I just bought a 95 Polaris magnum 425. It runs excellent with lots of power but smokes(burning oil smell) and knocks a little when accelerating. It doesn't knock at all idling and idles perfect.

SOURCE: Engine Knock on a 98 Isuzu Rodeo

Most likely it is a rod bearing and motor would have to be dissassembled to diagnose, you might want think about installing a low milege used replacment since it was run 5 quarts low on motor oil.

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

OK my 95 Chevy 1500 2wd 4.3 manual transmission, the truck runs fine never fails to start but seems to have a little loss of power but I'm also running 33 inch mud tires on it. it smokes a little out the...


the bigger tyres the more power it takes to turn them
You have very big tyres so suffer a loss of power
with extra power and the oil pressure falling, I would suspect worn big ends and main bearings especially with the smoking exhaust as under load of acceleration the extra clearance in the bearings is allowing extra oil onto the cylinders and the oil rings cannot cope.
exhaust system has no effect

Honda 5.5hp motor


Honda motors are 4 stroke motors so I would be checking if you have put 2 stroke mix in the fuel tank and that is the oil smoke problem. IF you are running straight petrol then there is a problem with the oil ring unless you have over filled the sump.

We have a 1990 Honda civic LX 5 speed. 4 door. We are getting about 20 miles to a gallon. Check engine light comes on after a few minutes of running. There is a strong exhaust smell at idle and black...


Try to give it a little time because you just did some work, it may need to burn out... but black smoke is an oil burning problem. even though the car will still run you dont want this problem because if oil is burning in your engine, it means oil is getting where it does not need to be witch HOPEFULLY, is just a gasket but you are not just burning fuel so it may be affecting your gas mileage!. it sounds like old gaskets!? maybe? gaskets are a **** to replace especially in a civic, and they are everywhere! i know i just took the whole engine apart and put it back together again in a 95.

As far as the heavy exhaust smell... may be a leak or crack in the manifold!

And as far as your sensors and dash lights go, save your money and dont replace any more! especially if you smell a problem and are getting only 20 miles to a gallon (especially in a honda) because the sensors are probably right!

95 volvo 850 burning oil. no leaks. How do i check the turbo seal or the the pcv system


Hi, I have a 1996 Volvo wagon 850 turbo. I just bought it and when you hold the rpm's at 3 and a half it was blowing out smoke after about 600 miles it stoped smelling like burning oil and doesn't blow out any smoke. But I use a court of oil in about every 150 miles. What could this be?
Thank's Jodie

Cannot find the carburettor - where is it please?


if it's a 2001 model it is fuel injected which means it doesn't have a carby. the white grey smoke is burning oil which means you might want to keep an eye on you're oil level but the strong smell of fuel and lack of acceleration could be caused by a fuel leak somewhere

Engine oil


It is not unusual for an older truck to be burning a little oil. It is burning very little so you will not smell burnt oil or see blue smoke in the exhaust. But the oil burn does add up and you may notice a drop on the oil dipstick after a few weeks. On a 9 year old truck under normal working conditions will burn a little oil. If you are having to add 1 liter between oil changes, that is ok, just shows normal engine ware. 2 Liters is acceptable between oil changes if the truck does a lot of heavy pulling or work. 3 or more liters indecates a problem, but at that rate, you should be able to smell oil and see blue smoke.
