SOURCE: engine lost power then stopped

Check your radiator and see if you have oil in it by what you are describing it sounds like you got it to hot and possibly blew a head gasket.....this vehicle has a low indicator oil switch if your lucky and havent blown gasket try adding oil to required level and then start this will also confirm if head gasket is blown by the presence of the oil lookin like coffee with alot of cream....Good Luck...Please rate so it helps with future diagnostics .....Thank you

SOURCE: 1998 leganza motor smokes when it warms up

If the smoke is white, or steam it is water. you might have cracked the head or warped it. Did you get it looked at before you put the new gasket on? If the smoke is black then it is oil. Do a compression check and see if you don't have a bad cylinder. They should all be about the same give or take 5 lbs.

Same senerio as earlier, with the new tbi, all new sensors, truck sits ideling black smoke!! Fumes will burn your eyes sittn in cab!!


black smoke is incomplete fuel burn in the combustion process
the burning eyes is the resultant noxious oxides that form from that incomplete combustion
causes ==
possible turbo failure (if fitted) incorrect air/fuel ratio
faulty injector tips --not atomizing properly
blocked air filter
faulty injector pump--overfueling

What could be the cause of rough idle, smoke, engine cut off while driving in my vw golf mk4. All of a sudden it happened. I replaced the spark plugs, filter elements, and cleaned the throttle, to no...


What color is the smoke? White smoke is oil burning, black is fuel. There are a dozen things that could cause the symptoms you describe. Faulty fuel pump, dirty injectors, ignition system fault, cracked cylinder head, bad fuel, faulty engine sensor (MAP, OXY) etc. Really need to find a mechanic who can look at it in person.

White smoke from vw bora


if it does it all the time, could be antifreeze being burned off from a leak into the engine. this would need to be seen by a mechanic. unless it is just when you first start it on a cold or cool day and stops after the engine warms up. thats normal condensation burning off the pipes -
rule of thumb with smoke. bluish color means burning oil, black smoke - fuel exchange is off and is not combusting correctly, white antifreeze.

My vw golf 4 2.0l won't rave but idles roughly


check spark plugs and distributor. look for bad wear and missing parts. It must be a faulty spark plug which is not igniting fuel in one cylinder. If you decide to replace the plugs its best to change all of them.

VW Golf 4 2.0 highline. Car takes time to start up and when it eventully does, grey smoke comes out that smells like petrol. When driving, car loses power and it makes a sound like a diesel car.


You more than likely have a bad coil pack, wire, or plug. Check each spark plug (its a 5/8" Spark Plug Socket), make sure they all look OK. The bad one should be completely black, if it really is fuel. If they all look the same, try pulling each spark plug wire off one at a time, putting it back on if you find it makes a big difference in how the car idles. Once you find one that doesn't affect the idle, you found your culprit. Try swapping with another cylinder and see if the problem moves cylinders. If it stays on the original cylinder, the problem is likely your coil pack. If it moves cylinders, you need new spark plug wires. Always replace the spark plugs when you replace the wires as well.

Why want 6.0 blow black smoke with banks 6 gun iq


Black smoke from a diesel is caused by overfueling, even with a banks the engine obviously is burning the fuel efficiently. Black smoke will not make your truck produce more power, i am not sure why you would want this to happen anyway.

Black smoke coming out of exhaust of a 05 VW Golf S SDi


Sounds like a bad MAP sensor. This will cause the same problems. Possibly an oxygen sensor not switching properly also.

My car completely shut down


If the cigar lighter is starting to smoke then there must be short in it somewhere. I would disconnect cigar lighter and see if that makes any difference.
If it does then replace the cigar lighter.
