Hi Michael, I'm glad to help! When a vehicle starts to smoke, and I'm assuming you talking from the tailpipe. Its alway because there are worn parts, these parts could be anything from: Valve seals, Rings, PCV could be stop up, also on older model like yours, provided it has an auto-trans could be the modulator. This is a round cylinder looking object with a vacuum hose running to it which is attached to the side of the transmission. When it goes bad it will allow trans fluid to slip through it and it runs into the Intake Manifold and smokes out the tailpipe. As you see there are a lot of things that can cause an engine to smoke. You can check the rings by doing a "Cylinder Leak Down Test". The modulator, check it by simply unhooking the vacuum hose and if fluid runs out of the hose then replace the vacuum modulator NOTE: Provided it has a modulator. If both of these are OK, I suggest replacing the valve seals. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Michael.

Dodge daytona smoke problem

Could be several things. A blown head gasket can come in a large range of severity, and is a good place to start looking. Is there "milky" stuff in the oil? if so it is from H2O getting in from the head gasket and means you should have it replaced. It could be the valve seals are bad, and it could be blow by (Oil) through the pistons if you have 1,000,000,000,000 or so miles. (Yes, a trillion). If it still has good power, no water (H2O) in the oil, and runs good, you could just drive it till it gets like, real bad. If you love the car, have the head gasket looked at/ replaced, get a valve job but be wary getting a new head because if lower moter has many miles, then a new, tight head will probably vastly accelerate the lower end tearing up. (half new, tight seals, and half older, looser seals, equals 2x pressure on the older.. get it?). I have had a blown head gasket in a 2.2 avenger that ran for 60,000 miles before it got (actually, the rear main went out so..) bad enough to need worked on. It is all about luck, really. Good Luck and God Bless.
