SOURCE: White smoke exhaust

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

SOURCE: exhaust smokes when engine starts

Most common reason for that is worn valve stem seals and or guides or gunk buildup in the cylinder head blocking oil return holes.... Or, broken piston ring or burned piston lands. (use compression test to verify that) Knocking can be from oil detonating in cylinder or bad rod bearing etc.

I have a Brute Force 750, starts OK but runs rough after a few minutes, will start smoking a smelly black/gray smoke, and most recently some blue smoke.


When the head gasket fails on a liquid (water) cooled engine the typical smoke colour is white (steam) and that becomes rather underlined by the steady drop of the coolant level and often clear evidence combustion gas is leaking into the cooling system.

Smelly black/grey smoke tends to be produced by an over-fuelling condition such as a stuck choke or strangler or other cold starting aid or perhaps carburettor flooding.

Blue or blue/grey smoke is invariably engine oil burning but I suggest you ignore that until the black smoke problem is rectified and after a short time the blue smoke might also disappear. If it doesn't it could be related to the overheating but the black smoke probably wasn't caused by that...

I have a 02 dodge 1500 4.7 when you let idle and give it a little gas it wants to smoke a little blue smoke after a few seconds it clears up what could be the problem its got a 194,000 miles on it


Hello Aaron, Bad valve seals can cause your engine to smoke after start up and clear up after a few seconds of running. Sometimes the valve seals become hard and brittle. They can break up and restrict the oil return holes in the cylinder heads, causing oil to seep into the cylinders through the valve guides.

Blue smoke when starting van & engine ticking very loudly in gears1 to 4


Blue smoke is caused from the engine burning oil along with the gas and oil. This indicates an INTERNAL oil leak. An external oil leak is one that makes spots on the driveway.
The ticking is probably from low oil or low oil pressure. Id have it checked pretty soon by a professional mechanic. It may be time to spend serious money.

White Smoke when i put gas in car


The most common cause of blue (or worse still) being expelled through the exhaust system is extreme wear in the engine, or, if you're extremely fortunate a significant OVERFILL of the engine oil level. One other possible, though unlikely cause, is a fault in the engine's scavenging system.
Has this problem occurred suddenly without warning? Had the car been serviced immediately before this event, or the engine oil topped up?

My plymouth voyager just started smoking


If its bluish smoke coming out of the exhaust, then engine oil is leaking past the piston's oil rings. You'll need an engine rebuild, or give its last rites before sending to the salvage yard. If it's white, it should clear up as the engine warms up. White smoke is caused by lack of heat temperature in the combustion chamber. If the engine is warm, and its still smoking (black smoke), then too much fuel is entering one (or more) of the cylinders, which is often caused by a faulty fuel injector. To diagnose which injector is faulty, remove and inspect each spark plug. Any Haynes or Chilton manual has a spark plug section showing what a normal spark plug should look like, versus one caused by faulty injectors.

Engine smokes when cold.but runs great,all gauges show engine is running normal, engine only has 39,000miles on it


White smoke is the result of burning coolant and the blue is a sign of burning oil. A common cause of this is a blown head gasket.

This could also be caused by bad valve guide/valve seal that allows oil to seep into the cylinder while the vehicle is off. When started the smoke will come from the xhaust as that oil is burned. Within a minute or so the smoke stops because no oil is seeping intot he cylinder.

Check the plugs for signs of coolant, oil, or burning.

Smoke problem


hey
there are couple of smoke type.blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
