Question about Toyota Hilux

1 Answer

I have a 5L-E toyota hilux that runs fine at idle yhen when you rev it to about 2000 rpm it starts to blow alot of white smoke. I have cut injectors out while the smoke is blowing with no noticable change. I have run it from a clean fuel container no change. Air filter has been changed and filters all has made no differance. Oh and the engine check light comes on but goes off as soon as you stop reving it. Any ideas? It has 200k on it.

I believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out

SOURCE: sputtering during idle blue smoke

You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.

SOURCE: engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.

the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

My toyota hilux 2007 model starts well produces alot of white smook idles roughly when i scan i will have this code p1290 so What do i do


Without looking at any computer code I will tell you that is definately in the emissions of the vehicle, try have the sensor replaced that is associated with the fuel system, there are several sensors on vehicles, but if it putting off alot of white smoke its running too rich for one and 2 it probaby gets better when the vehicle is warmed up the motor, definately check the exhaust of the vehicle too hope this helps

Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket maybe. Does the smoke have a sweet smell to it? If not it is oil or fuel.

This was the first symptom that the head gasket was going on my hilux 2.7 3rzfe. Soon afterward I started getting the tell tale white smoke in the exhaust until the engine had warmed up and a noticable coolant loss... That can cause rough running until the 'leaky' cylinder has warmed up and dried out...

If there is a blockage in the engine breather, that can cause this to happen and if not corrected, in a diesel, can cause runaway and it will destroy itself.

Mazda bravo blowing white smoke


blowing white smoke is almost always a symptom of an engine coolant leak at the cylinder head gasket. remove each spark plug and look for a dis-colored plug to find which cylinder is leaking.
