SOURCE: exhaust blowing white grey smoke lots of it and

The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.

Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.

Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

SOURCE: just changed the battery on my skoda fabia vrs

The easiest way to reset the computer coding system is to unhook your battery and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. If the code comes back on after starting your car then whatever is causing the code is still happening.

Beware that you will most likely need to know the code to unlock your radio if it has the theft protection built in where if power is unhooked from the radio the radio is locked until you follow the procedure outlined in your owners manual with a code to get it back working. If you don't have the code, your Volkswagen dealer can help you out as well.

SOURCE: Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.

i have a simialer problem but i was getting neat fuel out the exhaust as well . i removed the engine because id got a replacement then stripped the old one and as i thought it was a valve timing problem.looking at the engine from the front the cams on the left bank had jumped one tooth out of time so fuel was not being burnt and coming straight through the exhaust.strangely it didnt seem to have a big missfire and idling and smoke got worse when warm.

You are most likely burning it. There is much less smoke produced these days, with the cat. converter.

A wear area on yoru vehicle is valve stem seals, when they go, oil is actually pumped out...

Also, consider a high mileage blend oil, like casteroil. I am not into mechaninc in a can, but this stuff lowers consumption and is semi synthetic...

You can reaseal the valve stems, but I wonder about guide looseness, and fairly rapid seal failure again...Still, you can get it going and sell the vehicle....

Fault code p0401

Most probably the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation system) is full of gunk, generated by the exhaust gas and breeder fumes and needs to be cleaned. Though it might be some other system that triggers this error. You could do the following to see if it can be remedied.
  • Check/Clean Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System
  • Check/Replace Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve
  • Check Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve
It is likely this cannot be fixed easily and needs a full diagnostics and system cleanup at the Dealer/Skoda authorized service center. Might cost a lot since you probably need to remove the intake manifold, etc. to get the system cleaned properly.

Skoda octavia vrs deisel turns over but won start

Have you checked the firing to ignite the fuel? Aside from timing, the proper heating of a glow plug is important to ignition.

What are Fault codes P0441 + P0704 On my 05 Plate Octavia VRS?

Code P0441 seems to relate to the EVAP Emission Control System. Either there is a blockage or a leak in one of the valves (N80 or N115) or the pipes between throttle body and tank breather are broken.
Code P0704 seems to be a faulty clutch pedal position switch

Here's more info about code P0441 at ross-tech:

And code P0704 at ross-tech:

Just bought an 1997 crysler sebring took for a ride and started smoking white smoke but heater wortks perfect and no water in oil does not overheat smokes mostly when sitting and idling

Does this happen after about an hour of running? This time of year condensation easily forms in exhaust and gives the "white smoke" look. If you have access to a large garage that you can get it into - see if it's still smoking. DON'T do it long as exhaust fumes can kill you (I had to include that) Keep an close eye on temp gauge and coolant levels. I suspect it's just condensation.
