Firstly you haven't said hat colour of smoke is coming from rear is it black,white,or a blueish colour secondly have you checked suspension on rear possibilties are worn shox,broken springs,rear suspension bushes or rear drop links hope this is helpful.

    can you smell any burning oil inside car when driving also does it blow smoke all the time or when cold/hot now i have 3 possibilties whats wrong with your car with the colour of smoke coming from exhaust(blueish) sounds if you are burning oil don't know what mileage is on clock so i'm guessing here.

    1.could be valve stem oil seals that are worn

    2.seal in turbo could be worn causing to blow out of exhaust

    3.or piston rings could be worn these are just a educated guess not seen car i'm only advising most common problems.

I got a tata 407 turbo but the performance is poor it also smokes black and the fuel is black can some please help


Best I can tell this is a diesel truck? I know diesel, but
depending on age could be injectors, possibly Diesel injection pump hopefully not. The fuel is black? Someone is putting old engine lubricating oil in the fuel tank. It will increase the problem of black smoke. It may also have a bad smell because of the engine oil. If the turbo is not spinning properly (high pitched whine) the bearings may be bad and it's not getting enough air into the engine. This would also explain the smoke problem. Take it to a Diesel specialist!

Why the isuzu 2.5turbo diesel intercooler loose power and smokes when it warms up


what ISUZU what body? what year, and what country.
we cant guess all that?????? Injection system types vary by ALL THAT.
that can be lots of things
but the turbo , stops the smoke.. (adds air during times when old non turbo diesels smoked normally)
it could be a bad turbo or a leaking injectors
why not get a mech to service the car.? guessing will not work.

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,,,,
