I would have to guess at the intake manifold gasket or head gasket. SOunds like the oil passes through one of these and into a cylinder, Especially if it is burning it. Be careful it doesn't go up in flames, oil will burn quite well.

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.

The burning smell from the exhaust pipe may be caused from oil or transmission fluid leaking into the exhaust pipe. For example, if your turbo is failing on the car, then that can cause leakage from the manifold into the exhaust pipe. There may be other reasons, too, which other people will be better articulating.

Snow, watr, or ice getting into your exaust pipe then it melts...

Many people make the mistake of thinking when they see moisture or liquid drip from their exhaust pipe that it is gasoline or petrol. It is only condensation (water) from inside the exhaust. There is nothing wrong with the car.

potato with in whistle in it, jammed into the exhaust pipe?

A hole in the muffler would cause a knocking sound in your muffler. A loose exhaust pipe can also cause a knocking noise.

Unburned fuel in the exhaust system causes the backfire from the exhaust pipe.

The cause of an exhaust indicator light in a Volkswagen Beetle is probably an oxygen sensor. There also a possibility that an exhaust pipe is plugged or there is a hole due to rust.

Yes, a certain amount of water (not coolant) will drip out the tail pipe from the process of condensation.

A buildup of raw fuel in the exhaust system is then ignited and damages the exhaust muffler or blows a pipe apart.

asuming the vehicle has a 4 cylinder, the exhaust manifold would be facing the radiator. 6 cyl. would also have one facing the firewall. You can figure it out simply by tracing your exhaust system from back to front. tail pipe - muffler - exhaust pipe - catalytic converter - exhaust pipe - exhaust manifold - engine.

One way a person can fix a sink drip is to place a bucket under the "S" pipe underneath, then loosen the pipe, take the pipe off, place sealing tape around the threads of the pipe and reattach. Another way a person could fix a sink drip would be to call a plumber and have a professional complete the repairs.

If the exhaust pipe, muffler, or tail pipe have come loose, you will certainly hear the rattling, but that would not be the cause of the shaking. It is something else causing the shaking, ranging from bad tires to bad engine performance.

The only water that should be leaking from an automobile would be from the condensation drain for the Air Conditioning or from condensation out the exhaust pipe.

If the exhaust system was very leaky, the exhaust gasses would just leak out. If the system was well sealed, it might blow up the muffler or other component, or blow out a gasket. It might also just blow out whatever you stuck in the exhaust pipe.

Clogged catalytic converter or y-pipe. I had the same problem. Also, if you smell rotten eggs or have lack of power under load as symptoms as well, I can almost guarentee it.
