    Blue smoke means that you are burning oil.

SOURCE: smoking at higher rpms

Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.

If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.

2004 dodge durango 5.7 hemi runs real rough white smoke comes out then blows oil cap off.


Ah oh..white smoke is water in the cylinder and cap blowing off is compressed air in the crank case..sounds like you have a blown head gasket or intake or both...have your radiator and block pressure tested..if gasket is leaking it will fail to hold pressure.. Check your oil for water sometimes a bad intake gasket will let water in the oil.good luck..

Saab 9-3 diesel 120, My turbo charger is load and whe given a bit of throttle 2 overtake ect.. lots of black smoke piles out the back and sometimes e turbo will stop workin untill u tur the car of and back...


The turbo will not cause black smoke. White smoke, yes, if its passing oil into the engine, but not black.
First check that the air intake and filter is not blocked, check that the air hoses from the turbo and intercooler are not collapsing when given throttle.if thats ok, then get the injectors tested, if they are ok then you need to get the injection pump serviced. Black smoke is a result of overfuelling, either by the poor dispersal of fuel from the injectors or the pump, or blockage of air into the engine on the intake system.
Hope that helps

Smoking


This is a good indication that your valbe seals are starting to wear. The other posibility, you pcv vavle needs replacement. Either way, at higher speeds these can be an early warning sign. I don't know how many miles your truck has. Check the pcv first as it is an easy fix. If your crankcase is not venting,(releasing presure), it can cause smoke. Hope this helps.
