    How do you check the O2 sensor?

  • farhanghz May 11, 2009

    I just bought it last week. Previous owner had it for 6 years and living in the country. I have taken it for drive in the highway (300k drive, 100k/hr). What's the best/cheapest way to check the o2 sensor?

Smokie when left engine running


If you're seeing blue smoke it's from oil burning and indicates bad valve guide seals. At idle the engine vacuum is high and sucks oil through the valve guides. If it's white smoke it's from burning coolant in the cylinders indicating a cracked head or leaking head gasket.

My 1993 ford Festiva W model is smoky at start up mostly first start for the day and fine through out the day guessing cause the engine is warm, I have since done a service including- engine cleaning detox...


white smoke could be steam from condensation in the exhaust or maybe valves? check your ignition timing maybe the black smoke caused by the car running to rich.

Blue smoke is oil

My Mazda starts rough and idles real rough with black smoke and smell of gas after warm runs great


Dear Smoker.......Sounds to a trained ear that this little guy is gonna need a fuel pressure regulator. It is basically dumping an excessive amount of fuel with the black smoke and all and once it gets warmed up it runs a little better cause it's out of the closed loop cycle. Check the fuel pressure regulator...pull the vacuum line off of it and if you can smell gas or see gas drippin out....that regulator is junk!!! The pressure regulator is on the fuel rail on top of the motor by the way...this should cure your woes.....if not..please get back to me... I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Hi i have a toyota estima lucida diesel and it chucks out smoke.


Is the smoke black-ish ?
It could be the fuel filters are dirty..

The oil cap might have the recomended oil on the top.. Or in your manuel..

To be sure - call you local discount auto parts store - and they will tell you..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Your turbocharger is leaking oil from the crankcase into the intake manifold. If you continue to run the engine it will deplete the crankcase oil to a point that will cause catastrophic engine failure. That is a technical term for "BLOWN" engine.
