My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Usually white smoke coming from the exhaust pipe is caused by a mixture of engine oil and coolant. In most cases, this is caused by damage to the engine, like a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Before you take your vehicle to a mechanic to attempt and repair this issue, I would strongly recommend having one of our mobile mechanics come to your location to complete a smoke coming from exhaust inspection. This will allow them to inspect your vehicle to determine what is causing the issue and recommend the best course of action.
