smell the exhaust first, if it is sweet smelling, it may be the headgasket.

sounds like something to do with your turbo.. could be loosing boost through an air leak etc... which is where the oil might also be coming from if there has been a blowout pressure goes out oil comes in causeing smoke and loss of acceleration.

White smoke is usually coolant, oil is usually a blue color, most turbos r cooled by coolant so U may have a coolant leak in the turbo, may B a seal or crack in the turbo. Check your coolant level occasionally to C if it drops.

Will only stay running on revs over 2000rpm if I take foot of peddle it cuts out also white smoke from exhaust


What is year--make--model?
Are you losing coolant? The white smoke may be coolant in the combustion cylinder, possibly caused by a head gasket problem. If head gasket problem, fix that first.

With idle issues, clean/check anything that has to do with idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes?

Why does vvti engine SMOKING HEAVILY 135000kms .1.6 verso. is this common?


if its black smoke then its a fuel problem too much fuel the car can`t burn it . could be fuel injector over fueling. if its white smoke then its burning coolant, there is a head gasket problem that is damaged in the cyl #3 area. it could also be a bad valve guide/valve seal, oil rings, compression rings. you don`t say what colour the smoke is.

Blue smoke coming from exhaust


Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust indicates that oil is getting into the piston cylinder and being burned along with the gas. This could be a leaking head gasket, worn piston rings, or the wrong weight engine oil (viscosity too low). A leak down test will be needed to diagnose.
Have you checked your engine oil level?

My volvo is smoking heavily from the exhaust.the smoke is white and whenver i start it it smokes heavily.is this normal or it needs some attention.help please am so worried.its a 2002 s80 T6 model.


well white smoke means coolant, antifreeze burnning along with gasoline in the combustion chamber, you might have a blown head gasket, a compression test will tell you the where the problem is locate it, dont let this go to far without fixing the problem, or it will hurt your engine. Thanks.

i would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--
check egr too, Lee

White smoke, water vapor at initial start-up. drives a few miles, smokes again. could it be a vacuum regulator? 2001 jaguar s-type


Water vapor coming out of the exhaust at initial start-up is normal; that is condensation that collects when the engine is not running. White smoke at start-up depends on a couple of things. Tell me, where do you live? When the weather is very cold, all engines will emit steam (white smoke) when they are first running; this stops after the engine has been running a while and is warm.

In short, if this is only happening at first start of the morning and goes away over time, there is nothing wrong.

If, however, the "white smoke" continues and never stops, you may have a blown head gasket.

Black smoke from exhaust


this guy is wrong. Black smoke means to rich[to much fuel]. Your motor is not shot. Something is wrong with the engine management[sensor]. White or blue smoke is a fatal problem.
