Causes for isuzu 4jx1 vehicle's dark smoke


Oil burning or excess gas not being fully burned. If gas, smoke will be very black, whereas oil burning has a bluish tinge. If your engine runs good otherwise, it is probably oil burning. Most common cause of that is worn piston rings.

Grey blue smoke from exhaust it goes after a few miles what is it


Blue'ish smoke is caused by burning oil. Sounds like you have hardened valve stem seals. When they get hard, they allow oil to seep into the cylinders while it sits over night. When you start the car it takes a little while to burn out the oil. In the early stages once you are running it will seal up OK, but as time goes by it will begin to seep even while you are running. Using full synthetic may help the smoke because the synthetic oil will not burn. You can also go 10,000 miles between changes. (Watch your oil level though since you will not be changing every 3000).

Hope this helps.

Car is smoking when driving don't know what it is


Black smoke: Black smoke is often a result of too much fuel and not enough air in the combustion chamber. In rare cases, it can be weak fuel pressure causing fuel to 'drip' from injectors rather than 'spray'. It can also be caused by weak fire in the combustion chamber.

Gray smoke:
Gray smoke is caused by brake fluid. It generally means that your brake master cylinder is bad, and is getting sucked through the vacuum brake hose.

Blue smoke:
Blue smoke is generally caused by the burning of an oil in the combustion chamber. Normal causes of oil getting into the combustion chamber are weak piston rings, bad valve guides, bad valve seals, or plugged up engines where oil is sucked back through PCV system,usually due to lack of oil changes

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

1999 saturn sw has blue smoke coming from tailpipe. I would like to know if it has anything to do with head gasket


blue smoke is usually oil burning- is it light or heavy- if light- change oil and go up one grade- rings are worn- if heavy- time for a rebuild- rings need to be replaced. but for the money on rebuild- could find car newer and lower milage

White smoke from exaust


Hi,
When white smoke is spewing from your exhaust, it is usually an indication that something is burning. The typical culprit is a burning fluid from the vehicle, but other causes are possible.

Oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze are the three fluids most likely to be the cause of white smoke coming from your exhaust. Ruptured seals, leaky bolts and blown gaskets can expose oil to hot spots, making it burn. Pinholes or loose lines can cause antifreeze to spray on the engine, while transmission fluid can be sucked into the engine and burn


Here is a form of solution or prevention which can help you out;
Keep your fluids at the appropriate level and change them at the recommended intervals to reduce leaks and maintenance issues. Use the proper types of fluids as well. The wrong transmission fluid can cause your gears to stick and wear down, while the wrong oil can reduce lubrication on the engine and cause internal damage. Improper mixture or wrong type of antifreeze can cause overheating.


Good luck.

Burning smell and smoke coming from hood


you may have an oil leak and the oil is burning off of the hot exhaust or engine youll have to open the hood in order to decipher where the oil is coming from. or if its even oil it could be transmission fluid coolant a number of things youll have to see if you can tell exactly what it is thats leaking but my best guess is its probably oil.if it is oil its more than likely coming from the valve cover. id check there first.

Combo diesel engine blows blue smoke from only one cylinder,disconnected electric on each cylinder but smoked only on the same cylinder. Could it be the head gasket,leak from oil passage way. Should i try...


Blue smoke means that the cylinder is burning oil with gas/diesel. White smoke means that the engine is cold and excess fuel is being burnt. It means that the cylinder is having worn out rings.They need a change. Also check the engine oil level as well. It may be going low gradually.

Blue smoke


Chances are if you are blowing blue smoke, you are burning oil.  Another cause of blue tint smoke is you are burning to much fuel and not enough air.  If the engine does not act erratic or acts like it is flooding out, then I would say you are burning oil.  The most common problem found with burning oil is either worn piston rings, bad valve seats/seals.  If the engine has high mileage, I would recommend any type of oil treatment.  Change your oil, filter included, use some form of engine treatment, run it for a few hundred miles, and rechange your oil and filter again.  If your engine has over 100,000 miles, I would highly recommend using an oil that is made for high mileage engines.  As this oil has additives that will help ease the aging engine.  If this doesn't work for you, I would say you need to have the rings and valve seals replaced.  You can do this yourself with a little knowledge of engines and pick yourself up a Haynes Manual at your local auto parts store if you do not already have one.  Hope this helps.  Feel free to comment if you need more assistance.  Please don't forget to rate.  Thanks!

Sputtering during idle blue smoke


You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.
