Is the smoke coming from under the hood or out the exhaust? If it's under the hood you probably have an oil leak which is blowing away while you are driving so you acutally don't see it, but it's still smoking.
If it's out the exhaust, then you have a leak from the cooling system which is going into the engine and being blown out the exhaust (white smoke burned up by exhaust).

White smoke means water is getting into the engine from teh coolant system. Likely that your engine cylinder head has a crack, or head gasket is bad

I just bought this tempo it starts but after i have been driving for about 20 min it starts to smoke and it starts to get hot it stops then you hav eto get a jump to start it.


It sounds like you have brought a lemon as if it hard to start when cold then its lacking compression which is worn engine piston rings and valve guides,and if it starts smoking when driving and if its BLUE smoke then its bad piston rings And if its BLACK smoke then its to much petrol getting into the engine which will also cause the engine to wear out quick as its washing the bores with fuel instead of oil,and that will also stop the engine from starting when hot,
SO if its BLUE smoke replace the engine
If BLACK smoke repair fuel fault.

My car dies when I drive for a short time.


Check O2/mapp sensor. Also if you can elaborate on the behavior of the engine as it stalls, is there smoke, does it race then suddenly die out or does it barely run at a very slow unsteady idol until it floods out?

Answering with as much detail as possible will help get a more definite answer.
Good luck.

Hi my hyundai excel 3 1996 white smoke everytime its idolling. not a black smoke. once its driving there's no white smoke, only when it stop or taking off.


Check your engine oil cap and see if the inside of it has yellowish gooey & slimey build up in it. If so you coolant is leaking in to your engine oil

Smoke problem


hey
there are couple of smoke type.blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
