Changed O2 sensors and white smoke starts pouring out of exhaust

White smoke is usually steam which would indicate a blown head gasket or crack in block. Hope it's something easier.

1992 nissan maxima, hard start,runs fine until it starts puffing white smoke then its gutles as hell and wants to stall,before when i attempted to start it,it would sound like it would backfire or...

if it is puffing white smoke,you have lost a piston ring or broke it.the white smoke is coming from oil burning around the piston.your hard strating is due to the fact that you are loosing compreshion in the motor.take it into a mech.and have them run compreshion test on it.GOOD LUCK pretty spendy!

Black smoke and bad fuel consumption what is the problem? Oh it an 07is volvo s40 20d

Hi there: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. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor.
How did the fuel get into the cylinder in the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and advise him of what you have found.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My mileage is over 130,000 ansd my car smokes when i drive it. It's white smoke. What's wrong with my car?

white smoke means water or antifreeze. blue smoke means oil. black smoke means rich fuel mixture. So if it is white you are burning antifreeze which usually means you have a bad head gasket or intake manifold gasket. is your car over heating? that is the main symptom of a bad head gasket. how much white smoke are you getting if it is not much it could be just condensation and nothing to worry about.

do you see white smoke sounds like 02 sensor, or a broken fuel line, be careful of that very bad for exposure, toxic, most places wont have to run a test, if you say you smell gas, they or most will look and see.
