SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my car doesn't start off

usually white smoke is caused by water or anti freeze entering cylinder. in radiator or overflow the coolant will look like a chocolate milk shake. check on oil dipstick for traces of water or anti freeze. this would indicate a bad head gasket. look around head at gasket, and see if you can see any leaks. Most symptoms of a blown head gasket can be diagnosed through careful observation As the coolant heats up, and pressure rises, it will be forced into the cylinder during the intake stroke. This coolant will flash into steam during combustion and will be visible as a white cloud coming from the tailpipe. it may not even be a head gasket thats bad, cause usually if headgasket is bad, engine will overheat!! but if a bad gasket vehicle would miss and loose power. also check the pcv system ( positive crankcase valve ). hope this helps ! check system first !!

2004 , no miles on engine, stated, (odometer) 50k, 500k, what?
all engines burn oil by design. ALL !
only question is, how much, ?
miles /per quart
or KM per LITER.

if you ask any sharp mech, to fix oil consumption, HE WILL
Ching-ching..... after all you asked him, !!!!!
don't , no really dont.

post the consumption rates and ask.?
ive got like 1.5million miles in cars, and motorcycles.
and 300k or more in ships. (our ship burns oil only) LOL

the number 1 reason of excessive oil is driving too fast.
if you drive most cars 80mphy all the time, it will burn more oil
most cars new run about 1 quart of oil per 3000 miles.

I had one engine, a mazda, i drove it to the ground, as an experiment.
a 626, it was using a quart every 1000 miles
it took oil EVERY fill up. oils cheap so I fed it. why not?
the PO overheated the engine once and that is why.;
I rebuild engines so , know the reasons.... (retired now)

does tail pipe end smoke? , (end) first start, not steam,but oil smoke)?
only cold, ignore it.
does it hot?, its got issues. (rings)
if it loves toSMOKE , going down a hill fast?, and with foot off throttle
(high vacuum) and you look in rear view mirror and it's smoking
yes, that is valve seals bad, $10 in parts.
ask someone to follow you, and look for smoke, (easy,huh?)

if it smokes all the time?, and PCV valve is new (not clogged)
it needs rings. or like me, just drive it like you stole it, why not?

Check to be sure you don't just have a leak somewhere.
If you are getting oil sheen on top of the coolant in your radiator, or if the oil is turning gray, it's a head gasket or cracked head. If you are getting blue smoke at idle, it is piston rings. Either way, it sounds like you have a predictably worn engine after 10 years of use.

HOW TO FIX A NISSAN PATROL BLOWING WHITE SMOKE AND HAVING A BLOWBY


White smoke from the exhaust is usually a sign that the head gasket has failed. But, it could be an oil system failure in the Turbo cooling system. It would help to know the engine and fuel type in your Patrol(They make so many different models, and they aren't all the same)

Car has white smoke some says it's rings and some say it's over fueling


Excessively rich mixture will give black smoke. Blue/white smoke is oil. If the smoke is present when you start the engine or run against compression only, the probable cause is the valve stem seals. If the smoke is continuous it will usually be due to rings that are worn. (Check that the sump is not too full).

White smoke and the smell of burning rubber. I have had lots maintenance of work done to my car. I was starting to notice and smell burn oil. I had a small valve cover leak so I just had the whole...


Bradley,
You have stated two problems. Coming to second first. Smell of burning rubber. in the car rubber is only at two places where it can burn, The tyres, unlikely as you have not commented upon your driving habits. Some people like to rev the engine so much before take off that the tyres go burning for the first few hundred meters. And then there is rubber on the wires and cables. You have to check the wires for any heat while the engine is running.
Coming to the first now. White smoke is generally of unburnt fiel and not oil. Oil alwayd give black smoke and that is the indication you get when the exhaust is giving black smoke. That means that the engine is consuming oil. if it is white then that indicates that the engine is cold and burning more gas/diesel. Is your a diesel vehicle?? But as you say it from under the hood. And that too behind the engine block. May be that the gasket is leaking from somewhere. If you could check the engine oil level for a few days early in the morning before starting the engine. If the level drops and the exhaust tail pipe does not blacken your finger when you rub it in it would mean that the oil is being burnt. Now what I suggest is that with the engine running and hand brakes on, go under the car with hood open and try to locate the source of the smoke. I am sure you would be able to locate it.
Then we talk again.

White smoke coming from my 95 Geo tracker, Standard shift, only on start up any ideas. Just had a tune up, new clutch, and cable.


most deffinately an internal issue. 2 possible problems oil seeping through valves when engine not running. sitting in combustion chamber and burns off during start up. 2 piston rings in one or more cylinders bad and letting oil blow by and start up is only time it is really noticeable.

Smoke and water from tailpipe


That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps

My truck blows white smoke


Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck
