Since plain water is not used anywhere on a vehicle, it must be getting in through the shifter boot.
Underneath the vehicle connected to the exhaust pipe coming from the engine. If you look under the vehicle you will see it.
Water condensation coming from the exhaust is normal when the vehicle has been sitting in a wet area, but should stop once it is warmed up. Water from the exhaust after it is warmed up and white smoke from the exhaust is an indication of a blown head gasket.
A Catalytic Converter is used to clean the fumes of the exhaust emmisions coming out of a motorised vehicle.
if there is white smoke ur vehicle is either burning oil or it is moisture in the gas chamber
Crawl under the vehicle and look up. You will see the converter connected to the exhaust pipe coming from the engine.
Sounds like engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder
your exhaust may be jammed
If you are talking about an intercooler (never heard of an after cooler) the hot exhaust coming out of the cylinders is cycles through the intercooling to cool the exhaust before its cycled through the turbo.
You can smell exhaust because your exhaust pipes and exhaust system has worn out. As a result, the exhaust and carbon monoxide it contains leaks inside the van. Soon, it will not be a problem because the carbon monoxide will have killed all of you.
there is no water mixed with the oil but have antifreeze coming out of the exhaust
You need a head or intake gasket. Coolant is getting into engine. Head more likely.
White smoke out of the exhaust means that there is coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Usually due to a bad head gasket.
Leak in exhaust system perhaps exhaust manifold being sucked in through air intake (grid at lower end of windshield)
lifters are beginning to go. timing chain (if vehicle is equiped) may be coming loose. and or exhaust pieces are loose.
Crawl under the vehicle and find the exhaust pipe coming from the engine. It will connect to the catalytic converter and from there to the muffler.
Yes, in a shop maintenance manual specific for that vehicle. Further, An O2 sensor(s) is part of the exhaust system and measures the remaining oxygen existing the engine exhaust as it exists the engine. Using this and a standard of around 20.9 % per volume of air of oxygen going into the intake, it allows the computer to adjust air/fuel mixture or how much gas gets squirted through the injectors. Air volume is measured through a MAP or MAF sensor via flow through the fixed volume of the throttle body which can be varied via the butterfly valve inside it which is actuated by the throttle or "gas pedal." on modern cars there can be two O2 sensors. Start looking at the exhaust manifold and work your way down the exhaust to the back underneath the vehicle. It will be there are wires coming from the exhaust or psrt of the exhaust.
http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info sounds like u need a complete new exhaust on your vehicle
You may have very worn piston rings, letting oil through. Take it for a'compression test'/
White smoke from the exhaust pipe is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Commonly caused by a blown head gasket. STOP driving this vehicle until you have this repaired or you will destroy this engine.
Is white smoke coming out of the exhaust? Is the oil milky? If so then you could have a blown head gasket. You can also check by getting an exhaust gas checker at Autozone to see if there is exhaust in your coolant. HTH.
If you are getting exhaust smoke coming out of the radiator overflow, you need to replace the head gasket that seals the cylinder from the cylinder cap where your coolant runs through to cool the engine.
Crawl under the vehicle and look up at the exhaust system. The catalytic converter is the first part that looks like a muffler mounted in the exhaust system coming rearward from the engine.
It could be condensation from hot exhaust gases on the cool exhaust pipe.
