Smoke coming out of the exhaust Vauxhall Zafira

Asked by: 71 views Engine Question

We drive a Vauxhall Zafira and it has been making a clicking noise for a while. It’s when we seem to go up hills and the car needs power. The only way I can describe it is like a rollercoaster. We were driving today and the clicking noise happened really rapidly and then white smoke began blowing out of the exhaust. What does this mean?

    Hello

    What colour is the smoke? We could start with that question to figure out the problem!

    White smoke – Water
    Blue smoke – Oil
    Black smoke – Unburned fuel

    🙂

    Okay that does not sound good

    Is there much pressure inside the coolant system?
    Do you have to fill up coolant often?
    Any signs of overheating?

    A lot of white smoke is either from water in the exhaust system or coolant from the engine, can you smell it if it smells sweet? 🙂
