SOURCE: 97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.

Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

SOURCE: 2000 TDI - Lots of white smoke at cold start.

Sounds like your injection pump timing is off, an injector is leaking or a bad seal on your IP.
VW dealers have a horrible reputation when it comes to TDI's. Check out the posts over at www.tdiclub.com Those guys are very knowledgeable - and the first thing they'll tell you is don't take it to a dealer.
You can probably find someone in your area that has a copy of Vag-Com (scantool software that vw uses) software that could look at your timing. It definitely sounds like your dealer was throwing parts at your car because they didn't know what your problem is. If I were you, I'd copy and paste your post from here over at www.tdiclub.com

Mercedes c200 wont start lots of new parts white smoke comes out but says low pressure diesel rail replaced injector rail and two injector switches still wont start


WHITE SMOKE occurs when raw diesel comes through the exhaust completely intact and unburned. Some causes of this include
  • Faulty or damaged injectors
  • Incorrect injection timing (could be a worn timing gear or damaged crankshaft keyway).
  • Low cylinder compression (eg caused by leaking or broken valves, piston ring sticking, cylinder and/or ring wear, or cylinder glaze)

Hi there i have a 2006 ford focus and it keeps juddering when in third gear.iv had new leads n coil pack fitted recently.im wondering if it may be dirty fuel injectors.can you help!


Is the check engine light on? Read codes if possible. If it runs well and up to redline in 1st and 2nd, I doubt fuel injectors are the issue. Test fuel pressure and for clogged exhaust.

Hi to all.I am thinking of buying a 2nd hand 2013 Suzuki APV SGX 1.6l Automatic with 19,000km mileage only. Everything is tiptop but when the engine is on, very visible white smoke comes out from tailpipe...


Is this your first car, or first year driving in winter?
are you in USA or canada? (we are a USA forum here so???)
if yes, Suzuki is chapter 11, here and getting many parts are a PAIN.
big pain. dont buy SUzuki cars. , in N.America. bingo !
but my guess you are not here, in USA or N.America
but are far from here, right? km is canada or outside here.

and x2 never buy smoking engines.
(i do but for dirty cheap and fix em)

white smoke smells like burning smoke, RUN,, lingers.long time it does.
Fast dissipated smoke, (it's not smoke sorry!)
is steam it's normal all cars do that and more cold, weather. all fuels burns to water as a byproduct of combustion, but will smell like exhaust only. (carbon and exh. smell, all very normal)
but if the steam continues, and smells of antifreeze and nasty
sweet smel,l RUN.

buy a Nissan. or Honda. never any Suzuki ever.
the question is ,where next will they go bankrupt. hummmmmmmmmmm

While driving my dashboard displayed the warning sign for oil. the oil level was correct, but still it is rough on idle and makes a lot of smoke. how may i diagnose the problem?


Bummer deal! Rough idle and black smoke indicates a possible bad fuel injector leaking gas - or failing spark plugs. Bad or dirty injectors are a cause of sticky valves, and when sticky do cause rough idle and sometimes valve tapping - beside black smoke. Check those items first as they are most common failures. Rarely, a engine head sealing gasket may leak coolant into the motor to cause such problems. That would make a white steamy smoke. In that case it would overheat - did it? In this case, serious engine work, or a new engine is needed. I like the products at this web sites to end those issues. Hope this helps.

2000 CHEVY TRACKER **** AND SPUTTER IN LOWER GEARS. WHITE SMOKE FROM EXHAUST, BAD SMELL UNDER LOAD.


bad shift solenoid in transmission ,and white smoke is because you need head gasket,it is broken and you are mixing fuel with coolant,that will cause bad cat converter soon,and your engine will die soon due oil and water mix ,will kill your crank shaft and cam shaft bearing,(check your oil see if it look like milk shake,that is very bad)

My 95 Integra smoke at the start white smoke what is that five minutes later it goes away


White Smoke --usually a sign of a failed head gasket
or other issue, allowing coolant into the cylinder & a major
repair

White Smoke only on start up after sitting (Not Lasting 5 Min)
is raw fuel (gasoline) from leaking injectors, leaking fuel into
the cylinders

Injectors can fail,wear,leak or be dirty & NO you can not clean them

Forget the Genie in a Bottle The injectors have to come out & be
mailed away for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

That condition - the raw fuel- will over heat your exhaust converter
& ruin it as well as many other problems-lack of fuel control the
main one.

Sounds as if forward driving gears are shot. Different gears make vehicle move in reverse. I would ask if transmission fluid level when checked is in the operation range or full.

Citroen dispatch white smoke


That is bad news & a bad head gasket

White Smoke is coolant in exhaust

Why would you ask if that is normal?

Is that what you see following other vehicles?
