cooling fan probably installed incorrectly blade knicking radiator for clicking sound or wire hanging in fan arc smoke should clear in few days as coolant probably splashed on exhaust shroud or it could be you fried your head gasket and the antifreeze is leaking into the motor which causes it to smoke

Sounds like a cracked Head or Block.

If a Honda Accord is smoking when the gas is pressed down than it is possibly running to rich. The car will need to be checked to see if to much fuel is being fired by the injectors.

Black smoke = Overly rich fuel/air mixture. Blue smoke = Oil burning. White smoke = Coolant entering the combustion chamber.

2 reasons: because it's cold outside, or you need an oil change

White smoke = Coolant entering the combustion chamber Blue smoke = Oil burning Black smoke = Overly rich fuel/air mixture

It is a sign that your transmission is about to go out, unless you have all the tools i would suggest shop time.

If the smoke is coming from the electric fan itself, then it needs replacing. It could be the smoke is steam that the fan is drawing from the radiator, and you have a coolant leak at the radiator.

Black smoke from the exhaust is a sign of an overly rich fuel/air mixture. This can ruin your catalytic converter, plus it hurts your mileage, so get this repaired asap.

White smoke does not come from oil, white smoke means that there is water burning. Not good news as that is usually indictive of a head gasket failure. When you poured the oil in you just stirred up the water. Oil smoke is blue.

Black smoke is an indication of an overly rich fuel/air mixture. Your check engine light should be on with this condition. You can ruin the O2 sensor and the catalytic converter if you do not get this repaired ASAP.

White smoke = Coolant entering the combustion chamber which is more than likely caused by a blown head gasket. Blue smoke = Burning oil which is caused by a worn engine. Black smoke = Overly rich fuel/air mixture.

That smoke is steam. You have a leak in the radiator or a hose. Take it to a mechanic.

Smoke from the radiator would be do to a leak evaporating off of it. Find the leak repair or replace necessary parts.

oil leaked past the rings and into the cylinder, when you started your vehicle, that oil burned off

It's very possible. I would definitely take it to a mechanic and get their opinion. Burning smells and smoke can be a sign of overheating, which can severely damage your motor.

White smoke = Coolant entering the combustion chamber. Critical that you stop driving the car and have this repaired. Normally a blown head gasket. Blue smoke = Engine burning oil. Black smoke = Overly rich fuel/air mixture.

Your Accord is overheating. The fan is running to try and cool the engine off. seek professional help immediately before you destroy the engine.

You hav a short in the steering column. TAke it to the garage before it catches on fire.

dry ice changing into smoke

Loss of coolant with no apparent leak. White smoke from the exhaust especially at startup. Oil level overfull. A white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. Engine overheating. A cylinder miss. Air bubbles escaping from the radiator, cap off, engine cold but running.

It is very doubtful that it is smoke. It is most likely steam. Either there is a pinhole leak in the radiator allowing hot coolant to escape that then vaporizes into steam when it hits the atmosphere... or there is something spilled on the radiator that steams when the radiator gets hot. Have the radiator pressure tested for leaks.

white smoke coming from my tailpipe of my Honda civix lx 1997?

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.
