Blue smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt by the engine.

blue smoke comes out the tail pipe when your engine is burning oil caused by a worn engine.

sounds like you have head gasket problem if the exhaust smoke is white in colour then its engine coolant if its blue smoke then its burning oil you will need to get the engine pressure tested at a garage.

If you nicked the oil pan it could cause it to smoke from engine area. Is the smoke coming from the exhaust or engine bay? If exhaust, then I highly doubt it was caused by the curb incident.

White smoke at start up is due to moisture in the exhaust or on a diesel it can be normal due to the engine being cold.White smoke at start up is due to moisture in the exhaust or on a diesel it can be normal due to the engine being cold.

grey exhaust smoke is caused by your engine burning oil during the combustion process. this could be caused by a piston ring that doesnt properly seal, or another leak in your engine.

White smoke in the exhaust is water leaking into a piston and turning into steam. You have a leak somewhere in your engine. Your engine may overheat because you are low on coolant. You have run it out through your exhaust pipe. Soon your engine will catch fire and burn up, but you will have saved money by not getting it fixed.

white smoke from diesel exhaust generally means you have engine coolant leaking internally in enginevery rarely , white smoke can indicate a problem with the turbo

No, the engine exhaust is what comes out of the tailpipe.

Moisture in the exhaust, or a cold running engine.

of course it emits "smoke" you mean exhaust? it has to go somewhere, if it's a propeller plane it has an exhaust just like car, if it's a turbine, it has an exhaust outlet, if it's a jet engine, the exhaust is self explanatory

White smoke will come out of a vehicle's exhaust system when the engine is cold. This is because of condensation build up in the engine and exhaust. The white smoke should go away after several minutes of idling. If you engine is always blowing white smoke, regardless of temperature, then it might be burning oil. Check the levels of your engine oil and your transmission fluid (if you have an automatic) and have the engine compression checked for blow-by.

broken piston rings maybe and oil gettin into the piston chamber.. too much oil maybe a blown head gasket... the smoke is steamy

corsa 1.5 diesel lumpy at start up with white smoke from exhaust returning to normal after a couple of minuets

have a mechanic check your turbo.most will tell u that a turbo blows black smoke but can aslso blow white smoke when turbo is malfunctioning

Blue smoke is from the engine burning oil. You could have too much oil or an internal engine failure.

You car has an exhaust system attached to the engine. The exhaust can get to upwards of 300o and then because of that, water that touches that hot metal turns into steam resulting in the "smoke" you are referring to. This also applies to the engine when wet.

Blue smoke is oil burning. Loud noises in the engine means internal engine problems. Time for a complete overhaul of this engine.
