White Smoke that Disapates Quickly Indicates that there is Coolant being Introduced into the Combustion Chambers = Cause of this can be From Blown Head Gasket to A Cracked Engine Block or Cylinder Head. = Major Work
Now if the "SMOKE" has a BLUE Tint to it and it Hangs in the Air Long this Indicates OIL BURNING, CAUSE= From Valve Stem Seals to Bad Oil Rings on Pistons= Major Work
Hope this Helps Pint you in the right Direction, Sorry its BAD News But thats Been A Part of my Job for 30 yrs ( Giving the Customers ad News)

Many things can contribute to low fuel economy, tire pressure, driving style, milage, and state of the servicing.
What sort of milage does the car have?
Has it had a tune up recently?
Air filter condition?
Fuel filter condition?
Transmission service if milage dictates?

Burning too much gas


the only true way to check fuel economy is to fill tank drive till 1/4 full do this 10 times taking your milage reading before each refill
that will give you your average milage
now if you live in a hilly area and your up and down all the time that will also throw all stuff out the window and in order to get what the manufacturer suggests vehicle will do for avg milage is to go at a steady 30mph on a very slight banked oval tack that is basically flat That is how manufacturers of vehicles get the milage a vehicle will go per gallon

I have a 2002 Chevy Impala about a couple months ago it started having a heavy gas smell and also when i start it to let it run in the mornings it has alot of smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe and on...


what color is the smoke? sounds like air/fuel ratio is off! that could be a vacuum leak, IF air/fuel is off!
the gauge not working is your sending unit in the gas tank!
good luck

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra pickup. Since I started using E85 gas, mileage has dropped drastically. Can you tell me if I need to ues a different type of spark plug? Thanks, Will


These trucks with the flex fuel systems will not get as good of milage on E85. They are designed this way. I haven't heard of any kind of spark plug that will help you in this. It is kind of a trade off, better milage but gas is more expensive, E85 is cheaper and more enviromently freindly but gas milage suffers. I also have a 2006 Chevy but did not get the flex fuel for this reason. On my car I use it and the milage suffers a little but with the trucks you will see even less milage due to the fact that trucks get worse milage than cars to begin with.

2006 Saturn Relay Check Engine Light


PO455 is a large evaporative fuel leak. A bad fuel cap is ONE of the things that COULD be the problem. Fuel system cleaning only lightened your wallet. Reading your post is confusing. Did all this start AFTER the Valvoline Wallet Flushing? If so , they left something loose or disconnected. I would find a qualified repair shop to fix the problem, and if it has anything to do with what Valvoline did, make them pay the bill.

you might have to change out the fuel tank sending unit the floats on some of the older vehicles will start to read wrong and having a digital dash they will go out sooner.

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
