Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My Toyota Nadia stopped whilst running, I started it and smoke came out of the exhaust pipe. I left and the next morning mechanics told me it had mixed oil and drained about 10L of oil/petrol mixture.

Changed engine oil, and start the engine

Hello Louis,

As you have no doubt learned by now, the only way fuel can get into the oil is via the injectors (carb?) and for that to happen a stuck injector had to be pouring gas into the intake, where it bypassed the rings and joined oil in the sump.

That's a lot of gas! Car must have been running horribly. If the gas was in the sump long enough to thoroughly dilute the oil, you may also have bearing damage from inadequate lubrication.

First, fix the source of the gas, then carefully check for oil pressure.

No easy fix, in that case??.

all the best.

You don't state which fluids were changed. Exactly which were changed? Also are you sure that what was changed was exactly refilled?

Check the color of the oil if it looks like a chocolate shake you have a blown head gasket

SOURCE: When I start my 2003 ES300 smoke comes out the exhaust

The same thing happened to my 2003 ES300 - the smoke is coming from the oil seeping into the motor's cylinders. This is the classic "Oil Gelling" problem in Toyota and Lexus vehicles. There is a factory recall on it, but it only covers to 2002 ES300 not 2003. The Lexus dealer confirmed my "oil gel" problem and went to bat for me with Lexus - they got the repair approved - Thank you Mr Local Lexus Dealer! The cost was nearly $4,000 - paid for by Lexus.

SOURCE: my Toyota hi ace engine

This is usually a sign of a bad head gasket. coolant is entering the cylinder(s) and is being burnt off as steam. coolant is also mixing with the engine oil. The color of the engine oil would be that of coffee with lots of cream if the head gasket is blown. The radiator would also be low on coolant.

I first would check th eoil to make sure they put the correct ammount of oil in. This sounds like no oil, over oil, or blown gasket

2006 toyota avalon blowing white smoke in the morning


This sounds like coolant is leaking into the combustion chamber so when it is cool remove the radiator cap and see if the coolant level is low which will indicate that the engine is consuming coolant. Pressure testing the cooling system would be the next test to check for such a lek.

Car is smoking on start up, a lot of white smoke


If the engine is using oil then first remove the dipstick and run the engine, check to see if heavy smoke is coming out of the tube, this would indicate worn piston rings,if it is not so dense, yet you are using oil and it smokes bad from the exhaust, then its likely the valve seals are worn. either way, unless you have mechanical knowledge, tools etc , you need to take it to a mechanic for the engine repairs or live with the oil consumption. There are no quick fixes for engine wear.

With the white smoke in the morning but not later after you drive a bit sounds like the valves aren't operating properly.The cutting could be related to the valve issue.

Morning White Smoke At Start-up (2003 4cyl Camry)


This problem is common but often over looked. Moisture vapor is a grayish white color but it dissipates very quickly. Smoke that is grayish white is caused specifically from burning oil. The problem you have is a small seal called a valve seal. It is very common in cars that sit a fair amount of the time. The seal gradually starts to leak and allow tiny drops of oil to drip into the combustion chamber. When the engine is started then it smokes until the oil is burned. Due to the amount of time that your car smokes after start tells me that the leak is very small. That is why there is no oil consumption. This is not going to harm the car unless it becomes very bad and then the only thing that would happen is more smoke and fouled plugs. You can start using a heavier weight oil and add an oil treatment to the oil when you have it changed. This may evin stop it all together. Hope this answered your question. Please rate this solution if you think it has helped. Good luck and thanks cj2176.
