My first guess would be that injector has failed.
Someone would need to test the resistance and operation.

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.

SOURCE: my car started to die when idling about 3 weeks

you may have dirty injectors, and the fuel tank additive wont fix it, you need to have a professional pressurized injection cleaning and possibily an intake plenum and throttle body cleaning, if you are not qualified save your self the headaches and take to a reputable shop you trust and have it done professionally.... should curue the problem... also invest in a new fuel filter install...

SOURCE: replaced fuel pump, spark plugs wires, fuel

Need a little more info to fixya.
Have you checked the MAP, O2, Coolant temp sensors (as well as all the rest) and the wires running to them?
Have you tried unplugging the sensors one at a time and seeing if that changes things?
Have you checked the conditions of the vacuum lines?
Lastly have you scanned the compute for codes?

SOURCE: gas smell in exhaust

you have either a blown head gasket or cracked head. The white smoke is coolant passing through the engine and exhaust. The gas smell is from compression leaking past the gasket or head, pushing fuel vapor into the air.

I have a 95 Nissan maxima and smoke and gas coming out my tail pipe I was told that it was my was fuel regulator all I smell is gas when i my start car can some body plz help me find the problem plz


It would be unlikely gas is coming out of the tailpipe. The fuel regulator can leak internally and externally. If there is an internal leak with the regulator, the vehicle will be overfueled and will run poorly if at all with black smoke out the tailpipe and most likely the check engine light on/flashing. You may experience a fuel smell. If the regulator is leaking external, there will be a definate fuel smell. You may also have an injector or injector seal leaking as well. Depending on the engine size 4 or 6 cyl, it can be hard to spot an injector leak. However, a fuel p;ressure regulator can easily be located and checked for a fuel leak.

Nissan Maxima engine oil smells like gas. White smoke coming from tail pipe


if the oil smells like gas then there is either too much fuel entering the cylinder and not being burnt or the oil has not been changed with in the change interval. also if you take short trips a lot this can cause this as the engine won`t get hot enough to burn excess fuel and it is always in cold mode allowing more fuel supplied than is needed. the white smoke usually indicates coolant burning, but keep in mind when its cold out you will get what looks like white smoke but is steam from the exhaust. does the smoke smell like something sweet as this will indicate coolant.

Cranks won't start


smelling gas like you are is a bad thing, engine must turn over to fire injector. sounds like flooding ( possible ECM/power computer bad ). Before condemning the computer pull all spark plugs, disable ignition coils, then try cranking to see if engine will turn over. Be carful if hydro locked gas will be pushed out the spark plug hole/s

White smoke coming out of tail pipe and it smells like gas when warming up.


White smoke usually means that you have a blown head gasket,need to have it check out asap,could damage motor worse and cost more.How is your antifreeze in your over flow container,Is it low,check your oil and see what it looks like,might be milky.

It has white smoke when u run it for 10 min it stops


Sounds like a bad head gasket. Check your oil after car sat all night. See if there is white , or any signs of water in your oil. Smell dipstick at the same time to see if there is the smell of gas in the oil. While car is cold check the coolant for traces of oil in the cooling system. , or the smell of gas present. When the head gasket goes,it no longer separates the different ports for oil, coolant, and gas mixtures. What happens is that coolant gets into your engine cylinders where gas, oil, and air mix, and ignite. This causes steam to come out of the tail pipe. If you are going to change it yourself, keep me informed and I can walk you through it. What size motor is in the car?

I have a 1996 Saturn Sl2. It ran out of gas one day and sat on the side of the road for a few days. Well, I finally got it towed home, and changed the fuel filter. The fuel pump is good. But, it is smoking...


Here are your possible problems. 1)Leaking injectors(Rare), Leaking Fuel Pressure Regulator(Common) Bad Engine Temp Sensor. (Common), Here is what i would check. Find the Regulator and pull off vacuum line, (located on fuel rail near injectors) check if there is fuel present in line. If yes replace regulator. Check temp sender with a scanner your looking for a reading in the (-) or below 140deg F, when car is first started and smoke present if yes replace engine temp sender for computer(not sender for guage!) IF both those pass inspection replace injectors(Not common problem)

Have a 2001 ford f250 super duty need to know how to check fuel injectors......truck was running fine and then the enine ran real rough and when you push the gas pedal to the floor there is little...


The fuel injectors have a resistance of between 10 to 18 ohms.Test each injector. If any of the injector readings are higher or lower than they should be, you need to replace them.
For more troubleshooting:---

Put a long screwdriver directly on the injector while the car is running. Hold the handle up to your ear. You should be able to hear a rhythmic clicking sound. If you do, your injector is good. Hearing a clunk-clunk type noise means you have found your problem. Hearing silence or unusual clicking patterns means either the injector, wires or plunger may be bad or sticking. You will either have to clean or replace them.

-------------

Many a times you get black smoke from exhaust due to faulty injectors.Check fuel injectors. Leaking injectors create an overly rich air/fuel mixture and cause black smoke. Take the valve cover off and look at the exhaust part of the injector, when it is running. Each time the injector fires, you should see oil exhausting from it. If you see oil coming out, then the injector is good. When replacing a bad injector, take the glow plug out and crank the engine to get any oil out of the cylinder.----------------- This should help.Thank you.
