Have you done anything to the engine ( rebuild with new rings etc). The oil has to go somewhere and the only place is out the exhaust as blue smoke.place the vehicle on a hoist and check under the floor pan area for signs of oil on the metal under the car as there may be an oil leak that is squirting out into the air stream under the car.

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust

Good check you have done.
Good for you head gasket is still good.
Bad stem valves can let the oil leak in to the combustion chambers causing smokes. Since the engine is Shaky on acceleeration, you need to check the compression presure to see if valves not seating properly ( poor compression ) besides the stem valves. Good luck.

SOURCE: what causes white smoke exhaust system 1998 toyota camry v6

The likely cause is coolant leaking into the cylinders due to a failed head gasket. You should be losing some coolant and need to top it up so check the level. You will also find that coolant is finding its way into the lubrication system and "contaminating" the oil.
Remove the dip stick to check the oil and if you can see a whitish substance in the oil you have coolant in the lubrication system which is is leaking through the failed head gasket.
You may also see traces of oil in the vehicles cooling system so look there also.
The only fix for this problem, once properly diagnosed, is to have the head removed from the engine and a new head gasket fitted. The head would also need to be checked carefully in case of cracking and in any event would most likely need to be machined by a head specialist before being refitted.

The `cause of the failure is unknown but if the vehicle has ever been operated with an overheated engine (due to problems with the cooling system) this is enough to blow the head gasket and to potentially damage the head on the engine.

Not good news I'm afraid so please get it checked out and properly diagnosed with a reputable auto repair business.

SOURCE: 83 Ford F350 Diesel Dually Smoking from oil

I have an old IDI 6.9 diesel. They tend to burn oil, and that would be normal. Just keep a check on your fluids, and unless the smoke is excessive it should not be a problem. I must say though, I personally think the IDI's were the best diesels ever built. They last forever. If you really want to treat your truck to a nice treat, after you fill your tank, dump a quart of auto trans fluid in the fuel. The additives, cleaners,and lubricants in the trans fluid really help to clean all the carbon and build up out of the injection pump, and clean the gunk from the valves and cyllinders. I usually do it every other month or so.

White smoke coming from exhaust,need help


White smoke is condensation from a buildup of water from within the exhaust system - if it was blue smoke then it is burning oil ... let car sit for a few minutes and take the dipstick out - wipe it clean - then re-insert dipstick - take it back out and check level against gauge at bottom of dipstick if you think you may have overfilled the oil

Too much oil in 1995 honda


Did you overfill your car with oil? Did you check the dipstick? Is that why you are thinking there's too much oil? What color is the smoke coming out of the exhaust? If it's white, you could have an issue with the piston rings, as the oil burns it's leaking out through the cylinder piston rings if they are worn down.

Nissan maxima 2000. Oil dipstick level shows too high. Regular oil changes done and filter with proper amount added. White smoke alerted me to recheck things. Only thing I found was dipstick shows oil


If the oil level goes up, something has to be leaking into the engine oil pan.
That would either be gasoline from the injectors or coolant from the radiator. If you are not adding coolant, it could be a leaking injector.

100 series toyota cold start problem


If your after market turbo is blowing oil into the engine, best you have it removed. When you say that fuel may be leaking into the cylinders, it could be leaking fuel injectors. If the smoke out of the tail pipe, it's usually indicator of burning coolant. Blue smoke is indicator of fuel and black of oil.

I have to refill the reserve tank every 7 days after 100 km of driving- no leaks on the floor of the garage. I has 420,000 km. on the engine.


You might have a bad head gasket.Check oil dipstick to see if your oil is milky and check your exhaust.Is it blowing white smoke more than normal.With this mileage it is probably your gasket.
