Notice a fair bit of white cloudy smoke coming from exhausts daily basis.


Its not continuous just now and again for a minute or two. then stops.


Also are these cars known to drink up petrol like pretty fast?

How many miles on this vehicle?
Does it consume oil between changes?
Does it smoke only after sitting for hours?
That would suggest worn valve guides/seals.

My guess white cloudy smoke is oil burning. Steam from coolant dissipates quickly and may have a sweet smell. You can tell the foul smell of oil burning. Valve stem seals is my first thought. If so it will blow smoke on cold startup and after idling for some time then driving off.

Best practices for requesting help:If you haven't done so fill in your vehicle info and profile page.
Shows up to the left.

  • * Be sure you are in the correct forum for your vehicle.
    * Do a search for your problem. A lot of stuff has been asked and answered.
    * Do not double post for the same problem..
    * Take a single issue at a time. Posting multiple issues at once will get convoluted very quickly.
    * Give the model year....Engine size...transmission type (auto or standard)
    * VIN number can be very helpful.
    * Did you buy the vehicle new, if not, how many miles were on it when purchased? How many miles on it now?
    * Describe the problem the best you can.
    * Tell us what has been tried, if anything.
    * If the vehicle has been to a repair facility it would be nice if you can scan or take picture of the bill and attach it to the post.
* If your vehicle is under warranty you should have the dealer check it out. If it's an issue they see many times they will generate a safety recall or do a TSB. This is how they know.


This information can save a lot of time and get you the answers you need much faster.
