There are a number of things that can cause this condition. First, be sure the engine is properly tuned-up. Have the spark plug and plug wires been replaced? Distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter and oxygen sensor? Then scan PCM (computer) for fault codes. This will tell you if any engine control components have failed. Also check for vacuum leaks or bad vacuum hoses.

Why did white smoke begin spewing from exhaust as of today

It pours out black exhaust muffler


Black smoke is a sign of carbon and incomplete combustion. Too much gas is getting inside and constipating your engine.

If it is idling ok, then the anomaly is somewhere in the main jet metering system responsible for excessive gas going to combustion chamber.

My car keep blowing white smoke them randomly stopping sometimes no smoke and my coolaint is always low down


If youre wondering about a blown head gasket or cracked head, smell your exhaust. If it smells like anti freeze then youre right. If not, you have a coolant leak and your car is burning oil from one reason or another. Check your oil also. Usually when head gasket goes bad you will get water in the oil. The oil will start getting creamy after a while....if it looks like it has water in it, it probably does.

Carbon built up on sparkplugs on one side and truck seems to consume extra gas


That carbon buildup could also be unburned fuel - - depending on the make model and year it could be injector problems.

I have a jaguar x-type 2.0d. Sometimes when revving the engine hard, black smoke is blowing out the exhaust quite thickly. I think it might be the turbo. Can anybody shed any light on this for me?


Black smoke is usually carbon, blue oil, and white is steam. I would guess your car has a bad O2 sensor and has been running rich for quite a while.
