GIVING OFF WHITE SMOKE

1995 BMW 525i • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 100,000 miles

1995 BMW 525i. My BMW is always giving off white smoke. I noticed it does not overheat or anything like that. The outside temperature is 38 deg F. All the other cars are running fine. Sometimes I smell coolant inside the car but have been unable to find a wet spot in the car. Help.

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.E, cracked head/blown head gasket. Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition. Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption. The smell of coolant inside your car is caused by a leaking heater core.
