You need to have your valve seals replaced, if it stops smoking when it warms up. Check around and find a reliable mechanic because this is not a job you want to tackle yourself. If I were you I would drive it and keep checking the oil because its not going to hurt any thing.

It is Starting to Burn Oil But, Very Little. Sometime Down the Road you will need to get the Rings in the Motor Replaced to Stop this Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Could the problem of white smoke when start up in morning be that the cold start sensor could be at fault


White smoke is actually normal Susan. It isn't smoke, it is steam.

White is steam
blue is oil
black is rich mixture

Gasoline contains water at molecular level, and when it burns it condenses through the cold exhaust system as steam vapour. You should find it disappears when the engine and exhaust is warm.

When i start my 84 toyota truck 22r i notice white smoke coming out of the exhaust...


If your not overheating or losing coolant, its more than likely engine oil burning. If it is coolant related, possible blown head gasket.

White smoke is usually coolant burning. Could have also been a large buildup of water/moisture in the exhaust.
How's the coolant level in the radiator ?

Hi. This is a common fault with m50/52/52tu engines. Engine is flooded because you did not warm it up. Must be out of blue on temp gauge be for you turn off.

White smoke, water vapor at initial start-up. drives a few miles, smokes again. could it be a vacuum regulator? 2001 jaguar s-type


Water vapor coming out of the exhaust at initial start-up is normal; that is condensation that collects when the engine is not running. White smoke at start-up depends on a couple of things. Tell me, where do you live? When the weather is very cold, all engines will emit steam (white smoke) when they are first running; this stops after the engine has been running a while and is warm.

In short, if this is only happening at first start of the morning and goes away over time, there is nothing wrong.

If, however, the "white smoke" continues and never stops, you may have a blown head gasket.

When truck gets warm it will not run over 45 mph


Puffing white smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket. Coolant is getting into the cylinders.
