Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
Blows heaps white smoke on cold startup. if accel not touched it sometimes doesnt happen. regardless, it stops when engine is warmed up. recently had headgasket done. inlet manifold coolant leak ? (daihatsu sirion 1 ltr )
White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the
fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically
produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the
exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.
Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.
Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.
If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.
Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.
