white smoke from exhaust

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with white smoke coming from my exhaust. I first thought it might be a head gasket but my coolant level hasn't gone down at all for the last couple weeks that I've noticed it. I know theres been an odor coming from the exhaust for a while but I have yet to figure out what is causing it. I'm not sure if their related. Otherwise the car runs really good. Theres been no change in fuel economy. It's always been between 22 and 24 mpg city and highway driving. Is there any other problem that would cause white smoke? Thanks for your help.

I went out to check fluids and sniff exhaust smoke this morning and I might've found the problem. I had the thought to check the vacuum modulator on the transmission and there was fluid in the vacuum line. When I smelled the exhaust it kinda had the smell of burning fluid. Not like oil, gas, or coolant. But some other fluid. Would this cause the white smoke?
