Excessive exhaust when cold


Its cold! is it like polluting excessive? If the exhaust smoke is white its normal especially on a older car. Have you ever gone outside in real cold weather and when you breathe you can see the steam pretty much same thing. As long as the car is running the same then its more likely to be from the cold. Good idea may be to let your car thoroughly warm up before you drive off in cold weather.

1985 Ford F150 302,5.0 Smoking running Rich and idling high and low


first of all u need to determine what color of smoke it is and is it coming out of the exhaust pipe. black smoke means excessive gas burning ...blue smoke means burning oil ...white smoke if seen in warm weather conditions means coolant leak into cylinder heads... but as running rich and high low idle might have a vacuum leak or carburetor need new base gasket or rebuilt ... good luck

1994 CHEV 4.3L VORTEC 1500 PICKUP TRUCK RUNNING RICH,HARD TO START WHEN COLD NOT IDLING PROPERLY BLACK SMOKE OUT OF EXHAUST IDLE FLUCTUATES STILL RUNS RICH AFTER IT WARMS UP CHANGED CAP PLUGS ROTOR WIRES...


Going on the information you have provided it sounds to me like the fuel pressure regulator.It is located unthe intake manifold and is a lenghty job to do and is exspensive to have done.If you have a good mechanical ability it can be done by yourself in about 4-5 hours.and cost about $100 bucks.

On cold starts, engine knocks for about 1-2 min then runs fine. When i took it in for service they raised my idle and when i start it in cold weather the idle speeds up kinda high for 1-2 min. Car runs...


my 1990 mazda 323 was doing that for the past couple months every now and again, then after my car sat for about a week to get repaired for another problem, the head gasket completely blew, it knocks very rough and loud, and smoke comes out of my engine.
some advice? get rid of it, head's are not cheap fixes

Idles rugh , blows black smoke misses


General info...
Running very rich. Too much gas. Is this a carburetter with automatic choke? Inline 6 cyl.?
Sorry I'm not familier with the toyota itself.
Check that choke pull off is operating after initial start.
Remove air filter. Look at top of carb throat for a disc flap that is closed when engine is off and cold.
As soon as you start engine it should open about one third right away, then slowly open further as it warms up. It may be a small vacuum device that does the initial pull off.
If the flap does not open on start, then fully open when warm, that is the issue, causing your engine to run way too rich with gas.

Upon starting the 1995 Camry the engine dies. There is also grey smoke coming from the tail pipe. Checked the oil and there is no water in it.


Is it gray, bluish gray, or white? White smoke, during warm weather, indicates that you have a head gasket out and it's vaporizing water, it will look much like it does when you first start it on a cold day. Bluish gray indicates burning oil, which could be bad valve seating, severe engine wear on your piston rings and oil is blowing past them into the combustion chamber. Grey smoke is probably water as well, though it could be contaminated with oil, or the vehicle could be running too rich, getting too much gasoline. But typically this is more of a black smoke than gray.

I have a 1997 pontiac bonneville, it's running really rich (white smoke out of the tailpipe lightly) dies when it's at an idle. Changed the coil pack, no change.


If it is running really rich the color of the smoke out of the tailpipe would be dark grey or black. Some white smoke out of the tailpipe is normal in cooler weather until the vehicle engine warms up. Otherwise white smoke may be an indication of the engine burning coolant (cracked head, headgasket etc). I would take it to an auto parts store and have them scan the car's computer for codes. This is usually a free service. A code may be present even if the engine checklight is not on. A trouble code will make it easier to determine what is the cause of your problem. There are numerous things that can cause the problem you are having. Also knowing the mileage of the vehicle will help. Sorry that I am unable to help you more at this time.

Heap of white smoke on startup but not always


White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.
