Q: Q: White smoke

asked by on

It brings out white smoke and the jacks

If there is thick white smoke coming from the exhaust, it can be the sign of a failed head gasket. You will see white smoke from the exhaust during very cold weather as well, which does not always mean there is a problem unless the vehicle is performing very poorly. I would need a bit more information about the context of the smoke to give you more precise advice. You may want to have this checked in person by a certified mechanic. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the smoke and let you know if any repairs are needed.
