Question about Cars & Trucks

1993 montero had white smoke coming from the front axle and oil.

I just figured my tires are not the same size, anyone who knows what's the damage that's been done, as in whats been damaged and how much to fix aprox. i engaged 4wd and the lights kept flashing so i put it back in 2wd and felt like it was stil engaged. i tried reversing it to disengage it, but still felt the front engaged, as im driving a burning smell comes along with white smoke, it smelled like gear oil or something, it wasn't engine oil as the temp gauge did not raise beyond normal levels. any help will be greatly appreciated, thx in advance

SOURCE: White smoke exhaust

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

SOURCE: is it safe to drive car if brakes caught fire - still has lining!

I would suggest that you adjust your rear brakes. Most likely you have drum brakes in the rear. When the rear brakes are out of adjustment (caused by not using "e-brake" when you park the car. The "e-brake" when applied keeps the rear brakes adjusted with a self adjusting mechanism.) the front brakes have to do ALL of the work to stop the car. In this case going down a steep grade for a long time simply overheated the front brakes. When the front brake pads overheat they get "glazed" and don't want to work anymore. Most likely reason for brake pedal going to the floor is the brake fluid was boiling. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

SOURCE: Engine smells like rubber burning

Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.

The light come on for the 4wd on my 93 dodge Dakota le but will not shirt in


Check the two vacuum hoses on the right
front side, of the front axle housing

You can use a hand held vacuum gauge, to check
the vacuum modulator & see if it will lock the front axle

Have to have the front end up in air & supported &
turn wheel/tire by hand, as you apply vacuum

Keep in mind with 4 wheel drive,only the right rear &
left front are driven wheels,not all 4

If the front axle locks in, with you pulling a vacuum & you have no
vacuum at the front hoses,then go to the transfer shifter & next to
it,is the vacuum switch

I have white white smoke coming from under the coolant tank, when starting the car cold in the morning, driver side


I was going to say that white smoke wouldn't be oil but I see that you figured that out. Look for loose coolant hose clamps on or near the reservoir or possibly a small crack in the reservoir itself. As a general rule for gasoline engines: White smoke = coolant, Blue smoke = oil, Gray smoke = fuel, Black smoke = "Uh oh, that can't be good." :-)

When I bought my fairly used Montero 2000 from the dealer on August 2011 there was a hug white smoke coming out from the tail pipe whenever its started. The smoke gradualy reduced with time, but the engine...


"Hug" white smoke sounds bad. The dealer sold you a lemon. Burning oil is blue/black meaning bad pistons rings or valves. White smoke could be coolant leaking into the cylinders through a cracked head and/or head gasket.
Check you local laws concerning your warranty for used cars and try to return it to the dealer/scammer.

My car oil goes down and smoke from exhaust


It's burning a lot of oil. You'll have to have the engine overhauled to fix it. Did it just start smoking and losing oil? Might be a broken oil ring. It is a bluish smoke out the exhaust? That's a sure sign of oil burning.

1993 mitsubishi pajero exceed-intercooler turbo 2800 diesel engine 4m40


Hi, I have a Pajero 2800 Turbo 1995 Auto. It has developed a bad oil leak somewhere around the front right hand side (from the front) where there seems to be oil spraying over the pipes, etc. Can't see it happening with the engine running and have cleaned the engine off but still can't see where it comes from. It has emptied the sump! Any ideas?
Cheers,
Rob.
