SOURCE: my truck blows white smoke

Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck

SOURCE: car is hard to start, keeps stalling, white smoke coming out of tail pipe

It sounds to me like you have a head gasket leaking. See if you can get a gauge and check each cylinder. Are you using alot of anti freeze?

I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

SOURCE: has a 2004-2006 honda accord 2.2 diesel, timing belt or chain?

Belt is better replace either about every 100.000 or you'll destroy the engine when it goes out

Belt is Better because it's easier to replace, therefore much cheaper

Chain is inside and in the oil bath so harder= more expensive

By the way. dealer says replace every 60K . 100K is a MAXIMUM

SOURCE: timing chain 2006 aerio

timing chains are not maintenance/wear items, they are not anticipated to fail because they don't suffer degradation from heat and fluids like rubber belts do

After smog pump reinstallment, car wont crank


If car cranked but white smoke came out of the tailpipe.The car may have either a bad head gasket or a cracked cylinder head.You mentioned changeing the radiator.Did the car overheat severely?This would stress the headgasket.The car may not start now because the plugs are wet(water)or the rings have lost their ability to seal compression due to overheating.

My astrovan chugs, backfires, and blows black smoke through the tailpipe. Someone said maybe a timing chain could that be the problem?


It could. One way to tell is to take a compression check. All cylinders should have 120 psi or greater and not vary more than 20 psi. A burned exhaust valve or a loose timing chain will cause your symptoms. An overly rich mixture can also do some of the things you describe.

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after warming up it stops smoking.


The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

White smoke when reved up. No loss of fluids or coolant in the oil. Just oil-like smell burning out the tailpipe with big puff of white smoke


White smoke on startup could be a head gasket leak between the water jacket and the cylinder. Won't always show in the oil. Antifreeze makes it smell oily or sweet. Compression test will tell for sure. Bluish is oil that was burned. White is usually water or oil into exhaust after combustion.

Smoke from my tailpipe


Is it white,grey or blue?? If its white its normal moisture build up. If its grey you have an oil leak possibly from your valve covers, If its bluish then you may have a blown head gasket. Good luck.

Smoke comes out of the tailpipe when first


60,000 miles or so depending on the engine but if its blue smoke which it means its oil burning its sounds like valve guide seals.

Heap of white smoke on startup but not always


White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.
