SOURCE: I have a 98 mitsibishi

I think it is blue oil smoke that you are describing, indicating internal engine wear of piston rings and/or valve guides leaking excessive oil.

Usually, this occurs to high mileage vehicles, or vehicles which haven't had regular oil changes every 3,000 mi. for the life of the engine.

Car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving


Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.

If it is a white colored smoke,then it is most likely coolant,being burned.Ahead gasket most likely has blown.If it is black smoke,test would need to be done to diagnose the problem.

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.

My engine is smoking when i start engine on mornings


sounds like valve guids are wearing out.. drying out and cracking. only fix is to replace them. or try a heavier oil. sometimes that will help depending on the severity of the problem.
