I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

When i start white smokes comes out why


mine does the same thing.. it is a sign that you are burning oil kiddo..either that or antifreeze is finding its way into the engine through a crack or bad gasket.. check for oil smell and moist soot at the tailpipe, or a sweet smell if antifreeze..now if its a steam like smoke..thats normal byproduct of the burning fuel and goes away once the exhaust pipes and muffler heat up enough to blow out all the condensate water...

I have a Mitsubishi challenger 2.8 turbo diesel Which just started smoking and when I leave sometimes the level counter is not picking up causing excessive smoke from the exhaust pipe.I don`t know what...


What is a "level counter"? I am not familiar with this terminology.
What colour is the smoke from your tailpipe? White: possible coolant leak/head gasket failure. Blue: Possibly running too rich or burning oil. Black: Burning oil

While my tail pipe blows out white smoke


Whatever you do, do NOT continue driving it this way until it is fixed. Hydraulic lockup can bend a piston rod ot even detonate the engne.
I think it got so hot at one point that it blew a head gasket.
Have a qualified mechanic perform a cooling system Pressure check.
If it holds pressure, which I doubt, it may be antifreeze running into your cylinders from he intake manifold. But the pressure test should tell you which head gasket it is, but have BOTH replaced, since they both underwent the stress.AND while replacing those gaskets, a new intake gasket will be installed too, as a matter of course. The price is about the same, since they have the top of the engine apart anyway. Just for information: White "smoke" is vaporized coolant or water being pushed out the tailpipe from the engine. Blue "Smoke" is oil, and Black "smoke" is soot- too much unburned fuel.

I ran my chev. 1990 pickup out of oil and now it smokes so bad. and i think my fuel pump is going out but not sure??


Sounds like you may have ruined the piston rings and this is allowing oil to seep in to the combustion chamber hence your smoke. Or if it overheated when you ran out of oil it is possible that you have a bad head gasket now. Check both your coolant and oil for signs, oil will have a white froth, or darkening of your coolant. Hope that helps you.

Smoke out of tailpipe on startup


ask a question. White, blue, black? its most likely steam on this new of a car. nothing to worry about. if blue, its burning oil, blue on start up is leaky valve seals, black on startup is leaky injectors, real white smoke (tons will come out) not steam, is blown head gasket or cracked head/block
