I have a 1996 E 320. I was driving on the freeway and the check oil light came out. I pulled over and stop. Inmediatelly after that a lot of smoke came out. I opened the hood and it looked like th oil came out from the dip stick and it leaked out all over. I checked the oil it it was about a quart low, topped off oil and vehicle would not start.

White smoke from exhaust


You probably have oil that spilled over onto the engine block and manifolds which is burning off while you drive. You could get some degreaser and clean the engine. You could also just keep driving it untill it stops smoking as long as it seems to be running OK.

Volvo quit running


If the smoke was white, then you've probably blew the head gasket. Check for coolant in the oil as well as the coolant level. Coolant in the oil and low coolant in the radiator or reserve bottle combined are good indication of blown head gasket.

2003 lincoln aviator/how do you know if there's motor damage


Your car shouldn't have just suddenly started burning oil. Its possible it's leaking in the engine compartment and the leak is dripping onto the hot exhaust manifold and the. The smoke is blowing out the back as you drive. I would think it's unlikely that the engine has been damaged since the check-engine light should have come on if the oil level was low enough to cause damage.

If hii find that bluish smoke is coming from the exhaust pipes, then the next thing to check is whether it smokes on acceleration or deceleration. If the latter, it may be just a valve issue. If it smokes a lot on startup, then it may be rings.

Blue smoke coming out of my 1999 Toyota Avalon what do I need to do


Usually a sign of worn piston rings and/or valve guides.
If the oil has been changed and the PCV system is working, I doubt you can do much other than rebuild the engine.
V6 Toyota engines have been known to build up sludge in the engine if the oil is not changed regularly.

Vehicle just serviced but dropped sump plug on freeway, saw smoke, pulled off very smartly, stopped oil still running from sump - need sump bolt size and how do i check oil pressure etc if I switch back...


If you stopped soon enough you might be alright. The only answer I can give is go to the local auto parts store and they will be able to give you what you need by make, model and engine size with questionable options. I hope you stopped in time to save it.

I have a 1998 Buick Century. Yesterday while driving the car's oil light would turn-on when I stopped at a stop sign and when I accelerated the oil light turned-off. I pulled into a gas station and...


The oil light coming on when stopped at a stop sign tells me your engine was already damaged before you had the power loss problem. I would not waste the 650 to put in an oil pump. You would be further ahead to just replace the engine.

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.
