White smoke is Coolant....Blue smoke is Oil.......Black smoke is Unburnt FUEL. Put your hand near the tail pipe while it is smoking. about 20 seconds later smell your hand or take a taste (wont kill you)...If it is sweet....COOLANT!!!!!

Later

BTW...Check your oil for a milky looking apperance DEAD give away for a head gasket.

white smoke doesnt always mean its coolant! when you have white smoke its usually the valve stems! meaning valve job needs to be done to the heads

Not true. If it was valve stem seal it would be oil. Oil burns blue smoke.

Where do you guys get this crap from, the internet? It sure isn't from first hand experience.

I know the general rule is that burning oil is blue but I one had a friend who had overfilled the engine with oil and white smoke came out the exhaust. Took the extra oil out and it went away.
Can't explain it but that's a fact.
