If the smoke is black it is a rich fuel feed condition, if the smoke is a blueish color the valve stem seals must be replaced.

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

Excessive smoking inspite of new nozzles and newly calibrated injection pump


One of two things as far as i know that can cause this...
1... piston rings are shot (smokes all the time but worse when its cold)
2... Valve stem seals (mostly smokes when you accelerate)
Hope this is of use..

My freelander land rover is making blue smoke coming out of the tail pipe at start up once I drive it after 20 minutes no more until next day what is the problem?


valve seals allowing oil into cylinders
oil ring on piston broken
worn valve guide in head
blue smoke means ur burning oil
black smoke burning to much fuel
white smoke burning coolant
the landrover part makes my wallet hide
leaving it will only foul up your plugs,crud up inside the engine
and eventualy kill it. no quick cheap fix there sorry

Spits gas and smokes alot from the tail pipe


Hi Dave,

I appreciate you asking mr to help you with your problem.
However, I am not really certain what you are describing here. Are you saying that you have RAW, UNBURNED FUEL coming out the tailpipe? Or are you saying that there is an excessive amount of LIQUID coming out the tail pipe and you are not really sure WHAT it is?

If the latter is the case, and you have a lot of white steam coming out of the tail pipe, you really need to check your engine coolant level. You could have something like a blown head gasket causing this. A blown head gasket will cause the engine to push engine coolant out the exhaust.

My 92 ford is using excessive gas and has a bad gas smell with alot of smoke coming from tailpipe after i add gas


If the smoke comming from the tail pipe is black your running rich. If thats the case the entire fuel system has to be ckecked out. Injectors could be leaking, a bad pressure regulator,stuck return line ,a coolant temp sensor could be telling the ECU that the engines cold give her more gas. I don't recommend doing fuel service unless your qualified to do so for the obvious reasons.
If the smoke coming out of the tail is grayish you have a bad head gasket. If the smoke coming out of the tail is blue you have engine oil getting into the combustion chamber. keep me posted

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.
