Yes this can cause smoking, the oil is coming up into air cleaner (you may need to change the air filter) through the crankcase breather, the solution drain out the excess oil, do this as soon as possible or you may damage the engine, the O2 sensors, and the Catalytic Converter.

SOURCE: ford escort when strts blows blue smoke

Most generally when an engine smokes on start up it is a sign of worn valve guide seals.If this engine has over 150,000 miles on it and/or it has ever been overheated it is very possible that the valve guides themselves may have escessive clearance and are the cause of the valve seal leak.These vehicles have a history of cylinder head problems and if this is determined to be the problem, the only true repair for it is to have the cylinder head rebuilt or replaced.This process can cost upwards of $900.00 to $1,200.00 to do so you might just put up with the problem until it become unbareable. Always be sure to keep the engine oil full and changed on regular interval of 3 mos/ 3,000 miles and use Lucas oil stabilizer to help minimize the oil useage .

Hi:
If the smoke is whitish in color, and just started doing this suddenly, then most likely you have a leaking head gasket, and it is letting coolant get in your cylinder, and possibly oil into your coolant. I am not sure about the noises you are hearing, but you should have your car checked out as soon as possible, or your engine could be permanently damaged, or it could be already.

Hi I got a Toyota corolla 160i gle and it was parked very long so wen i started it wen ideling no smoke BT wen hit da fuel it smokes and on take off BT wen driving it does nt smoke


Generally, it may smoke on startup for a few seconds then quit and seem to run fine, then you hit the gas and it smokes again, so Is it white smoke gray smoke or blue smoke? Because IMO it's either a bad head gasket, bad valve guides, rings are going bad ot dumping to much fuel into carb or injectors.

Clean the Carburator completely. If the problem persists, check the timing, timing chain, and distributor coil.

Hello folks i have a 1981 vette it smokes gray


hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! I would begin by getting this baby scanned. I agree with you that there are some carb. issues, such as gumming which could be cleared up with a couple of bottles of Seafoam, from your local auto parts store. Good luck with it. Regards, Joe

I have a ford sierra carburateur engine from 1984 1600 l (cc)


Does this engine over heat? If so white smoke and over heat usually means blown head gasket. If the smoke has a bluish tint to and the engine does not overheat then the piston rings are worn out and the engine will need to be rebuilt. Hope this helps, let me know.
