Sound like you r 7.3 is leaking diesel pass the o rings, when the eng is shut off. overnight the fuel accumulates on top of the piston and when you start the truck in the morning, it will run rough until the fuel is burnt and the excess sent out the exhaust... ps. replace the injector o rings

Excessive white smoke from tail pipe


White smoke:

White smoke is caused by raw, un-burnt fuel passing into the exhaust stream. Common causes include:
·Incorrect fuel injection timing
·Defective fuel injectors
·Low cylinder compression

Low cylinder compression may be caused by leaking valves, sticking piston rings, ring wear, cylinder wear, or cylinder glaze. When white smoke occurs at cold start and then disappears as the engine warms up, the most common causes are fouling deposits around piston rings and/or cylinder glazing.
Continuous evidence of white smoke indicates a mechanical defect, or incorrect fuel timing.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

The oil in the engine is cream and is smoking


It's quite likely to be the head gasket, but here are a few cheaper possibilities to consider it's it's not overheating or suffering any great loss in power.

If it's a diesel, white smoke can be caused by unburnt diesel which could mean incorrect injector or valve timing or a leaking injector.

If it's petrol, have you driven in deep water? the cat could have water in it which also produces white 'smoke'.

I got white smoke, changed head and head gasket, intake gasket looked bad. My question is: can a bad intake gasket cause the white smoke?


Not on a Gas engine, but diesel engine yes.

Diesel engine white smoke means leaking head, intake, or your turbo is not working.

Gas engine leaking intake would only cause rough idle, no power, etc,,,,

I have a diesel engine that expells white smoke for 5 to 10 miniuts after start up? The exhaust also smells rich with fuel? I bought the truck used and am trying to fix the problems! Please help.


When an engine expels black smoke it means that the piston rings are going and is consuming oil. And when the color of smoke is white the engine is consuming more fuel. Both are harmful. Black to the engine and pocket while white to the pocket. It seems that the injector need careful attention.
Cold engine does expel white smoke initially. When the temperature rises to normal working temperature the smoke stops. This is normal in your case. 5 to 10 minutes to warm up is normal for any diesel engine. But any thing more than that needs attention.
