Valve seals/guides, plugged oil drain holes in the head, PCV valve/line plugged/malfunctioning, etc. IF its WHITE it could b a blown head gasket-IF its BLACK it means there is 2 much FUEL getting 2 the engine & if its BLUE it COULD b valve stem seals OR piston rings or @ the WILDEST blocked oil return holes.

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.

There are many different smoking tricks to try. It all depends on the patience of the smoker. A few easy smoking tricks include the French Inhale and the Snap. The French Inhale involves letting the smoke billow from the mouth and inhaling the released smoke through the nostrils. The Snap is simply letting the smoke billow from the mouth and then sucking the smoke back in rapidly.

Fel Cones are corrupted seeds that fall from the trees. They billow with green smoke

smoke poured out of the exhaust of the car.

It is buring oil this is a wrong answer whe engine burn oil to the exhaust smoke is a heavy white smoke no black

If you are talking about "smoke" that fills the interior it can be one of two things. One, a leaking heater core. Two...if your engine smokes from oil dripping on the exhaust, etc you could have a crack in the housing for the A/C and it's pulling in the smoke and gasses from the engine compartment.

White smoke from the exhaust is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. With the excessive oil usage, it sounds like this engine has been destroyed by this coolant. It has mixed with the oil, and has ruined the engine. Time for an overhaul.

Could be a diesel? If not then replace your oxygen sensor on your exhaust. A bad oxygen sensor causes the exhaust smoke to be dark in color.

The answer depends in part on the color of the smoke.

Depends on the color of the smoke. Blue smoke-oil. Black smoke-unburnt fuel.

white smoke is coming from my exhaust why?

from smoke from car, train exhaust, smoke from refuse burning

of course it emits "smoke" you mean exhaust? it has to go somewhere, if it's a propeller plane it has an exhaust just like car, if it's a turbine, it has an exhaust outlet, if it's a jet engine, the exhaust is self explanatory

You may have oil on the exhaust, once this has burnt off the smoke should stop.

The exhaust fan is designed to help move all cooking smoke out of the kitchen. This is used to make sure the smoke will not mass in the kitchen.

My understanding of exhaust smoke is that Blue is oil, Black is unburnt fuel, White is unburnt diesel on cold start. The main question would be, how much smoke and when does it do it?

possible blown head gasket. I don't get white smoke from my exhaust! is it from yours? If it is just after you start your car it is normal.

if you have blue smoke coming into the exhaust that means your piston rings are bad and are letting oil into your combustion chamber and then causing the oil to be burned with your air fuel mixture and that's why your exhaust is blue from having that burnt oil dumped out of the exhaust valve and out the exhaust
