Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Fiat Punto 1.2 2001 reg - thick white smoke coming out of the exhaust (smells pretty awful) when I press down on the gas. When I take my foot off the gas it still sounds like it's revving. Also, now when I brake there is a popping noise coming from the exhaust. Does anyone know what the above problems could be?

White smoke is coolant and sounds like a cracked head or bad head gasket.

SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust, smells like gas

Check the fuel pressure regulator. It should have a vacuum line attached to it - disconnect the vacuum line and turn the ignition on - if fuel come out then that's your problem. DON"T do this while the engine is hot or you could start a fire!

I would think this will be a blown turbo.

These are fed by a small oil pipe and if the unit overheats (due to wear) - this oil fill feed directly into either the inlet manifold - or the outlet - exhaust.
If it is spilling oil into the hot exhaust - you will get a thick white fog. You can confirm this by placing a clear glass bottle or jar in the exhaust stream - and see if it gets a thick coating of oil on it. If it evaporates - it's water, if not - or feels oily - new turbo or overhaul.

Best get is sortd sooner rather than later - as you may be able to save most of it for an overhaul rather than scrap it if badly worn.

HAVE SMALL OIL LEAK FROM TOP OF ENGINE BLOCK DRIPPING DOWN BY SIDE BLACK VERTICAL COVER TO CAM BELT/ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. SOMETIMES DROPS ON EXHAUST AND SMELLS. HAD ROCKER COVER GASKET REPLACED 15 MONTHS...


is that a typo
should it be 1996 FIAT PUNTO 55S

degrease the engine with off the shelf products

if leak is confirmed from the top of motor

redo rocker cover seal with silicon
see if that slows the leak
cam seals may not have been replaced when you thought they were

grating noise at belt could be idler bearing

oil leak onto exhaust and smoking
real engine seal . sump

White smoke is usually a sign of head gasket problems.Gas smell could be the unburnt fuel from the cylinder head which is the source of the problem.

Oil leak on a fiat punto 2001 1.2


Clean the engine block with a compressor and find out where the oil is coming from.
If there is no leak, and motor stays clean, then the oil is being combusted inside the engine, and you should get black smoke from exhaust. In this case it is time to a major repair to the engine.

Fiat punto


The fuel tank has lines that go out of it for different jobs. One of this plastic lines helps the gas fumes to breathe out in to the atmosphere throu a filter, so if this line is clogged for some reason no air can get out when you pump the gas in, so it spills it out. Locate this line and replace or unclogge it and hopefully this will cure you problem
