Question about 1994 Chevrolet Camaro
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds like your head gasket is cracked letting radiator fluid into your pistons. After it runs a little bit the water will dissipate. White smoke means you are getting water into the piston areas. Better repair ASAP before major damage is done. Will cost you big time if you don;t get repaired.

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

SOURCE: hard starting diesel
only 2 things can maake a diesel run rough at start up ,,1--- air in the system 2----- 1 or more of the glow plugs not working. this sounds like the latter ,if you have a couple of glow plugs not working ,it will miss on those cylinders until it warms up ,and the smoke is mostll exesive fuel when it does fire . recommend you check the glow plugs

White smoke is usually a sign of water in the oil,being burnt along with fuel in the cylinders.
Check your oil if there is a milky white color on the dipstick then you need to take it in for service.
You may need to have your fuel sysytem cleaned and checked,sometime white smoke can be from improper fuel mixture.
