Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

Every time I come to a stop the 2002 Tarus smells like rubber burning. Had it looked at from several mechanics.


Check to ensure you do not have oil dripping on the exhaust pipe. You will see discoloration from oil burning off. How can you tell it is white smoke by the smell? White vapor is usually water perhaps you have an antifreeze leak. Check your brakes, they can heat up and smell funny. I am sure you have checked the belts by now.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

We have a 2003 gmc Envoy V6 4X4 Automatic has 108000 miles on it i see that the hose was replaced going to the radiator we smell antifreese under the hood and having to put anti freeze in the over flow...


Well, the fluid from the radiator could be evaporating. Is the upper hose solid when you shut it off?

If you 'smell' antifreeze there 'is' a leak.

Is the fluid 50/50 strength antifreeze to water?

Usually, if there is a leak, it will drip to the ground or come out of the tailpipe (in the case of a bad head gasket).

It is not unusual to have a car with 108,000 mi. to have a leak somewhere.

Keep looking and topping off the fluid.

Theres oil mixing with my antifreeze,why i smell antifreeze inside my car while driving


You could have two problems. First, does the engine require more oil than usual, is the oil level always low ? Does the transmission lose oil ? Could possibly be the trans. cooler in the rad. is cracked. Usually with a blown head gasket you get coolant into the engine, or burn it. ( white smoke ) Has the engine ever over heated ? On the smell part, this could be the heater core is leaking. Have a pressure test on the rad. to try and help find the problems.

MY 2000 MAXIMA IS HAVING LOTS OF ISSUES


Your antifreese is leaking through the engine block The white smoke that you see coming out off the tail pipe is steam from heating up the antifreeze. This problem needs to be taken to a mechanic because your engine may have a blown head gasket or a cracked block. You keep having to fill it up with antifreeze because it is evaporating inside your engine block. Check your oil and see if the color is like a white milky liquid. If so then its definitely your head gasket. Try not to run the car to much like this because you will crack the engine. This is a pretty expensive job. You may want to consider a different vehicle because who knows what else will go wrong with this vehicle. I hope this helps you.

Antifreeze smell


If u smell the antifreeze inside the car, the heater core needs to be replaced most likely. It is leaking inside, and will get worse, to the point of 'fogging up' the windows inside.
