1990 Geo metro popped and poured white smoke out


its a GEO POPPER.
"no oil up on crank case"

no idea what that means.??????
yes PCV valve. do clog.

white smoke at end if tail pipe.
you didnt say where,?

white smoke has 2 reasons.(tail end)
Steam and oil.
steam goes away fast and looks just like moms tea pot. and smells sweet, like the antifreeze in engine. (rad cap off ,sniff sniff, cold engine)

oil burning, smoke is very very slow to go away.
and smells like , blush burned oil.
if not sure what burn oil looks like or smells like
take out the dip stick on a hot engine
let it drip to the hot exhaust manifold there.
now you know. and is a key diagnostic skill.


no oil seen on dip stick end?, you mean that?
well you need to keep that from happening,
doing weekly service, and for sure old cars.
26 years old.

low oil invites blowing up a good engine.
for sure.
if it did that smoke is oil
if it did 10x worse, both .

my wild guess is you meant to say
I didnt see oil leaking on top of engine.
right?

if the engine backwires to the air cleaner
you forgot to replace the cam belt every 60k miles
the pcv will also be clogged, on cars not getting proper service, super colon.
if the PCV clogs,engine may leak oil bad.

this engine btw is a G10 3 cylinder.
with TBI injection.
we can talk TBI all day, owned one.

white smoke can come from many places
exhaust manifold, leaks of oil can land there
engine can back fire to air cleaner making smoke.
tail end.
steam is much worse. ill not delve in to that yet/.

My s10 emits white smoke when cranked...how do I stop it from smoking when cranked?


White smoke is usually coolant being burned in the cylinders.
If that is the case, I would expect to find a leaking head gasket or other serious engine problem.
Are you adding coolant or oil during the month ?

Cloudy white smoke out of the tailpipe and smokes even more when I stop at a light or slow down


White smoke out of the tail pipe especially on '''warm''' weather usually means antifreeze/coolant leaking in to the cilynders. you may have a blown head gasket(cheapest to replace) and or a crack/warped cilynder head or crack block(not cheap) if the smoke its happening in '''Cold''' weather it could simply be condensation which is normal.

To find out exactly ,in a v6 engine ,simply take out the 2 middle spark plug (1 of each side) and crank the engine. If you see white smoke come out of either one thats where your leak is and you would go from there.

Note:

Just crank the engine '''Do NOT''' let the engine run for long without sparkplugs or catalyc converter damage may occur.in a 4 cilynder engine take out any center spark plug and see where the leak is

I put no-smoke in my crankcase to help with occasional exhaust smoke. When I cranked it after adding it smoked white smoke really bad. Can this be normal?


Unfortunately, with using that product, yes, it is normal... That stuff is not good for any vehicle... What kind of car do you have? Has it had problems with smoking? Black or white smoke? Does the smoke have an odor?

I gotta floor my 1992 bronco 5.0l to crank it


white smoke? Thats an indication of water getting into cylinders. May have a small head gsket leak. Metals expand when heated which explains why it stops smoking after warming up. Have some one pressurize the cooling system when engine is cold, and search or listen for leaks. Pressure gauge on tester will drop in pressure if leak is present.

Heap of white smoke on startup but not always


White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.
