Hi Arelis,

It sounds like two different problems. White smoke is indicative of water in the fuel. If it was oil burning the smoke would be blue.

The oil may be leaking out. Is there evidence of oil leakage on the road when you park? Check the engine for for oil leaks.

There are additives available at auto parts stores that deal with water in the fuel supply.

Please feel free to contact me. More details will be needed to get to the source of the oil problem

SOURCE: Have Mazda bravo B2600 4WD ,has white smoke &

You dont say weather its a petrol or diesel engine as there a slight differance in the answer and if a turbo on a diesel thats even more of a differance, but taking it a petrol .
Well to start with the white smoke Isent smoke its water and after going through the engine it turns into Steam and thats what you see..
Running on 3 clyinders is caused through 1 cylinder isent working as a engine should and has a bad valve or a broken piston ring or more and even a cracked head and gasket letting the water through,,,also the broken ring works like a oil pump as if not firing given you power then it works like a oil pump and pumps it into the cylinder that dosent work only pumping oil into the hot exhaust system while running.CAUSING SMOKE
And if a turbo then could be the turbo bearings worn and pushing oil into the engine and still doing the same as before.
Let me know how you get on. RON

It probably has some internal engine damage. If you pull the spark plugs one or more will probably be oil fouled.
You may want to have a compression test done and see if you can find the source of the oil - may be a head gasket.

White smoke coming from engine and exaust.


I'd have to see it in person. A small amount of coolant in the cylinders can make a big cloud of white smoke. So a head gasket or intake gasket could be leaking but yet be tough to find. If you start loosing coolant you'll know. Meanwhile I would probably not drive it very far from home for a few days/weeks.
Keep in mind, if it is very cold where you are, regular water in the exhaust is going to cause "fog" out the exhaust.

My mazda 626 has a strong potent smell coming from the exhaust


You don't mention what that smell is reminiscent of?

You don't mention the colour of the "smoke" and you didn't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel?

You don't mention whether the road behaviour/performance is normal?

White smoke is almost always steam or in the case of a diesel it could be an unburned fuel mist, grey/black is excess fuel and blue or grey/blue is burning oil.

Some steam is fairly normal until the engine and exhaust system is hot but excessive amounts could be one symptom of head gasket trouble. If the engine is drinking coolant and sending it through the exhaust as steam it will sometimes smell spicy.

Burning oil smells a bit like burned eggs in the frying pan.

If the car hasn't ultra-low sulphur oil and fuel the catalytic converter will convert sulphur traces into hydrogen sulphide - the bad egg gas...

I have a 98 mazda 626 only when its cold i have like a blue gray or even white smoke coming from the exhaust don't know what it could be?


Your exhaust valves have deposits on them that don't allow for a good seal when the engine is cold, or your piston rings are worn, allowing oil to get past when the engine is cold. In either case the seals improve as the engine warms, making the smoke go away. You can try to see if an oil additive will improve your situation.

My Toyota Corolla XL 1996 model is belching heavy white smoke. I have just changed the oil and also the spark plug. What do you think is the problem?


white smoke usually indicates the engine is burning oil or its burning coolant. when the engine is cold remove the radiator cap and start the vehicle, if it immediately begins to blow air and or coolant from the radiator you most likely have a blown head gasket, if not then remove the oil cap and feel for air coming out. if it blows kinda like a hair dryer then you most likely have a piston ring issue and you are burning oil. either way you may be looking at major surgery to repair.

Theres was smoke coming from the exhaust and engine


if you have white smoke in your exhaust, you have a blown headgasket, and if you 626 is turbo'd and depending to the tubo is cooled eg antireeze, then coolant could be leaking out that way too. also it would be helpfull to know what the steam is coming from. BUT since you mentioned that is coming from the exhaust, it woud wager that its a blown head gasket. you can veryfi this a number of way. take out your spark plugs one at a time and have a look at them. if a couple look "too clean" or seam to "steam cleaned" compared to the other ones = lack carbon build up etc, then the plug that you took out is the cylinder where the engine coolant is leaking into. also, you can do a compression test = which ever cyclinders are super low = blown gasket is located on that cylinder. PS if you do have a blown head gasket, you should replace your oxygen sensor as well because the glycol in the antifreeze wrecks the O2 sensor.

On start up I get lots of white smoke this lasts until car warms to normal operating temperature, car is using a little oil have noticed oil spitting from exhaust, no obvious sign that the head, head...


Stage one of a blown head gasket is a pin hole leak. As time goes by the hole(s) get bigger.
I will start traking the coolant lost and oil lose.
From the time you stop your engine to the next morning,there can be slow leakage between the coolant passage and the cyclinder end of the head gasket.
This is one possiblilty of lots of white smoke in AM.
Small amount is normal but large amount of smoke is a call for a professional check up.
To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1997,with over 110,000 then blowning headgasket is a good possiblity.
Drive it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.
