Normally, the oil is checked with the motor off. You won't get a true reading while the motor is running. The automatic transmission is checked with the motor running, usually in park.

My 2008 H3 hummer seems to being oil. My service temp light comes on and temperature gage starts to rise. It also is giving off smell like burning rubber and at times smells like rotten eggs. What wou

Rotten egg smell is your cateladic converter... part of your exhaust pipe... should go away in a month.... the smoke coming from your oil is natural... as the oil heats up it can smoke a little... kind of a wisp... anymore then that you should get it checked.... park the rig on a large white sheet and check in a day for oil spots, if you see some isolate the area, a lot of times it can come from a loose oil filter, or oil plug but some times it comes from a worn seal. also check that the pvc valve isn't worn.... then if they are all ok I would be thinking the engine is burning it is important to use the right weight of oil for the temperature... too thin burns off, too thick over works the oil pump and rings on the piston. stay away from the cleaners unless you are changing the oil, I use a product called sea foam personally. Good luck

Smoke from a side pipe

Leaking exhaust pipes and deflated radiator can be the result of this. Better start with the radiator first and check if its deflated. Also make sure the pipes are tightly mounted and double check any leak.

Overheating problem, slight knocking coming from motor, small amount of whiteish smoke from exhaust

Ok stop leak is a gimmick, im thinking you plugged your radiator up with it, if you are blowing white smoke out the tail pipe chances are blown head gasket from overheating, either way the t-stat should be replaced in doing either job. Chances are the heater core will be plugged too.

White smoke= Water/coolant in combustion chamber
Blue smoke= Oil in combustion chamber
Black smoke= excessive fuel in combustion chamber

Oil is dripping and touchin the exhaust pipe under the car making smoke could I drve my car until I get it fixed?

Whenever oil is getting on the exhaust the possibility of a fire can be fairly high, the amount of oil is key, if you just get a little puff of smoke now and then while driving you should be ok until you can find time or money to get it fixed, if it is really smoking allot then you shouldn't drive it.

My oil light has started to flicker and when driving im starting to gt a rattle noise. this goes away if i press the accelerator and returns when i take my foot off it....any ideas?

1st check the oil, if the oil level is ok then you will need to install a manual oil pressure gage to get an actual reading on the oil pressure, i think you will need an oil pump, the rattle is the valve train running low on oil pressure. you need to get this checked NOW don't drive the car until you have this checked or you might need more than just a pump. the new pump would much cheaper than an engine.

We recently did an oil change on my car and then we went to drive it and it seemed like smoke was coming out of the exhaust pipe

Keep an eye on your oil level, but I suspect when you did oil change "someone" spilled old oil on an exhaust pipe. It happens all the time. But for peace of mind, check your oil level to make sure there isn't a leak.

White smoke out the tail pipe

Most times white smoke out exhaust is an indication of leaking or blown head gasket Might be an area to start looking.

White smoke cuming out tailpipe 3400 v6

I would almost bet you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. White smoke at the exhaust, loosing coolant, moisture on the underside of the oil fill cap, and on the dip stick are all signs of a blown gasket. The fact that there is no coolant in the oil does not mean it does not have a blown gasket. To find out for sure remove all spark plugs, disconnect the coil wire, and then run a compression test on all cylinders. If you find one or more with low compression you have a blown gasket. Do not drive this car any longer until you get this repaired. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive it.

Smoke coming from exhaust pipe

It sounds like you have an oil leak. The head gasget may not be blown, but if there is a leak in the oil system the exaust will be smokey from burning the oil. Keep an eye on the oil level and it appears to be lower than normal, then thats probably the problem.
