SOURCE: 99 cavalier Smoke coming out from under dashboard!

now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.

since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar

SOURCE: RENAULT LAGUNA 2.2DCI 2003 MODEL EXCESS CRANKCASE PRESSURE

This is quite a common problem,especially with the 2.2 dci engine,although as usual Renault wont admit the problem.The reason your engine throws the oil after a run and not when stationary is this problem is caused by the turbo pressurising the crankcase.You can rev the engine all day but when theres no load on it then the turbo is not working at full pressure and all is well.
The cure for the problem is to fit a new rocker cover which incorporates part of the inlet manifold.The breathing system on these engines is complicated and the rocker cover has to handle both inlet gases AND exhaust gases and although no one can explain why a new cover cures it,I suspect the plastic the cover is made of is not robust enough and either becomes porous or warped and this allows gases into the crankcase,pressurising it and focing oil out either through the dipstick or it blows out the blanking plug in the timing cover.
It is not a massive job to replace the rocker cover as long as the injectors come out easily.If they dont then youre in real trouble.Good luck,Duncan.

SOURCE: oil consumption, no smoke, no leaks

Yes a crappy PVC valve can cause some of your problems but not necessarily all of them, they are cheap, I always replace it to start. The air cleaner housing being full of oil is like how the oil is being consumed. In addition to a PVC valve, there may also be a blow-by hose running into the housing. check to see what other hoses go into the housing & which ones have oil coming from them. I'm not familiar with the "Motor Honey" you mentioned but I rarely add additives to my Engine oil, especially if they are thickeners. The only stuff I recommend is a Quaker state or similar "High Mileage Oil". These semi-synthetic oils have additives to swell old rubber & cork seals in older engines and can help reduce oil consumption & leakage. Again, it may not be a total solution, but it couldn't hurt to drain out all of the existing oil & replace with a high mileage type & also change the filter at the same time. Never mix it with other oils, despite the manufacturer telling you it may be safe to do so.

3.0 litre V6 turbo diesel Mercedes. 115,000 miles. When it is left on tickover for 10 to 15 mins starts to smoke white/grey smoke from exhausts. After a few minutes of normal driving the smoke stops.


Possible cause is several drops of oil are leaking past the valve guide seals when the vehicle just sits. When it is started the oil begins to burn off in the cylinders and after awhile the smoke disappears. I have always recommended cha going the oil to a synthetic and adding an oil additive called Restore. It comes in a cylindrical can in 4, 6 or 8 cylinder size. Put 1 can in with the new oil. Drive the vehicle on the highway for 45 - 60 minutes. I recommend putting on a few hundred Mrs. The additive restores the valve seals preventing the oil from dripping into the cylinders. Have used it on my customers vehicles for 20 years. Saved them a lot of money from replacing the seals.

Excessive exhaust smoke


You may have a broken ring or scored cylinder wall and piston. Have a cylinder leak down test performed to confirm this. Other causes can be a plugged crankcase ventilation system causing pressure to build in the engine, if that is the case the air cleaner box should have oil in it. The grey color of the smoke means you are burning a lot of oil.

Black smoke from tailpipe of BMW 320D

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

Hi, My Sidekick starts to "putter" as i drive like it's not getting enough fuel. Then when I accelerate it blows large amounts of white smoke out the exhaust. It did this once before last summer...


White smoke always means that oil is getting into the cylinder. This will make the car sputter. You have to find out why the oil is getting in there. It needs to go to a mechanic because it could be any number of reasons why the oil is getting in.

Cannot find the carburettor - where is it please?


if it's a 2001 model it is fuel injected which means it doesn't have a carby. the white grey smoke is burning oil which means you might want to keep an eye on you're oil level but the strong smell of fuel and lack of acceleration could be caused by a fuel leak somewhere

White smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating


This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

Loss of power and acceleration on Mazda 6 Turbo diesel 2003


I'm assuming that that smoke was more previlant while going uphill because that's when the turbo would be really spolling up to max psi. I would guess that if you really got on the gas hard and got the turbo going even on a flat surface, that you would notice the smoke too. The loss of power and the white/grey smoke are tell tale signs that your turbo is bad or starting to fail. Good luck!

Smoke from exhaust... toyota rav4 1996


Welcome to FIXYA

There in only 1 thing i can think of where the white smoke is from it could be anitfreeze if so it would mean a cracked head or a bad head gasket if it gets worse then you have a big problem but if you check the water level and it looks fine then you should be ok for a while

if it was black smoke or a real dark gray then it would be oil


i hope this helps you out have a good day
