    I think it's a sensor that allows it to get to much fuel while idling

Is it smoke or steam thats coming out the tail pipe? Are you loosing coolant or overheating? It sounds like a classic head gasket problem to me. If it smells like gas it may be a bad FPR and what you are seeing is unburnt fuel vapour. If that is the problem, it is a cheap and simple fix.if not it might be head gasket problem only

Will only stay running on revs over 2000rpm if I take foot of peddle it cuts out also white smoke from exhaust


What is year--make--model?
Are you losing coolant? The white smoke may be coolant in the combustion cylinder, possibly caused by a head gasket problem. If head gasket problem, fix that first.

With idle issues, clean/check anything that has to do with idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes?

White smoke on idle still


I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS, BUT A WHITISH LIGHT BLUE SMOKE IS NOT YOUR VALVE SEALS....IT IS YOUR PISTON RINGS. IF YOU REV YOUR ENGINE, AND MAKES MORE SMOKE, IT IS DEFINITELY YOUR RINGS.

Idles rough and smokes when first stated


Worn valve guides allow oil to drain into the cylinders, causes blue smoke, fouled plugs will idle rough.
Coolant in the cylinders from a blown head gasket will cause white smoke.

Bakkie smoking white smoke.Starting quick idles.When hot smoke gets less but still smoking a lot


White smoke is coolant burning. Do a compression test, to see if you have a blown head gasket.

Smokes when idling


general rule of thumb, metal expands when warm, Blue smoke is oil, white smoke is either A: water in your exhaust, B: excessive fuel
If you have white whispy smoke any time you idle, i would be checking your catalic converter, If you have blue smoke on idle at the time of start till your motor warms up id suggest it would be one or more piston rings with slight wear (normally first sign of serious wear) generally you can tell oil smoke by the colour and the smell. it will smell rather burnt and will be obnoxious. if it is white then its more than likely "steam" and of course carbon monoxide, so it should generally disapate very quickly. which is usually ur catalic converter or in some cases more serious the first sign of a blown head gasket as you get coolant (or anti-freeze) leaking into the combustion chamber. that can be pressure tested by ur local mechanic.
I hope this has helped cheers

Car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving


Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.

Rough idle(200-300RPM)off idle runs great no white smoke


Have you changed your fast idle valve or air idel control valve I would change the air idle valve because it is the one with an electric sensor.
