Why deos my car everytime i start it especially in the morning have a bkue/white/grey smoke come out of it

Don't worry about the smoke when your car starts it will mostly happen in cold mornings but as car heats up it should be gone its just cause the car has to heat up to a certain tempeture. Hope it helps.

Admits white smoke at tail piece at 4500 revs but uses no disepearces when you drive slower

Oil smoke is blue, white smoke is condensation and emits steam on a cold morning, will disappear at operating temp If your car is a diesel, white smoke indicates unburnt fuel

VW Passat 05. 01-05 shape. When I start it first thing in morning I get blue smoke, covers driveway, but only lasts about 2minutes and no smoke then or while driving. For that two minutes car also shudders...

You have bad valve seals. Blue smoke is oil burning. White is water/coolant, black is to much fuel. If the car runs good after the smoke, then it isn't a head job. I recommend you get a manual. It is exitensive work,, but follow the manual and you can do it.

I have white white smoke coming from under the coolant tank, when starting the car cold in the morning, driver side

I was going to say that white smoke wouldn't be oil but I see that you figured that out. Look for loose coolant hose clamps on or near the reservoir or possibly a small crack in the reservoir itself. As a general rule for gasoline engines: White smoke = coolant, Blue smoke = oil, Gray smoke = fuel, Black smoke = "Uh oh, that can't be good." :-)

My Ford Focus 2l tdci is smoking heavily by times. The car is for the past week in the workshop and no smoking occurred.How come blue smoke is pouring out of the exhaust only sometimes - then it is g

Hi Gert, If the smoke is more visible during the period after start up in the mornings, I would suspect the valve stem oil seals have become hardened and defective. The oil seeps in slowly passing the seals from the cylinder head. Sounds as though you need a head job. Regards John

05 1.8 tdci focus is blowing blue smoke in the morning

Blue smoke is not a good usually means that the piston rings are shot, or the engine is old worn and tired. Is the car using more oil than average? if not...and the engine performs o.k and you pass smog... then i"d say dont worry about it too much. But if you start to see blue smoke constantly, it's time to purchase another engine..its cheaper than buying another car.
