White Smoke and Oil Coming out exhaust

So got a good one for you guys, coming out of work jump in the car start it. Car took a second to start which was weird. Then the idel was alittle ruff, started to drive away, nothing but cloud of tick white smoke. Got to the bottom of hill at my work, couldn't see a damn thing behind me from how tick the smoke was. Pulled over called the tow truck. I'm luck car is still under warranty, so we will see what happens in the next day or so.

There was a few guesses that its the head gasket or blown engine. There was white milky stuff in the exhaust so maybe head gasket. We will see keep you guys posted.

They're going to cover it with all of the mods you have?

Well the only mods I have added was the headers since last time the car was in for service. They replaced the starter, gasket and the water pump with all those mods over the last year. Intake manifold is a BMW bolt on so no issues there. The only thing I'm worried about is the headers have an issue with the warranty.

Got the results from the dealer today. Looks like its the Crankcase vent valve. So since its plastic and parts that is wear and tear, it's not covered under the warranty. $700.00 to fix. Called Tischer for the part and it was like $500 the same price I'm getting it for.

Is it just me or its the third car with MMW headers that we see with random engine issues in a short period?

Glad to hear it didnt cost you an arm and a leg tho. Could had been worse.

If it was worse would of been covered under warranty. I did ask if the headers and exhaust would cause this and the dealer said no. The problem with my car I drive it hard. And without the headers I had a intake gasket go out, starter and water pump. So had a lot go out before headers. I was waiting for something to go out before the warranty. Lol

But come to find out I still have full engine warranty. Headers are looked at as part if the exhaust. 3 stage manifold is a BMW bolt on so they can't say anything, PE intake is also BMW. Then suspension and wheels don't have anything to do with engine. Personally I think it is because I drive hard I love the performance I have, shit I have a nitrous kit ready to go. Lol which I may not put in now.
