Toyota FXGT 1990 Smokey :(

Hey, im 16 years old.. Fairly new to the forum.
I bought my first car not so long ago, and now have to pay $1250 excees fee's to my parents as some idiot reversed out of a car park while i was also reversing.. Sucks when i only got a basic super-markey job.

Anywayz, my car is a toyota corolla FXGT 1990.
And, im noticing that when i turn it on its all fine.. i leave it for say, 3 minutes and it starts smoking out of the exhaust.. at first i thought it was because the car is warming up but it seem's to always do this.

Im totally newbie at car releated stuff, just got into the audio side of thing etc but beside that..

Can anyone help me solve this problem?
Thanks.

( Note, my budget is really low )

Is the smoke white, black, or does it have a bluish tint to it?

Some mornings its cold, but it smokes when its sunny aswell and the tempature is around 25 degrees outside.

It takes a while untill it smokes, like it has a sports exhuast, and it makes a few weird noices (say after 2 mins of firing it up ) then it starts smoking.

Ummmm....25 c or f?

It's not getting into the car is it?

Have you checked all your fluids and such? No warnings of low fluid levels?

http://www.2carpros.com/topics/whitesmk.htm Go to the 92 Cavalier and take a look at that. Is your scenario the same?

Quote:
# White Smoke-Very dense, white smoke present in vehicle exhaust gases is symptomatic of transmission fluid being sucked into the engine's combustion chamber and burned. This white smoke is not normal and, if present in the exhaust, generally indicates a problem with the transmission modulator valve. This problem can typically be corrected by replacing the modulator valve.
- http://www.cabq.gov/aircare/smoveh.html

Everything I've looked at seems to be talking about some leakage of the fluids. Have someone take a look at it for you, that's it.

You probably won't be able to do it yourself, so find someone that can help you. Take it to two-three mechanics before you do anything (advice given to me) that involves money.
