Check the oil make sure that the water is not mixing with the oil. Smoke and losing water is a tale tale sign of a blown head gasket

My Toyota Camry 1999 emits black smoke and the slope often goes below 1 and car stops by itself. What is the cause and hoe do I rectify the probs?Also my radiator gets dry daily. I have to add water to the...


I'm unfamiliar with the term "slope" but since you have black smoke and low water I'm willing to bet you're dealing with a leakage of water into your cylinder and/or elsewhere. Do you see water shooting out of the tail pipe when you start it in the morning? If so you have a bad head gasket / crack in your cylinder wall or both. If you seen no water there check your oil to see if there is water in your oil, if none there then it could be an air idle mixture and a leaking radiator or water plug, (not likely but possible).

2002 toyotal smoking white and rough starting


Check trans. fluid level while engine is hot and running, Check it twice to be sure that the level is full. The white smoke could be something all together different like a blown head gasket. check to see if water is mixing with the iol by looking at the oil fill cap, if you see bubbles and a whitish milky looking color under the cap.

Antifreeze smell and smoke coming out of vents


You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.

Its runnining close to hot on temp gauge and after i parked it from driving home fom work i saw some smoke coming from under the hood


If smoke, you may have a leak in a hose. When cool, check for water marks usually coming from the connection to the radiator. Another thing to do but may be dangerous is to load up the radiator with water and start the engine, let it run for about 15min for it to heat up and look for water spray. Also, when parked, is there a puddle of water under the car?

Also, I would check the water level in the radiator (never open when hot), to see if i need to add water. Don't look at the reservoir as a reference. It could be just low.

The key here is you think there may be smoke coming from the hood.

Another thing, if the radiator is full of water, then it could be your thermostat. it is usually located at the end of the top hose which runs from the radiator to the engine. In this picture, you are looking at the top of the engine looking down. This is the location of the Thermostat. If your vehicle is close to over heating, this valve could be getting stuck.

As a test, remove the thermostat and try driving it around to see if it gets close to overheating.
