White smoke from BMW 740i exhaust


white were? the exhaust tip, or other spot, long pipe, name spot?
white, is steam or OIL.
oil smells like burnt oil and takes for ever to dispate
steam is water, and smells , sweet due to 50% glycol inside.
and goes away fast.
but all Gas engines make water at all the time running as a by product of combustion and for sure on cold days, some times full time cold
due to climate effects.
does your neighbors car smoke at same time, (look)
bingo , dew point.

all gas engine smoke cold started, (steam)

so first find out what it is,
take the dip stick out of a hot engine. stalled, drip it on the exhaust
see that smoke ,smell it? that is burning oil
now you know what you have, steam or oil. smoke.

1997 Villager gas smell when outside temperatures are hot and vehicle has been driven.


A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.

Has a gas smell


I'm going to assume you do not see gas on the ground.
In hot weather, you may smell gas when the tank is venting.
On Villagers especially in cold weather, the clamp can become loose on the rubber fuel line at the injector rail.

My 99 Villager has a reaccuring idle problem. After warming up and a few miles of driving the idle will sputter at a red light and sometimes stall. I recently got a tune up but the problem still remains....


Buy a 1 gallon fuel can, and when it does it again, turn it off (if it has'n yet) pour the gas inside the gas tank and try to turn it again, if it does start right away, it may be a bad fuel pump, this because after a time it gets hot and looses power, the cold gas will cool it down and make it work again... Good luck

Gas smell inside a car


I purchased a 93 Villager in 1999 and it developed a gasoline smell inside. The problem was the fuel filler hose / pipe that was covered by a manufacturer's recall. It was repaired by the Mercury dealer at no cost to me. You should contact the local Mercury dealer. This year Villager also had a problem with the crankshaft breaking, although they never had a recall for that problem, the crankshaft diameter was increased for the 94 and newer models.
