Having a CRACKED head will make WHITE smoke IF U didn't have the head MAGNA-FLUXED. White smoke is steam. if it doesnt quit after awhile Id say that there is a leak in the head gasket between one of the coolent passages and a cylinder. this will let water into the cylinder which is turned into steam during combustion then exausted out the tail pipe. just to clear up something: Magnafluxing will not prevent cracks, it is a process used to detect them. This should be done by a machine shop. the new gasket is obviously faulty, or the head is cracked. I would guess that its the gasket. The head may not have been torqued properly. Follow a Chiltons or similar repair manual very closely when installing a head. If this is immediately after getting it fixed, you have to give it some time to work all that coolant out of the exhaust system. If it still is blowing steam after a few miles, then probably you have another blown headgasket or a cracked head that should have been addressed on the first head gasket replacement. Some shops have been known to not verify that the head isn't warped or cracked, and if it is, the new head gasket will blow immediately. If you had it at a shop the first time, take it back to them and have them fix it right this time - remember, though, not all mechanics are created equal and if they don't make things right you should take this to a better shop. A good shop will be embarassed by such a rookie mistake and take care of you. It is also possible that the head is warped (repair by machining) or that the intake gasket is or was also leaking or warped. Warpage typically only occurs if serious overheating occurred or sometimes if the wrong torque sequence was used during installation.
No, it will not cause smoke from the exhaust pipe. However the leaking oil can drip on the exhaust manifold where it will be burnt and smoke.

Most connections / joints between parts have a gasket to prevent leaks. So a failed gasket is a typical cause of leaks, including where the exhaust pipes connects to the exhaust manifold.
Regulate the carburetor and replace its gasket.
almost certainly yes,white smoke from exhaust indicates water mixing with oil,check head gasket or cracked head.
For steam to come out the exhaust you probably have a bad head gasket or a cracked head. If the turbo had an oil seal fail it would cause blue smoke to come out the exhaust.
Head gasket or cracked head. Mo
A faulty head gasket will cause power loss, coolant to mix with oil, and is a costly repair. Excessive heat is the primary cause for their failure.
NO! These type products are only an emergency repair. The only permanent repair is to remove and replace the blown gasket. Besides these type products can cause clogging of the cooling system. Do not use them.
There is a strong possibility that you have either a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.
No, white exhaust smoke is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. You my have a blown head gasket.
bad head gasket , warped or cracked head
Blue smoke can be caused by a blown head gasket. . Blue is oil being burned in the engine.
White smoke out of exhaust is usually indicitive of water or coolant in the combustion chanber/ chambers of the exhaust. Usually caused by a blown head gasket. A costly repair. clean pipes to and from intercooler and clean intercooler .and clean crankcase breather.
In most cases it will cost in excess of Eight-Hundred dollars. It is an important repair to make, because if you keep driving with a bad head-gasket, you can cause SERIOUS damage.
== NO, defective exhaust manifold gasket will not cause this.White exhaust smoke is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. You more than likely as not, have a blown head gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you find out. Look for coolant in the oil, air bubbles escaping from the radiator, and a sweet smell at the exhaust. All indications of serious problems. A compression test will verify if you indeed have a blown head gasket. ==
Maybe a head gasket?
Yes, a prolonged exhaust leak will eventually cause problems with your cylinder head. The leaking exhaust is very hot and you can cause small cracks in the head if you don't repair the problem promptly. If you can hear the exhaust leaking, it may already be too late! Get it checked out soon!
It must. I am having my '94 Camaro's timing gasket changed for just that reason.
It could be as simple as bad plugs... Or as hard and costly like a head gasket. Put your hand over the exhaust. And check if it smells like antifreeze. If so it could be a bad head gasket. check your oil and see if it is mixing. If so angain it could be a head gasket.
