My Ford Windstorm Has White Smoke Coming Out Of Exhaust,ConstanLy,Thick White smoke


White smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. This can be from condensation in the muffler, but that type of smoke usually dissipates after a minute or two of running. Constant, thick white smoke is usually a sign of water leakage into the combustion chamber(s), either via a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block.

WHEN IT RAINS THE NEXT DAY WE START IT WHITE SMOKE COMES OUT THE MUFFLER WITH A STRONG SMELL OF GAS.


White smoke (steam) indicates antifreeze burning in the cylinder, or trying to, check again to see if it's blue tinted smoke,(almost looks white, but has a tint of blue, and it lingers in the air a lot longer) check the radiator level, and a compression check will determine the condition of each cylinder, evaluate the spark plugs, (there are charts on line) (this determines if the air fuel mixture it correct) let me know what the out come is.

What is causing white smoke coming out of the mufflers when I start the engine?


It's normal for a thin white smoke to come out of the exhaust at initial start up. This is caused from moisture built up in the exhaust burning off. However if there is a continuous flow of thick white smoke it could be a blown head gasket causing coolant to burn.

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

White smoke coming out of muffer


With white smoke coming out of the muffler, that is a sign that engine is burning water also. Check your radiator coolant level for this. There is a possibility the head gasket is the problem for this.
