It depends on the make/model and not so much as the mileage, but how well the maintenance has been done on the car. If the engine just puffs when taking off from a stop, then it could be the valve seals/guides letting too much oil get into the combustion chamber. It could also be the wrong viscosity of oil. If the engine smokes more like all the time, then you will be having oil ring control problems. Then again, now that the weather is cooler outside, you may see steam coming out of the tailpipe. This would be absolutely normal.
White smoke coming from your tail pipe often indicates an issue with your coolant. The smoke comes from burning coolant. The engine sputters and white smoke is likely an issue with the head gasket.
Pretty sure that means it is burning your engine coolant. The anti freeze is somehow leakinging into the combustion chamber and when it burns with the gas the smoke is white.
White smoke. Means water/coolant in your engine. Most likely you blew the head gasket, if you smell oil and see white smoke.
white smoke is coming from my exhaust why?
White smoke coming from the engine can mean many different things. One such thing is that your car may have a blown head gasket or that oil is burning in the engine.
Car maintenance is very important for a smooth ride. When there is white smoke coming out of the exhaust, it is usually an indication of water in the engine.
Head gasket more than likely! White smoke is coolant.
White smoke is usually vaporized coolant. You may have a blown gasket or a crack somewhere.
coolant leaking into the engine
Sounds like engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder
white smoke from diesel exhaust generally means you have engine coolant leaking internally in enginevery rarely , white smoke can indicate a problem with the turbo
It is buring oil this is a wrong answer whe engine burn oil to the exhaust smoke is a heavy white smoke no black
White smoke coming out of a vehicle means you need to either get your oil changed or the oil you have is too small of a weight. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If your engine is warmed up and blowing white smoke , it sounds like engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket , or a warped or cracked head
NO!! White smoke indicates the burning of oil. The law says, "ANY smoke coming from the engine during any part of the test is grounds for failure." I've been an Emissions guy in Denver for 23 years. White smoke is oil. Black is gas (too rich). Black smoke can get pricey. White smoke is always pricey!!
If the engine is fully warmed up and you are still getting white smoke coming out of the tailpipe when the engine is idling , it sounds like engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket or some other problem
Blue smoke, burning oil. (tired) White smoke, burning coolant. (bad head gasket) Black smoke, excess gasoline (flooding).
White smoke usually indicates a water leak into the engine block. Blue or black smoke would indicate an oil leak. possibly pistons!! my 88 Monte Carlo did that
have a mechanic check your turbo.most will tell u that a turbo blows black smoke but can aslso blow white smoke when turbo is malfunctioning
If white smoke is coming out of the exhaust when the engine is warmed up , it sounds like engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder
the smoke that comes out of a exhaust pipe is supposed to be white
white smoke=water. probably the intake or intake manifold.
white smoke coming from my tailpipe of my Honda civix lx 1997?
That means that rad. coolant is leaking into the combustion part of the engine, and burning, thus white smoke. Most likely the head gasket has to be replaced, and have the head checked for cracks also.
sounds like you have head gasket problem if the exhaust smoke is white in colour then its engine coolant if its blue smoke then its burning oil you will need to get the engine pressure tested at a garage.
No I don't, but if you do, you need to have it repaired, or it'll seize the engine
