blown head gasket much?
You may have a blown head gasket.
You have described the classic symptoms of a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head or both. In either case, there is a loss compression and "get up and go". Also, coolant leaks into the combustion chamber (also affects "get up and go" and the steam comes out of the muffler/tail pipe as "white" smoke.
Yes the white smoke is really steam from the cooling system a seal or gasket has failed.
White smoke is usually an indicator of moisture/water in the system where the "white smoke" is actually steam. There may be heavy condensation or water inside the muffler and the heat of the exhaust is turning it into steam. You can remove the muffler and drain it or you can just let all the moisture/water evaporate eventually.
your car is burning oil.
engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder , from a bad head gasket , warped or cracked head
white smoke is usually due to large amounts of oil in the muffler. if the mower was turned on its side for a period of time the oil will run into the muffler and when you start it it burns the oil out. after the large cloud starts to dissipate the smoke should start to change to a normal blue color and then disappear as it clears out
You may have serious engine damage. Have a mechanic look at your car.
the smoke that comes out of a exhaust pipe is supposed to be white
Just having a hole in the muffler won't cause smoke to form. Any smoke coming from an engine is caused by either environment changes (white smoke while engine is warming up), or an engine burning oil (blue smoke). Sometimes even a bad catalytic converter can cause smoke. The hole in the muffler simply gives the smoke a way out. Trying looking for external oil leaks or checking he oil level occasionally to see if it is burning oil. You may see water vapor is there is a hole in the muffler but it wouldn't last long once the muffler warms up and the moisture is burned off. She shouldn't see actual smoke unless there is a problem with the engine.
It is normal and unless you are loosing coolant, I wouldn't worry about it. GoodluckJoe
White smoke! I know of no special name given to it other than white smoke.
Your headgasket is bad, coolant is getting into the combustion chamber, hence the thick white smoke and fluid. had that happen to my dads thunderbird a few years ago
If you are referring to the smoke that issues from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel during a papal conclave, the white smoke is from the burning of the ballots after a vote. White smoke indicates that a new pope has been elected.
NO!! White smoke indicates the burning of oil. The law says, "ANY smoke coming from the engine during any part of the test is grounds for failure." I've been an Emissions guy in Denver for 23 years. White smoke is oil. Black is gas (too rich). Black smoke can get pricey. White smoke is always pricey!!
Bad piston rings, oil level is too high, check the oil level and adjust
white smoke comes out when you use wrong gAS, Like if itsays only UNLEADED and you put diesel,,then you will see white clouds.
There are three types of smoke that will exhust from your gasoline engine: White smoke, actually is steam from condensation of water within the muffler and exhust system. Number two is Black smoke, this is from unburned fuel. The engine is running far richer that it needs to be. Number three is blue smoke. This is usually associated with oil comsumption.
White smoke coming from your tail pipe often indicates an issue with your coolant. The smoke comes from burning coolant. The engine sputters and white smoke is likely an issue with the head gasket.
If you see a lot of white smoke coming out of the muffler , that is the sign.
White smoke is caused by water being burnt check for a head gasket leakage.
White smoke indicates coolant entering the combustion chamber. STOP driving this car immediately and have this repaired or you will destroy the engine.Blue smoke indicates the engine is burning oil.Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel/air mixture. Have this repaired or you will destroy the catalytic converter and the O2 sensor.
Usually means trouble. White smoke is caused by coolant / antifreeze getting into the combustion chamber. Take it to your local professional.Most probably, your head gasket had blown, or the block is cracked. Which means that collant is getting into the cylinders, causing the exhaust to be white.
White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. This can be caused by a blown head gasket or a cracked head. STOP driving this vehicle and have it repaired ASAP. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue the run this engine, even for a short time.
