Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
My toyota avensis D4D 2011 WOULD NOT START THE GARAGE PUT SILICONE IN THE AIR INLET TO GET IT STARTED IT NOW HAS A LAT OF WHITE SMOKE COMING FROM EXHAUST THEY SAY THEY WILL NOW HAVE TO DRAIN THE DIESEL TANK AND CLEAN IT. IS THIS CORRECT
Silicone--I doubt that
Silicone will ruin the exhaust converter
White smoke is usually a head gasket & coolant
being heated in the combustion chamber

It is your vehicle,your problem & only you authorize
what gets done & paid for--- NOT the shop-- at their

SOURCE: Hi, I own a 3.0
White smoke on diesel engines, means water in combustion chamber. Blue smoke means oil.
In what condition was the filter you removed? How bad? Temperature issues? Missing coolant maybe? If yes, you might as well have an internal leak. Some gasket maybe. Check all you vital fluids levels. If anything missing, take the time to empty the engine oil on a can, and check the colour. If it will look like chocolate brown, then you do have a leak from the inside.

black smoke is one indication of a motor running very rich...the sensor that has the most control of this will be the the airflow meter...ive seen black smoke coming from all types of cars when these go bad
