White smoke is usually coolant burning. Could have also been a large buildup of water/moisture in the exhaust.
How's the coolant level in the radiator ?

SOURCE: 97 Honda Civic shakes at start and check eng light comes on.

It looks like misfiring in one cylinder. That is why check engine come on. Misfiring can be due to spark plugs/wiring/worn distributor cap. Maybe also vaccum leak and clogged injectors (use injector cleaner).

My fiat scudo has loss of power when I start it in the morning it gives white n blue smoke after 15 minutes it's back to normal can any1 help


Sounds like a bad seal of some sort, heavy white smoke indicates coolant entering the cylinder heads while bluish smoke is oil burning. It could be that itgoes away when it heats up because the metal expands and closes the gap. Check your oil as well as when a head gasket is bown there is normally a milkyness to it.

93 honda accord, replaced head gasket but smokes bad in morning from the exhaust


The valve guides in the cylinder head are probably worn, allowing oil to seep into the cylinders overnight and burn off when you start up in the morning. That is why you're loosing oil, it's being burned off.

White smoke heavy when started and then goes away...drives and after awhile rides alittle rough..Iwas told it might be something else besides head gaskets....


Depends on how much smoke. A little puff that goes away quickly is no cause for concern the flat six engine does get oil deposits under the piston skirt when parked and is considered normal.

Excessive smoke (fogging for mosquites) indicates a failed oil \ air separator. Confirm by removing the oil fill cap with the engine running - if the vacuum tries to **** your hand into the oil tube, your separator is a goner.

Not excessively difficult to replace yourself. The part is about $300 and you can replace it in a couple of hours, it is located at the rear of the engine, passenger side, top.

How much should my Ford ranger 2.5td be smoking,is it normal for diesel engens to smoke.


Sometimes diesel engines will put out black smoke under extreme acceleration. Other than that, they shouldn't smoke. Black is excess fuel, White smoke is water and bluish is oil. White smoke on a cool morning is not necessarily a sign of a problem unless it happens every time you start it through a warm day. Hope this helps.

Xj6 1994 won't start


Check battery voltage and strength first. The computer needa bout 10 volts to get the car started. My battery went low when I had stored my 94 jag and I went to start it. It turned over but didn't start. Because of this it flooded it too. So I took out the battery to charge it and pulled the plugs to clean them of excess fuel. It started right away after this but blew white smoke for about 5 minutes. I thing the fuel soaked the converters. Hope this helps.

If your engine is not misfiring but it vibrates too much while idling your motor mounts might be getting worn out. I had a Nissan with bad motor mounts. I was ok in park but when you put it in gear it vibrated a lot. It smoothed right out as soon as you started moving.

White smoke from exhaust


Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
