Most stop leaks and smoke reducers do very little to help, all they contain, is extremely heavy oil, mixed with chemicals that contain "swelling agents" that are supposed to help slow minor leaks by making the rubber gaskets swell up and stop leaking. Thicker oil, in that small motor, in the winter is not a good mix. In the winter when you first start your car there is some metal to metal contact until the oil pump in your car can circulate the oil where it needs to go. If the oil is too thick in the winter, it will take extra time for the oil to get where it needs too, and its going to make your problem worse. The reason you have smoke coming out the exhaust is because oil is leaking into the combustion chamber, which isn't good, that is where the gasoline is suppose to detonate, thus powering your motor. Your Neon is not a performance V-8, I would worry that your oil is made too thick, and that in my experience that stuff doesn't really do that great a job, it will work for maybe a couple weeks, but once again, it depends on how bad your having smoke and leaks. The only car additives I recommend are Marvel Mystery Oil, and Seafoam, they are cleaners, and I have performed many miracles with them. I would recommend getting your car to a mechanic in the very near future. Good Luck!

Can I use Bardahl NoSmoke on a diesel motor?


No. If a diesel is smoking, it's usually due to low compression or leaking injectors. Diagnose the reason the engine smokes.

Smell of coolant and smoking


smoke from exhaust could be cracked head or blown head gasket but normally when one of these two things happen it runs crappy if it runs at all smoke from under the hood you may have a pin hole in your radiator or hose or even heater core put some stop leak in it watch for puddle of anti-freeze under the hood and on the ground keep a close eye on your tempature gage and a close eye on you anti-freeze levels and dont add fluid when the motor is hot this will crack your heads good luck.

How do i stop car from smoking


I'm assuming you mean smoke from the exhaust pipe. That depends.....white smoke or black smoke? Black smoke = oil burning. That would be due to engine wear and mean internal work needed. White smoke = coolant. Impalas had problems with the lower intake gasket leaking internally or externally as a result of the DexCool coolant breaking down the gasket. Replacement of the intake gaskets is the fix for that problem.

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.
