in the oil means you have a faulty head gasket. Not a good thing. The steam is the antifreeze/water coolant leaking into the heads (bad gasket) getting heated by the engine and coming out as steam. The water in the oil is the same deal, but it;s collecting in the oil so it isn't coming out of the tailpipe. You need a new head gasket. I promise.
You will see steam come from the tailpipe in the winter which is caused by the hot exhaust coming from the engine making contact with the cold metal in the exhaust system. This is normal and no cause for alarm. However if the white smoke does not dissipate almost instantly and seems to continue you may have a blown head gasket. If the exhaust smells sweet you almost certainly have a problem and the gasket…
What causes a 94 ford escort to gurgle and have black smoke coming from tailpipe when accellerating?
Does the car vibrating at stop lights have anything to do with the white smoke coming out of tailpipe?
White smoke coming from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. This will cause the engine to miss and vibrate. More than likely your have a blown head gasket. You must STOP driving this car until this is repaired. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine.
