How's your rad and overflow level?
White smoke can/may mean antifreeze getting into places it isn't meant to be.
Was the oil "foamy"? as in something else mixing with it?

If it just started doing it and the levels look fine it is still something to watch closely.

So your telling us that you just got your oil changed. You pulled out the dipstick, wiped it off, reinserted it, pulled it out again and there was no oil on the dipstick at all? Because if thats what your trying to tell us then your basically driving your car with no oil in it. You need to fill it up to the appropriate level before you do ANYTHING else. If you don't then your problem will move from white exhaust smoke to no exhaust at all. Hopefully it isn't too late.


Our Father, who art in Autos, hollowed be thy frame. Thy Horsepower come, Thy torque be fun, in Imports as in Domestics. Give us this day our daily fuel, and forgive us our hooning, as we forgive those who hoon against us, and lead us not into chrome accents, but deliver us from rice. For thine is the Cam, and the Piston, and the Rod, for ever and ever. Or until they break.. Amen.

Am I the only one that's wondering if the oil level doesn't have anything to do with his white exhaust? I thought white exhaust meant antifreeze or coolant or something in the exhaust. Of course, you need to fill up on oil ASAP, but if someone could explain why the 2 would be related, that'd be cool, cause I don't see how they would be.

If you have a head gasket problem for a very long time, and anitfreeze keeps goinginto your cylinder overtime you can screw up your rings due to indadequate lube properties from the water/antifreeze contamination, which can then cause blow by and lower oil leves as well. I guess thats the only whey the 2 can be related.

you're correct in that white smoke typically will mean antifreeze or water in the oil. Usually a headgasket problem. A bluish smoke can often mean oil burning which can be related to low oil. Sometiems just by looking at the smoke its difficult to tell which color it is, so the best way to check is the fluid levels, or looking at the oil itself.

Also, another thing to consider is how much oil was put in at the the oil change. A lot of people don't know that GSRs usually take 4.5 qrts to fill and only put in 4.
