Check around heads on top of engine. Water pump leak should be wet under neath. Possible head gasket or you could have crack in engine block. Check for any signs of wetness oround engine.

My guess is the brake is being applied by the ABS system due to a leaking hydraulic valve in the hydraulic control section of the ABS module.

Smoke coming out of engine


White smoke? Coolant is getting in the cylinder and the white smoke is really steam. Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Bad news is that it needs to be replaced...good news is that the inline 6 cylinder engine is one of the easier head gaskets to replace. I've never replaced a head gasket but did it on my Cherokee just three months ago. If you tag your parts and pay attention how they are taken off you can do it. The other option is to replace the engine as they are pretty cheap to get. Good luck.

Black smoking on idle


Your engine would smoke if you are running at too high RPM or have had your RPM at a high level before. The engine is getting overheated. When you say it only smokes until about one mile it sounds like a problem with the engine. starter.

I can't tell you anything specific but black smoke indicates incomplete burning such as not getting enough air or too much fuel. A quick check of the air filter wouldn't hurt but it's probably something else.

check your turbo again. also check whether the waste gate valve is working by testing it with vacuum tester.Or check if any flex hose on turbo or inlet manifold has not cracked or sheared and cause a leak and that is why you might have low power with lots of smoke.

Loud knocking in engine with white smoke


Hi Tracey P, sounds like you have a TERMINAL problem! If this noise and smoke symptoms came on suddenly while driving, and your performance is impaired, then I would suggest you might well have lost one cylinder dur to component failure. That might be a piston breaking up, a valve dropping or perhaps a combination of the two. I would seriously suggest that it's time to remove the cylinder head/s to check what exactly the problem is.

white smoke usually means blown head gaskets,have radiator fan checked,water pump,check coolant for oil in coolant,could be blown in between cylinders,causing coolant to go out exhaust,have compression check done on cylinders.
