That's usually a sign that the engine is burning oil. Could be worn piston rings, bad gasket(s)... check that there is not too much oil in the engine. Make sure the PCV valve is functioning (if it has one). If it's been happening for a little while you can check your spark plugs for signs of oil (unscrew one and inspect the ignitor).

Have LT 1536 . Smoke started coming out the exhaust but engine sounds healthy


Depends on the colour of the smoke.
Unlikely an engine will sound healthy emitting black smoke - excess fuel.

An engine could sound healthy emitting white smoke (steam from coolant) but not from white smoke (excess unburned diesel).

Most engines emitting blue or blue-grey smoke from burning engine oil can sound very healthy.

I have finally frustrated reconditioned cylinder heads. . change ht leads and the distribution cap but fuel consumption is high blueish to grey smoke.


Hi,blue smoke means that oil is being burned,so as you have reconditionned the head it wont be the stem cills,it could be that you have worn piston rings,the grey smoke is most probably vapour from the exhaust,hope this was some help.

Truck smokes


Guess the motor is done

That would appear to be oil your burning

Somethings worn or broken,a piston or ring,
bad valve guides or seals

No fix for that,pull the motor,assuming it is a gas vehicle

2005 pt cruiser grey smoke


Gray smoke can be difficult to diagnose.
Black is usually too much fuel, and white is usually a coolant leak.
You should be adding coolant to the radiator if it is a coolant leak.

Engine Smoke from exhaust with foul smell


four cylinder?

It is not uncommon for these engines to start to "burn" oil. Check the oil level and confirm that it is low. If it is make sure to top it off and monitor the level.

Next time you change oil try using a oil designed for high mileage vehicles. We have been using Mobil High Mileage at the shop with pretty good results on higher mileage engines with oil consumption issues. We have have several of the same vehicles as your use the product and it has helped them as well. It can't hurt to give it a shot.

White smoke belching out but will not start


white smoke is usually water, grey=oil dark grey=other fluids. with the belching and other symptoms i would be inclined to believe you have a blown head gasket.

Grey smoke coming from exhaust and oil in the exhaust pipe


Grey or blueish smoke indicates that you are burning oil, usually a sign of worn piston rings.

Keep an eye on the oil level in the vehicle
