That is probably the head gasket leaking. White smoke is from antifreeze going through the exhaust. The engine compression is pushing the water out of the radiator.

SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating

I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

SOURCE: ford f350 overheating

I have a 2005 F350 and mine was doing the same thing. We changed everything including replacing a new factory overflow cap. Finally, we found that the head gasket was leaking causing the engine to overheat but also I was loosing a ton of horsepower. We rebuilt the engine from the head gasket and new heads all the way to the top of the engine. We replaced the head bolts with new head studs and it feels like a new truck. More horsepower and it pulls like the beast that it was meant to be. Hopefully, this helps good luck.

Blowing blue smoke is NOT an issue with the turbo, it is an issue with either piston rings or valve guides. You need an engine overhaul.

Engines idle goes up and down after warming up and blows blue smoke


If the engine idles for a while then blows blue smoke this is an indication of oil passing the valve stem seals and being burnt in the combustion process. ( When you are at lights and they change and you accelerate away leacing a cloud of blue smoke this is worn valve guides and failed valve stem seals) As for the idle it could be the oxygen sensor is coated with oil and soot and is malfunctioning henace the cpu cannot regulate the fuel setting correctly. Have the valve seals replaced and clean the Oxygen sensor and check for other fault codes

My Ford Transit 2 ton van blows blue smoke when I accelerate after long idling (on red light or so


if your van has plenty of miles on it this is quite normal on acceleration most diesels have this problem.if the smoke is excessive and doesnt clear then your burning oil and the oil rings on the pistons have failed check to see if your oil level is right or it may have been over filled this can cause the motor to burn oil .good luck mike.

My car is blowing smoke and shuddering ef falcon


What color is the smoke ? is it bluish or is it white ?
The blue colored smoke would smell more like burning oil, which would indicate a broken piston ring, ect. the white smoke if it smells of coolant(anti-freeze) would lean toward a head gasket problem.

Susuki baleno 4cyl 1.6l blowing smoke


It sounds like a piston oil ring is broken considering the valve stem guides and seals have been done, oil is definately getting into the combustion chamber there are only two places that can happen through the valves or through the rings, black smoke is always too much gas, blue smoke is always to much oil in combustion chamber. Hope this helps even though it's not the best news.
