My 1992 nissan terrano blows to much black smoke .how to fix this .some say i have unbirt fuel?


if diesel and turbo , check turbo operation of for holes in the intercooler
if turbo or naturally aspirated check/ replace injector tips as black smoke indicators squirting and not atomizing
if petrol check for excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors , leaking injector seal
regardless of petrol or diesel --black smoke indicates incorrect air / fuel ratio ( too much fuel) so injectors, intercooler, bad turbo or blocked air cleaner are all candidates for the fault

Blown head gasket. Pull the spark plugs. The cleanest one is where it is blowing or sucking coolant. Sorry. White is water/coolant. black is gas. bluish is oil.

Engine runs flat blowing blue smoke


Blue smoke from the exhaust of a petrol engined vehicle is a sign of the engine burning oil. It could be a number of things- broken/worn piston rings. worn valve guides or even a holed piston. It could also be burning transmission fluid if it has an automatic gearbox. Take it to a mechanic and get it looked at by a professional, it will be cheaper than buying a new engine or car.

Stem seals replaced. still smoke from exhaust after sitting all night ok after warm up


Could be left over residue burning itself out. Could be the seal is not properly seated and it starts to smoke then after it warms up the seal heats up and forms a better seat by seating itself. Give it a few days and if problems consists reapply the seal and tighten all bolts evenly at a little at a time

White smoke petrol 1.4 renault clio.not stem


White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.



It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
