Depending on engine mileage, could be bad valve guide seals (high mileage) or PCV system issue. If seals, these can be replaced without removing cylinder heads.

Last week it started smoking like a forest fire, then quit the 2 days later did it again. i stopped for 10 min then didnt smoke again


It sounds like you have a bad gasket. When you start the engine it is cold and everything is contracted allowing possibly coolant to get into the pistons. Once the engine warms the metal and gaskets expand, closing the leak off. This is only a guess though, not knowing the make, model or year of vehicle and not knowing if the smoke is blue, black or white it's hard to give you a more definitive answer.

New Toyota Etios, VD,KM 1100, observed thick white smoke from exaust pipe for @ 1 Min, while running engine on ideal.


the white smoke occurrence is due to unique Vehicle usageconditions like slow speed & Short trips drivingthe catalytic convertor is not able reach its optimum reactiontemperature. As a result, the Hydrocarbon accumulates in the Catalytic Converter.After sometime, once the saturation limit is attained, the accumulated Hydrocarbon
starts burning inside the Catalytic Converter. During this Chemical Reaction,Momentarily the white smoke is seen in the exhaust and is normal

I have a 1993 ford probe gt.. its starting to smoke under the hood by the passenger window its a light smoke it has an oil leak too.When I turn on my vent the smoke comes out this only happens when car...


you have an oil leak and when you step on the gas pedal the preasure inside the engine makes the oil come out faster and when it hits any part of the exhaust it starts to smoke i would find the leak and replace the gasket

I just bought this tempo it starts but after i have been driving for about 20 min it starts to smoke and it starts to get hot it stops then you hav eto get a jump to start it.


It sounds like you have brought a lemon as if it hard to start when cold then its lacking compression which is worn engine piston rings and valve guides,and if it starts smoking when driving and if its BLUE smoke then its bad piston rings And if its BLACK smoke then its to much petrol getting into the engine which will also cause the engine to wear out quick as its washing the bores with fuel instead of oil,and that will also stop the engine from starting when hot,
SO if its BLUE smoke replace the engine
If BLACK smoke repair fuel fault.

My 2009 H2 is idling rough for 2-5 min with a cool start, after 2 weeks of doing this, its now blowing white smoke on the first start of the day for 2-5 mins, after that it runs normally, I have NO...


My guess would be a leaking intake or head gasket. Water in the cylinder(s) is shorting the spark plug until the temp comes up on the engine. The white smoke is the coolant being burnt off. check your coolant level it may be low.

Smoking after start up


If it's the org. engine it will has over 160,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder on high mileage engine.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the valve stem seals. The oil drops land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.


The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional CRC/service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
