SMOKING WHITE

BMW 525

I have 1995 BMW 525i and it is always giving off whit smoke. I noticed it does not overheat or anything like that. The outside temperature is 38deg F. All the other cars are running fine. Sometimes I smell collant 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.
