SOURCE: 97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

OVER FUELLING ON VW POLO 1.6i. CAR STARTS ONCE HOT DOES NOT START


Backfire means timing is off and unburnt fuel mixture explodes either from compression or a hot exhaust system. Black smoke could mean the fuel mixture is too rich. A metering component is not functioning and sending wrong data correcting the air/fuel ratio.

Smokes when I start it, smokes ALOT when I start it, it is embarrassing...... after it has sat for aprox 3-4 hours and I go to start it there is so much smoke that I wait for people to clear the area. The...


I have a similar problem - though my timing is right exactly where it should be

I'm wondering if it has something to do with the build up of carbon in the manifold... the smoke has a blue gray hue as well and defiantely smells like diesel

But I'm also zen with the fact that there's always going to be smoke upon a cold start up... it's the price you pay for a diesel... now if I can just get it back up to 50mpg instead of the 44 I've been getting I'll be happier

2000 TDI - Lots of white smoke at cold start. Engine misses badly at midrange and at cruising conditions. Good power when peddle is mashed and seems to run smooth then. White smoke mostly goes away at idle...


Sounds like your injection pump timing is off, an injector is leaking or a bad seal on your IP.
VW dealers have a horrible reputation when it comes to TDI's. Check out the posts over at www.tdiclub.com Those guys are very knowledgeable - and the first thing they'll tell you is don't take it to a dealer.
You can probably find someone in your area that has a copy of Vag-Com (scantool software that vw uses) software that could look at your timing. It definitely sounds like your dealer was throwing parts at your car because they didn't know what your problem is. If I were you, I'd copy and paste your post from here over at www.tdiclub.com
