Head gasket. Having water in the oil IS NOT GOOD! The cloud of smoke you are seeing is the water vapor. Do not run the engine anymore. You can do a lot of damage. You need to get the head gasket replaced and flush out your cooling system because you probably have oil in your radiator too. You'll probably need a new thermostat too. Hope this helps. I'm a Chevy mechanic.

When cold starts but dies.to start, peddle to floor, rev a minute then it idles but at times dies when accelerating from a stop. Raw gas smell present and puff of blue smoke when it starts.


have you checked the cylinder compressions as backfire and blue smoke can be a symptom of low compression , either rings or valve seats but would need a dropdown test to be sure

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after warming up it stops smoking.


The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

I have a 1995 chevy astro van that throws out gray smoke from the exhaust which later turns to black smoke the smoke also smells like gas


May be a head gasket. Anti-freeze will burn white / gray. Make sure you are not losing coolant. Look at your oil on the dip for any signs of foaming / water.
Take care.

98 saturn it won't start when the engine is cold i have to put the gas peddle to the floor while I turn the key till it starts. when it does start I get large cloud of blue smoke. once the engine is warm...


Replace The Throttle Positioning Sensor...When you put Accelerator to the floor ... It rolls the Position Sensor Cam to tell computer etc to put Injectors Etc..into cold start mode...as soon as the motor fires..injectors take over and do their job..The Black smoke is the Extra Gas Put it cylinders to Purge it in a cold Start Mode...Throttle Positioning Sensor..and Yes You Can do It.!!! AutoZone-O'Reillys Etc..Easy Fix !! And Remember Castrol GTX-5-30/ 10-30 !!!
For God Sakes DO NOT Run 5-20 Or 20-50 Tooo Thin- Tooo Thick !! -Thanks-Matthew
