I just replaced my fuel pump in my 85 Chevy blazer and when I started it up she ran for a few and then all this smoke came and she died and now she won't even turn over


If it was white smoke then the head gasket failed and now the cylinder is full of coolant and you cannot compress liquid so the engine is seized.

Why bmw x5 battery drain fan not working exhaust blowing out white smoke... what may be happening.


White smoke out of the exhaust indicates moisture (water) in the exhaust. If the car is not driven very far each day, some moisture will collect in the muffler and cause white smoke for a short while after starting. If the smoke is continual, however, you need to watch you coolant level as you may have a blown head gasket.

My 85 honda accord is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust pipe in the rear and it appears to have something dripping onto the heat shield under the car, what do you think could be the problem?


check the brake system for any leaks. check the master cylinder for leaking out the rear of it. if you take the master cylinder nuts of that hold it to the power brake booster and slide the master off the booster and look at the rear of the master to check for a fluid leak or dampness. if you see this replace the master cylinder. also sometimes the power booster will suck the fluid were its drawn into the engine and burnt and the smoke will look white. another thing that causes white smoke is a bad head gasket as the coolant is sucked into the combustion chamber and burnt, it can also leak externally and cause the dripping you see.

I have a 1995 chevy blazer with the 4.3 high output vortex motor no cat in it did the fix to the 02 so it would read right just changed the fuel pressure regulator and now it blows white smoke and runs...


White smoke means there's water or coolant mixing in with your fuel. Could mean a blown head gasket or intake manifold. The more you drive it like this, the more expensive the damage will be to repair.
As you have already changed the regulator and checked sensor the above can be a problem please check

We are looking at buying a 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero 3.0l EFI. It is blowing out white smoke soon after start up suspected blown head gasket/s. How easy would it be to replace it and get timing right?


Relative to other engines with the same size, the degree of difficulty is the same since most types of vehicles has the timing gear/chain facing the radiator. As long at you know where the timing lines line up and you should be good to go.
