I would check your header gaskets. At first it will smoke a little then increase a lot more as you drive it. Keep an eye on your heat gage. If it increases and the smoke increases, then I'm thinking for sure it has to do with your heads. Do not drive the vehicle, Because it will make matters worse. If its not either of your header gaskets. Check your oil pump inside the oil pan. I had an older model that smoked like a crop duster but still had power and it was the oil pump. There is a way to check. You pull one of your plugs and just crank the motor and if antifreeze spits out then you have a bad header or gasket. I'm not sure what plug do. You should look it up. If its you catalytic converter, Just take it off and punch out the baffles then stick it back on. I did that with mine and there was no change in the noise and ran great without the restriction.

SOURCE: engine oil

It is not unusual for an older truck to be burning a little oil. It is burning very little so you will not smell burnt oil or see blue smoke in the exhaust. But the oil burn does add up and you may notice a drop on the oil dipstick after a few weeks. On a 9 year old truck under normal working conditions will burn a little oil. If you are having to add 1 liter between oil changes, that is ok, just shows normal engine ware. 2 Liters is acceptable between oil changes if the truck does a lot of heavy pulling or work. 3 or more liters indecates a problem, but at that rate, you should be able to smell oil and see blue smoke.

SOURCE: 95 monte carlo 110000kms has smoke/oil burning

Common problems for these cars is the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets and front crank seal. None of which are extremely expensive or hard to change, just time consuming. It would be typical for someone selling the car to steam clean the engine. Check the coolant resevoir for contaminants and level as well as the oil level and condition. Make sure that the oil filter used is an AC Delco. These will give you optimum and correct oil pressure. Not all filters are created equal! If you feel it may be a ring issue, check the exhaust for signs of black carbon build up and signs of cleaning. It is likely that it is an external leak. If you wish you may send me pics of the engine compartment to analyze and I can tell you where to photograph.

You have a bad head gasket. So far the leak is not so bad but will eventually reach the oiling openings in the gasket so watch out for that. Change them as soon as you can

My 1999 chevy blazer is running rich where I smell fuel fumes can this cause the truck to loose power and not go over 30 but the engine runs smooth


Most likely, A good "burn" is the right Fuel-air mixture. Too much fuel bad burn lots of black smoke. Not enough fuel It may not burn at all. Any emission codes? I will bet it won't pass an emissions test, so get it fixed. Probably affects mileage. Do you smell fuel in the engine compartment? you have a dangerous leak. Or do you smell at exhaust? Do you smell in the cab?
Probably leak in engine bay, or even under the truck's fuel line, filter, pump. or tank.

Burning smell


Hehe...Well, unfortunately without smelling it, or looking at the vehicle, there's not much I can do for you here. Check underneath for oil leaks getting onto the hot exhaust, or maybe a plastic bag stuck to exhaust, etc. Good luck.

99 Grand Am Smoke Exhaust


I'm sorry to say your engine may be cooked.
Since you are adding both oil and coolant, and the color of the smoke is gray or white, you have the signs of the engine burning coolant.
The common cause is a leaking head gasket.

you have to determine what type of smoke it is, a white smoke is a coolant in exhaust sweet smell problem, a blue smoke is fuel and smells like it and burns eyes, a black smoke is oil, bad rings,valve seals. Stop treating it like a drag car !! HA,HA

Fuel smell in oil, and also burns aprox. 1 qt. of oil in 300 miles of use. Just had the engine rebuilt due to valve clatter,smoking on acceleration and start-up


Intake, combustion, exhaust system is supposed to be separate from lubrication system. You have a breakdown somewhere in that separation evidenced by gas smell in oil and oil coming through exhaust. Possibly head gasket or piston ring. Take it back to the folks who rebuilt it and ask them about it.

1999 chevy blazer starts, but makes noise and no acceleration


Smoke coming out from the middle of the two rear tires right? Sound like your rear differential is out of lubricant. Leftover lubricant is probably getting burned by heat from the friction. Have your rear differential lubed up.
