S320 smoking in gearbox after changing and fixing Exhaust pipes

I changed my exhaust pipe and the silencers but after completion of the job, after approximately 1hour of driving , smoke starts coming out from the gearbox section, as if something is burning inside...It was just a small smoke which lasted for 2hours continuously , no fire was seen. Thank You

If any electric welding was used on the car during the exhaust pipe work and the ground clamp wasn't in the proper location, there is a possability that your gearbox might have been damaged (fried).

SOURCE: white smoke mercedes benz 2008 gl-class 320

Seek out another mechanic. White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most of the time this is caused by a blown head gasket. A loss of coolant with no apparent leak, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, oil level overfull, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator are other symptoms of a blown gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you have this diagnosed and repaired. A compression test will verify this. Serious engine damage will occur if you indeed have an internal leak so make sure one way or the other.

SOURCE: AFTER OIL CHANGE MY ML350 OIL HI LIGHT IS ON AND WHITE SMOKE IS COMING FROM THE EXHAUST

They may have added too much oil -- a 2004 MB ml350 with a 3.7L engine should take only 8.5 Quarts (including what goes in the oil filter) -- Exactly 8.5 Quarts, no more, no less. You may be able do check the oil level by using the onboard computer - pushing the buttons on the steering wheel - follow the directions in the owners manual on how to check the oil level.

What is the peice of exhaust piped between the catalytic converter and the muffler called?


If you are reffering to what is in the picture below, the pipe between the Cat and the muffler is just simply exhaust pipe. BUT, the flanges on the ends of the pipe are called collectors. I hope this help and I will never visit London ;)

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.

Water is coming out from my tail exhaust pipe Ford Expedition 2003 4X4


When gasoline is burnt the products are carbon dioxide and water:- 2C8H18 (gasoline) + 25O2 (air) ----------> 18H2O (water) + 16CO2 (carbon dioxide) If you take short trips the water content will condense in the cold exhaust pipe and collect in the muffler boxes (silencers). At a certain point the water will fill the mufflers, overflow and begin to dribble out of the exhaust tail pipe. It is worthwhile to occasionally give your car a longer run to allow the exhaust to become sufficiently hot and to evaporate all the collected water. The water is acidic and hastens the corrosion of the exhaust pipes.

Blown exhaust on a vw passat can i fix it?


There is only one way to really fix a blown exaust and thats to replace it. It's not a bad job as long as you can get the car hi enough off the ground. You need a 14 mm wrench 13mm wrench WD40 14mm-13mm sockets and a swear jar for the kids so they make money!! Find out what part of the pipe is blowing by putting a potato over the end of the system with the car running. Perhaps you only need a small portion of the system.
