    Thank for info will check coolant level. With out removing valve covers hard to see valve seals. Might invest in a bore scope. thanks for your epinions.

    How about valve stem seals ?. Plastic/rubber seals dry out and gets hard. Poor oil sealing till they warm up a bit. I would hope the cylinder head oil drains are clear, not causing puddling aroung the valve stems on shut down. Many possible causes, some of the common ones. Hope this helps

Well if it is only smoking when you first start it and it clears up after the engine warms up the first thing you need to check is your coolant level could be head gaskets

2002 Ford Excursion 7.3 4x4 rear brakes getting smoking hot. Noticed it on driver side first. Assumed the rotor was sticking, replaced it and the hose. Relaxed pads and found the pads on passenger side...


There are a number of issues that can cause overheating disc brakes. Disc brakes, when released, separate from the disc by the action of the rotor moving between them (since no rotor is perfectly true, there is a small about of wobble and it pushes the pads away from the rotor surface). Things that can cause this to go wrong are:

  1. Caliper pistons that have rust rings that cause sticking. This most often will happen right after or shortly after replacing old, work out pads with new ones. Because the caliper piston was extended out farther with the worn pads, its surface may get rusty. This rust can cause sticking when the piston is pushed back into the bore with the new, thicker pads.
  2. Caliper slide bolts will rust and get sticky, not allowing the caliper to release properly and re-center itself on the rotor. What you often see here is that one pad (inner or outer) is totally worn out and the other seems normal.
  3. Rusty brake lines/caliper internals can cause restrictions in the flow of brake fluid and hold pressure after the brake pedal is released.
It is highly recommended that whenever you change your brake pads, you replace the caliper slide bolts use a new brake hardware kit when reinstalling. The additional cost is almost always saved in longer brake pad life, and fewer complications.

1987 Bronco smokes


I dont know why those other answers are assuming you have a diesel engine. Try a compression test to see if you have a broken or stuck ring on a piston. Also look at the carb to see if the choke if staying wide open.

2004 ford excursion 6.0 was running ruff and blowing black smoke. now wont start


Usually a sign of a faulty fuel pressure regulator or injector. Someone will need to check the plugs to see if they are fuel-fouled and where the excess fuel is coming from. Since this engine has an injector for each cylinder I doubt it is a faulty injector but something could be grounding all of them at one time.

2004 Excursion 6.0 diesel blows intermitent white smoke


I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

Oil consumptiom


Figuring off of national standards thata gasoline engine is allowed to burn 1qt. of oil every 2,000 miles tthey would be correct.But That is not to say for that particular engine providing that oil has been changed every 3000 miles,There could be other problems contributing to your car,for instance cklogged pcv valve,leaking injectors or fuel preasure regulator both can cause fuel contamination to engine oil (Dillution) Thins oil too much,or overheat condition,or failed cat convertor.With this in mind talk with another Nissan dealer if only by Phone.

2004 f 250 diesel smokeing and losing power


Is the check engine light on? Any more specific info like year, make, model, what color the smoke is, how many miles, etc........ This could help to narrow down the problem other than the smoke which all diesels do with quick acceleration. You might get a quicker answer if you are more detailed!
