Smoke

Before the members start yelling out to use the search option, there are different reasons for white smoke from the tailpipe.

1.) Blown Head Gasket (BHG): very serious problem, and it smokes thickly from the tailpipes at all times, milky radiator fluid, and constant overheating.

2.) Dirty PCV Valve where carbon deposits gunk up the valve and the smoke comes and goes intermittently.

3.) Wet Gasket Seal, which usually only smokes after the long idles

The bottom two are the most common problems and not as serious as the BHG.

Took a while to get back to you but no problem. My brother put the Maxima rims on that one and some 17's on his other Q. Here is a pic.

BTW I am feeling your rims on your whip. They offset the color pretty nice. I might be changing over soon!

Here's my brother's other Q45 he got a month ago

does anyone know the reasons/symptoms/causes of why the thick white smoke comes from the tailpipes?
it amy be the cold weather too. if you notice it more during the winter months then that may be the reason.
