If you have a carburettor, then the float needle valve is sticking or faulty.. The carb is flooding overnight and draining down through the cylinders.

Why would the transmission blowback from where you put the transmission fluid in


The most likely scenario is that it is foaming or is overfull.

Are you checking the oil level when the motor and trans are warm/ hot, the car is idling on a level surface? If you are adding trans fluid when the car is off and cold you are very likely overfilling it . If you are checking the oil level when the vehicle is idleing and warm and it is still blowing out of the dip stick tube , then check what the transfluid looks and smells like. It should be pink to light red and not smell "burnt".

Let the vehicle cool off, ( overnight) . Pull the stick and see if there is anything on the stick. If not, add fluid until it is just on the tip of the stick. If when cold the oil is on the stick, has a good appearance and is any where near the fill lines proceed to next step. If the oil is above the fill and full lines it is overfull and will foam up in operation. The excess oil must be drained.
Start the car and allow it to idle until it is warm. Pull the trans stick back out and see where the oil is on the stick. When warm and idling it should be in the area between add and full. if it's over those lines when warm, it's over full and needs to be drained to the correct level.

If the oil has a milky appearance it is contaminated with water or other substance; you need to take the car for service. It is likely the coolant from the radiator and the oil cooler for the trans have been leaking by contaminating each other. Both systems will need to be completely cleaned and the source of the leak will need to be fixed before the car is used again.

White smoke from BMW 740i exhaust


white were? the exhaust tip, or other spot, long pipe, name spot?
white, is steam or OIL.
oil smells like burnt oil and takes for ever to dispate
steam is water, and smells , sweet due to 50% glycol inside.
and goes away fast.
but all Gas engines make water at all the time running as a by product of combustion and for sure on cold days, some times full time cold
due to climate effects.
does your neighbors car smoke at same time, (look)
bingo , dew point.

all gas engine smoke cold started, (steam)

so first find out what it is,
take the dip stick out of a hot engine. stalled, drip it on the exhaust
see that smoke ,smell it? that is burning oil
now you know what you have, steam or oil. smoke.

Why does the van smell like gas when i come to a stop


If the engine is buring oil, it usually smells like burned toast. Check the oil level on the dipstick to see if the oil is low (add oil as needed to bring it back up to the full mark. DO NOT let the engine oil level get too low or serious engine damage will result!. Do a compression check or leak down test to diagnose worn pistons or rings. The underlying cause may be worn or broken piston rings, worn or damaged cylinders, worn valve guide or valve guide seals. A PVC valve could also be at fault leaking oil into the intake.

Peugeot 207 oil level increase


Check to see if gas is getting into the oil which would raise the level. This can happen from flooding, i.e. a leaky injector dumping too much gas or possibly gas blowby past the piston rings and ending up in crankcase. If gas is in the oil most likely an injector is bad. Smell the oil and check to see if it smells like gas and or check viscosity of oil.. thin oil

Looks and smells like gas in the oil. The oil level is high on the dipstick and very thin. Think its the fuel pressure regulator?


Unlikely it's the regulator causing fuel to be dumped into your oil. A stuck open or leaking fuel injector would dump fuel into your oil.

Where is the transmission dipstick in my manual 1.3 liter 1993 suzuki swift located and where do i fill it up?


LEVEL CHECK With Oil Level Gauge Fig. 1: Manual transaxle oil level check - with level gauge 84241046.gif
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. With the engine stopped, remove the oil level gauge front the side case of the transaxle.
  3. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  4. Wipe off oil level gauge with clean cloth.
  5. Fit the oil level gauge to the transaxle side case so that the threads rest on top of the case.
  6. Remove the gauge and check oil level. The level should be between FULL and LOW level line.
  7. If the level is below LOW mark, add oil until the proper level is reached.
With Oil Level/Filler Plug
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the transaxle oil level/filler plug.
  4. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  5. Transaxle oil level should be even with the bottom of the plug hole. If oil level is low, adjust oil level accordingly.
  6. Install transaxle oil level/filler plug and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  7. Lower the vehicle.

My car will turn over till the battery dies but will not start. when it is trying to start air comes out the tail pipe but it smells like gas and i can take off the oil filler cap and it smells like gas....


Sounds like it is getting plenty of gas. First off check to see if the fuel regulator is bad either with a pressure gauge or pull the vacume line off and see if gas is seeping out, if it is theres your problem. Replace it. Pull out the plugs and let it set overnight and evaporate the gas in the cylinders. In that time get the battery to full charge. Put new plugs in it and it should start. Do not drive the car with all of that gas in the oil. It will wash the bearings and ruin the engine. CHANGE THE OIL AND FILTER. This is just a start and most common problem with these

Engine smells like rubber burning and temperature gauge at normal temperature. Water/coolant leaking out of reservoir and needs to be filled ever 2 days. Oil level is normal, but when it's hot outside the...


Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.

It is a problem with engine oil level. This can affect EPC light. NEVER you must fill up engine oil above the "max" mark of the oil dipstick !!! If oil level is above "max" there is risk of damage to Three Way Catalitic Converter !!! You must bring oil level at "max" mark of dipstick, but under no condition above !!!
