Question about 1999 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Large amount of white smoke on first start of the day

I have a 1993 Isuzu trooper which genrally runs great apart from the first start of the day.It starts quickly but as soon as it starts it throws out loads of white smoke from the exhaust and runs very lumpy.After leaving it running for a few minutes the smoke stops and the engine lumpiness dissapears and from then on it runs well without smoke for the rest of the day.
p.s it is the 3.1 turbo diesel.

Have you had the injector recall check carried out? There is a problem with these injectors and this produces the symptoms you are describing. I suggest that you contact Isuzu direct for help. They have been very helpful in the case of my trooper

My Isuzu Trooper was not revving as usual.Now it is emitting a lot of white smoke. So far,injectors have been pulled out and cleaned, emptied the fuel tank, flushed all fuel pumps and changed fuel filter...


Check the radiator fluid level. If the smoke is not present when it is first started, and after a short time later it begins to smoke, it may be a blown head gasket that is letting radiator water into the combustion chamber. The symptom of, "not revving as usual", would be an inconsistent engine speed at idle. If the fluid level is going down in the radiator, and you don't see fluid on the ground, with the exception of a small drip out the tail pipe when the engine first starts, a small amount of water in the combustion chamber will cause a lot of white smoke. It can be normal for a small amount of water to drip from the tail pipe, depending on humidity, but once the engine is warmed up, the, "white smoke", should not have moisture in it. A paper towel held at the tail pipe for a few seconds should not get wet after the engine is warmed up, and the radiator fluid level should not decrease if no fluid is leaking on the ground.

white smoke could be steam from condensation in the exhaust or maybe valves? check your ignition timing maybe the black smoke caused by the car running to rich.

Hi.My guess is the glow plugs.They may not heat up enough through age or one or two are faulty. And, when it has run for a while, the engine is still warm enough to fire it up.Have they been checked?

Engine runs wild with white smoke


If its a 4JX engine then its injectors and seals at fault dont run it any more cos it may blow up - like rods through the side !
The diesel is going straight into the engine without being injected and as the fuel lift pump is mechanical it wont stop on the key .
Should be under isuzu warranty though they are doin that repair on 1998 Troopers over here for free .
