Almost sound like the problem is a head gasket. Is the oil a milky color? if so that is water in the oil and you have blown a head gasket.

HI you could do a oil pressure test whit a gauge or yest replace your oil pressure sending unite if engine is not making tapping sound when pressure reads low it may be a bad pressure switch.now the coolant problem may be bad intake gaskets look at 4 corners of intake for sign of coolant if you see it outside its probably getting inside your lifter valley.Hope this helpsb58809b.gif

SOURCE: OIL PRESSUE LOW

At some point, your engine is registering low oil pressure and warning you the oil pressure is insufficient to lubricate the engine properly.

How does the engine know this? What causes it? Excellent questions. The engine 'knows' this because there is one or more sensors that read the oil pressure all the time. The sensors report to the computer which reports to you. They could be faulty. On the other hand, there could be times when oil pressure IS low. Your oil pump may be mal-functioning. Normally, I would expect the oil pump to either do its job properly or NOT do it properly but not act intermittently. It may warrant being checked by a professional. Another reason for this condition could be the oil itself, though you report you just had it changed. Presumably, whom ever did the change put in the proper oil grade, service and weight, recommended by GM.

Another thought, is this warning seen by you immediately after you start the car? If yes, it is normal for oil to take a second or two to build the proper pressure, particularly in cold weather. Where I am at, it is cold. Oil doesn't like to move when it is cold (like me) so it takes a bit of time to get up pressure (like me).

If this continues, you may want to have this problem looked at by a professional, as I said.

I have a gmc 2005 envoy and i believe its to full in oil cause its coming out through the top the black thing is full of oil


Hi, I am a 3rd year apprentice 310s auto service technician. You are more than likely correct about your oil level being to high. During vehicle operation gases are produced inside the crankcase. For efficiency and emissions purposes a system is in place that routes these gases through the valve covers, through a hose and back into the intake manifold or air cleaner assembly. The photograph you took is of the post filter section your air cleaner assembly. If there is too much oil in the vehicle it will pool under the valve covers and trickle into the flow of gases being routed back into the intake, you'll likely be experiencing some thicker exhaust smoke especially during acceleration. I would suggest draining all your vehicles oil and removing and draining the oil filter, then refill with the specified amount found in your owners manual; you can catch and re-use the oil. Remove and clean your intake assembly as well. Now go for a quick drive on the highway to burn any oil you may not have cleaned out. Contact me if you need more specific instruction.

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.

Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.

Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.

Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

Hi. I have a 2006 Toyota Hilux with a 3.0 litre D4D diesel engine. It blows out blue oil smoke for about five seconds on startup. If I perk the car on an upward facing smoke the problem is worse. If I park...


Hi , couple of questions,
1. is it using engine oil?
2. What type of diesel fuel do you burn ?(cheap/premium)
3. Have you ever used fuel additives ?
4. Does the smoke go away after warm up or still there when you put car under load / accelerate hard?

Simple thing first with the engine ticking over lift bonnet/hood and remove the dipstick, have someone lightly rev the engine LIGHTY if you see oil traveling up the dipstick spout , this is a sign of the crankcase pressurising , their is a crankcase breather filter which are obtain overlooked during servicing which can cause e
If you are not burning oil , look for the egr valve it will be coming off the air intake and insure it is clean and operational( this is an emission saving device fitted to diesels which lets the engine re -burn it exhaust gases) it can get clogged with oily residue from the diesel fuel and in fact can be like a tar consistency this clogs/ not functioning correctly can cause power loss and oil deposits making their way into the exhaust system and stops valves seating correctly . On positive it is easy to work at and clean with brake cleaner, then dry and lightly oil to free up then wipe clean.

also worth while and to ensure work on egr was worth while and lasts remove the air intake ducts as these too will be clogged it builds up over time and can reduce the air duct flow by50% this is not cleaned during ordinary servicing! clean with boiling water and washing up liquid sounds strange but worked best for me! Let sit to work using baby bottle /pipe cleaners when clean ensure it is dry completely before refitting I found blowing out with compressor was worth while as you do not want and loose dirt inside as I will make its way through.

final thought which has been very beneficial for me, when carried out the above use only premium fuel( cheaper fuel now is mixed with bio diesel and leaves bad engine deposits ) use diesel fuel additive I have found millers Eco max 4 excellent, double dose first time drive hard in 3rd for a few miles to work its way though you will notice smoke for the first couple of used this is contamination working through system. Let me know how you get on and good luck.

What does it mean if there is oil in my coolant reservoir


oil too low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have some change your oil & filter immediately !!! drain radiator & coolant reservoir , refill w/ fresh 50/50 coolant , white smoke is not exactly a good thing ! it could mean coolant is mixing w/ oil , because of a possible leak from a bad gasket either from intake manifold or head gasket !!! water pump would not cause this ! I would bet on a gasket leak given the age of the car . 2000 ! 13 years old, how was it maintained, intake gaskets are cheaply made, head gaskets are made well ! so, my bet, goes to the intake manifold gasket !!!!!!good luck kristle !

Oil in air intake and throttle body


The oil in the intake is likely coming from the pcv valve- blowby. This oil shouldn't cause any stalling problem although it can give some blue colored smoke from the exhaust. A car that runs is worth fixing.

Why is my car's exaust giving out white smoke even when the heat or air is off?


THe heat and air has nothing to do with the exhaust, It is either burning rich, burn your eyes? Or it is blowing steam out from a blown head gasket, check the top of the radiator for oil an check the oil for water. A radiator shop can do a comp check, do not let it over heat, it could go months before finally stop running. Check again and make sure it isn't a blueish smoke, It would be oil. Whole different story.

MY SUZUKI GET TOO MUCH WHITE SMOKE,BUT I HAVE PUT ENGIN FLUSH, CHANGE THE OIL AND THE OIL FILTER,ADD ANTISMOKE TO FUEL BUT NO CHANGES PLEASE!!!


There has been an issue of Suzuki engines smoking due to the PCV. valve or the baffles under the valve cover. One method of curing this is to place an oil separator between the vacuum line from the intake and the PCV. This will make for the need to keep an eye on it as it will fill up with oil eventually thus negating the purpose of placing it there in the first place. I think the big fix would be to remove the valve cover and check the oil baffles and filter therein. The problem is that oil builds up at the location of the PCV and is getting sucked into the intake via the vacuum hose to the intake. The quick fix? unplug the PCV and plug up the vacuum hose to the intake. This will get you by until you can get it to a mechanic. Anyway, That what I know. hope it helps

White smoke exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....
