First, is it white smoke? if so, you probably have a blown head gasket. take your oil cap off and look at it. does it look normal or does it look milky. if it is milky inside, then I am sorry, looks like a major repair and I wouldn't drive it. also look in your radiator and see if there is oil in it. if so... same problem. if it is black smoke, then you are burning oil or transmission fluid. either way, you need to take it to the shop..

Power windows, dome lights, sunroof don't work in 05 mercury montego(passenger side mirror started to smoke when I released the trunk from key fob engine off)


Your fuse most likely popped. The smoke in your mirror is probably a short. The wires to the mirrors light are very thin. They do tend to break and cause a short. Check the wires before replacing the fuse, it may cause a fire.

White smoke out tailpipe car has 17300.00 miles


White smoke is coolant being burnt in the cylinder,
most likely from a failed head gasket

I would think a 1989 is too old to fix
Cost more than the car is worth

Any oil useage between oil changes every
say 3000 to 4500 miles is too much,engine is
worn

Car kicks out smoke after siting at a red light


Blue Smoke-- is Oil

White smoke -- is Coolant

There are many possibilities there,none too
hopeful, as to a fix

Oil is going where it shouldn't & will be near
impossible to find out why

Are you sure it is not just an oil leak onto the exhaust
& burning off

I have no idea what your talking about

Oil Leak Where -- Engine Oil ?

There aren't any products that stop leaks
They just take your money thru advertizing

Smoke coming out of what & where?

Tell us the history on your vehicle
Have you had it looked at by a repair shop?

Mercury xr7 starts then starts coughing and chocking like not


My cougar does the same, it starts and then about 1 minute later (or so) the check engine light comes on and the car idles really high, with black smoke out the exhaust. It stays in second gear i think and it will not shift out of it. Max speed is 40 mph with the rpms screaming, it will go off after a long time but this is agrivating. I have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 3.8 ltr Any help please?
