You have several vacuum hoses this is the ideal place to start.
In particular there is a approx 15mm o/d hose coming of the inlet manifold check it for leaks.
It runs down between the intakae manifold and throttle bodies.

Sounds to me like the timing is out by maybe one tooth, that can cause the car to idol erraticly. ( think thats how its spelt) have you checked that the HT leads are in the right order of if one is damaged?

04 chevy impala has white smoke coming from the exhaust but no leaking


white smoke is caused by water or coolant entering cylinders, if in over flow it will look like a chocolate milk shake. check on oil dipstick to see if you can see traces of water or anti - freeze in the oil. if you see white smoke coming from tail pipe that smoke means that your car has a leaking cylinder-head gasket or a cracked head gasket. If there is just a leak in the gasket, the problem should be relatively easy and inexpensive to fix, but if the problem is a cracked head gasket, chances are the repair will be a lot more complicated and expensive. If the problem is a leaking head-gasket cylinder you will see white smoke, because the faulty gasket is allowing air and fuel to enter the cooling system. As this mixture burns, white smoke is produced and exits through your tailpipe. If you are familiar with the location of the cylinder head gasket you can check it yourself, otherwise take the car to your mechanic and ask him to check the gasket for damage. may not be but just check it out! if its water or anti-freeze, you will smell a sweet smell coming from tailpipe. good-day ! most of the costs today are labor which is very expensive.

2005 3.5l some times smokes oil then stops


Smoke oil? For what your thinking that is oil? Smoke coming from the tailpipe is not good news, but does not necessarily mean the engine needs rebuilding. First, you need to determine what color of smoke is coming from the tailpipe
* White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area.
* Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe.
* Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm.


If you confirm us that is oil smoke, check and keep in mind that the car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Keep us updated.

Smokes too much and does not respond to new spark plugs. what could be the matter/problem?


Too much oil in cylinders from old valve guides or rings. that fouls plugs and causes oil smoke in exhaust. it is 15 years old, they do not last forever, someone did not take real good care of it for its first 100,000 miles. look into buying a used, but much lower mileage, engine from a junkyard and paying someone to put it in. if it is a manual shift have the clutch redone at the same time.

Yes, check your electric fan for the radiatior. Either the sensor to turn it on is not working, a wire is broken, or the fan is defective. I had some problem on my Toyota but the fan blade was broken so the motor spun but did not good :(

My honda civic start normaly, but after few minute start losing power


Several causes possible.
Carburattor or injection type?
Carburator >> auto choke faulty.
Carburator >> mixture very wrong adjusted
Drawning carburator (needle/floater)
Distributor weights cannot move (dirt/rust spring broken)
Very dirty airfilter, or clogged airfilter
Faulty ignition cap. Check contacts, especially middle one if oldfashioned and nonelectronical.
Ignition timing set incorrectly.
Fuel pump broken.
Fuel filter blocked almost.
Vacuum line damaged.
Exhaust internally clogged by loose plate (corrossion) (potato in tailpipe effect).
And very seldom, water or diesel.

And a list of a lot of other things.

1993 honda prelude si 2.3 liters cuts off while driving


Smoking out the tailpipe is usually caused by worn rings, or really worn valve guide seals. (if it is an oil smoke) If it is a black smoke, it is running too rich, maybe an injector leaking or stuck open.
