    Hi,

    regarding the problem of white smoke on my car, is there
    another filter on the oil lines ? Something that can get blocked
    and cause some problems ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    water entering the exhaust or combustion chamber is the cause of white smoke. Oil will make blue smoke.

    What makes you think it's oil?

    I might be wrong, but the oil level was a kind of low.

    The coolant level on the other side was on the same level and I keep an eye on it frequently.

    When I saw the oil level and don't see coolant on the oil...

    If I have a coolant leak, where should I start looking at ?
    I've already made a compression test and haven't found anyhing strange on it
    so I doubt about the head gasket . . .

    Any ideas ?
