Burning oil, could be leaking from valve covers onto exhaust, could be bad rings on one of the pistons, cracked block or head, or head gasket.

Engine started and was smoking very bad but wouldn't stay started now it won't start at all but will turn over.


The engine was smoking very badly? Was any smoke coming out of the tailpipe? If not, either the exhaust manifold is broken or off the vehicle, or the exhaust pipe is broken, has a hole in it, or it is completely missing! Is it really loud?

You SAID the engine was smoking. But if you said that in error, then perhaps the exhaust system is okay, but oil is getting into the cylinders. Check for a PCV (positive crankcase ventilator) valve that may not be working right. Another thing that can make heavy smoke come out of tailpipes is a head gasket leak, with antifreeze getting into the cylinder chambers. How is the oil level and the coolant level? If there is that much smoke, it is advisable to not drive the vehicle for any reason except an emergency!

1996 Saturn sl2 smoke problem not head gasket no antifreeze seeping in valve cover gasket leaks and losing about a quart and a half of oil no blue smoke kinda white but heavy a little stops driving


White coming out the tail pipes is coolant/water. Doesn't mean the head gasket is blown, but you'll wish it was. Could be a cracked head. They can crack inside the intake or exhaust port. This would still give you a good compression reading. If in the intake, you would have a misfire. Exhaust you wouldn't. As far as the blue goes. It is mostly white in color, with a hint of blue color. Loosing that much oil would be a major leak or the rings are shot. Rings being shot, you would see that blueish tint in the smoke.

What could be causing my f-150 to smell and white smoke coming from engine after driving it at highway speeds and feeling like towing heavy load? 3 different shops and no one knows what's causing it?


Most people associate white smoke as a blown head gasket but I had a Ford that was dumping fuel and it had heavy white smoke and stunk out the exhaust. It had bad injectors. Let your mechanic read your fuel trims on his scanner after a long highway drive. Or do a fuel leak down test on them to know for sure.

Car started smoking heavy fuel smell coming from exhaust and idles rough


White smoke is water in the cylinders/exhaust. (bad head gasket) White with a bluish color is oil. Black smoke is to much fuel. Which do you have.

Heavy exhaust smoke coming from tail pipes while sitting still or taking off. What's the problem


Is it black? black smoke means you are burning too much gasoline could be a bad choke or even a dirty air filter.
Blue smoke means you are burning oil out of your engine
.White means water getting into crank case or pistons.

I have a Mitsubishi IO 1998. After moving slowly for a while (40mins) in traffic, the car exhaust smokes (blue smoke). When I get out of heavy traffic and drive fast, the smoke goes away completely an


sound to me like it may need the head gasket replacing, check for the following, oil in the coolant, coolant in the oil, leaks of oil from the head, not the rocker cover, check your spark plugs for oil, if it is not the head it could be oil contamination in the cylinders above the pistons. hope this helps

Overfilled engine oil on a 2003 porsche 911 turbo.now smoke comes out of exhaust--HEAVY Smoke.I drained engine oil again(along with the turbo)put in 9.25 qts of oil,still having heavy smoke.


The oil was overfilled this could cause a large amount of oil to enter the exaust and possibly the intake depending on crank case ventilation conditions. If you are positive engine oil levels are adjusted perfectly(warm engine check level running for dry sump oil level ect.). Time is needed to burn off oil residue in exhaust system and intake. Warm up engine low rpm no load, drive vehicle slow with little boost over 5 mins slowly raise rpms for another 5 mins keep driving smoke will burn off while making other drivers mad. sorry just smile and wave.
The engine oil on this vehicle should only be changed by an experinced tech.

I would like some advise on my saab se turbo please my car is blowing blue smoke ive been told it is my turbo if so could it of done any damage to my engine


IS the smoking extremly heavy ? Extreme heavy smoke where you cant see behind the car would indicate turbo. If this is the case no engine damage should have occured. The turbo on these cars are oil and water cooled, The heavy smoke indicates a worn seal in the turbocharger is leaking oil directly into the exhaust system and burning there. Catylitic and oxygen sensor damage may occur but engine damage is unlikely.

Blue smoke


sorry to say blue smoke is oil and with what you've described sounds like the oil rings on the pistons have given up the ghost, time for a new engine or a rebuild sorry for the bad news. valve stem seals are the only other thing that will cause exhaust smoke but only when you first start the car never while running. hope i have been of some assistance.
