Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

88 Toyota p/u stalled on way home. Engine was smoking and the oil light came on. I immediately put in one quart of oil, got it started and drove it half a block to park it safely. Got another quart of oil...


It's not suprising that the engine stalled after getting hot considering you had run the engine out of oil as indicated by oil pressure light coming on and needing two quarts to refill it. Now that the oil is replaced, you could keep driving, but it would be wise to investigate why it had got so low on oil in the first place. Refer explanation below. You should check the oil level weekly to ensure it is at the correct level and top up if necessary. For that year vehicle, oil and filter changes should be around the 3,000 mile / 5,000 Km mark.
It sounds like the engine could be using excessive oil by either leaking out or being burnt in the cylinders.. If there is a major leak then there will be oil puddles under the engine after sitting for a while. Excessive oil burning in the cylinders is indicated by grey oil smoke from the exhaust when driving. If engine has oil and grime all over the best way to find the leaks is to get the engine pressure cleaned and then observe where the oil leaks are. The most usual places for older vehicles are the sump and valve cover gaskets followed by crankshaft seals. Oil leaks can also come from a loose oil filter or a faulty warning light pressure switch. If exhaust smoke is excessive then it would indicate worn piston rings and / or valve guides and seals.

High temp low oil 2003 ford explorer


High temp could be low coolant check your coolant level. Low oil-check for leaks, if no leaks then check for blue smoke out exhaust, if no blue smoke it could just be low. A vehicle will go through a quart of oil between oil changes, even a newer one.

THIS IS NORMAL IF IN COLD WEATHER BUT IF YOU HAVE WHITE ALL THE TIME YOU MAY HAVE A COOLANT LEAK WITHIN THE ENGINE.THE WAY TO TELL IS TO TAKE THE RADIATOR CAP OFF,BUT MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COOL,AND CRANK IT UP,IF WATER STARTS PUSHING OUT THEN ITS A HEAD OR GASKET PROBLUM WITH THE MOTOR

Under the hood smokes


the smoke may be just residual oil burning off.. some vehicles it is almost impossible to clean up all excess oil that spills on the vehicle when changeing the oil.. try driveing it . it should burn off in a day or so.. also check it and make sure its not leaking... if u feel that its not just a leak or excess oil.. take it back to the place u changed the oil and have them recheck it as a precaution.

Toyota 1998 Carib 1.6L using excessive engine oil?? Well maintained and looked after car can't understand y?


Well for starters, that oil has to be going somewhere, obviously.  So most likely it is the piston rings, these wear out over time regardless of how well taken care of your car is.  Check the exhaust out while the car is running, if there is a white-blueish smoke, thats piston rings.  if it is more grey-ish, thats most likely a head gasket, in which case check the coolant overflow for color, and remove the oil filler cap and look on the inside, if you see a nasty looking white film, thats caused by water/coolant in the oil, most likely leaking through a bad head gasket.  Or it may be leaking out somewhere, if there are no puddles it may be leaking near a hot exhaust pipe/manifold and burning off.  
As long as you keep enough oil in it, it should be fine for a few years, just get it fixed eventually.  in the mean time you can also use oil additives to help string things along, ask the rep at your local auto parts store.  hope this helps!

Your engine is toast. The black smoke indicates more than likely your valve seals are leaking oil into the combustion chamber or the piston rings are shot.

Time for a new vehicle...
