2005 IMPALA SMOKES AT START UP


What color is the smoke? The valve seals may be bad. Thus oil leaks into the combustion chamber, and will cause the engine to smoke. Or it could be getting to much fuel at start up. Just let us know what color the smoke is and we can help you a little better.

Excessive exhaust smoke on the first start of the day


Sounds like the valve guides are leaking oil into the cylinders, or there is a coolant leak somewhere. Usually white smoke is coolant but could be oil.
Are you adding either fluid often ?

I just bought this tempo it starts but after i have been driving for about 20 min it starts to smoke and it starts to get hot it stops then you hav eto get a jump to start it.


It sounds like you have brought a lemon as if it hard to start when cold then its lacking compression which is worn engine piston rings and valve guides,and if it starts smoking when driving and if its BLUE smoke then its bad piston rings And if its BLACK smoke then its to much petrol getting into the engine which will also cause the engine to wear out quick as its washing the bores with fuel instead of oil,and that will also stop the engine from starting when hot,
SO if its BLUE smoke replace the engine
If BLACK smoke repair fuel fault.

How much should my Ford ranger 2.5td be smoking,is it normal for diesel engens to smoke.


Sometimes diesel engines will put out black smoke under extreme acceleration. Other than that, they shouldn't smoke. Black is excess fuel, White smoke is water and bluish is oil. White smoke on a cool morning is not necessarily a sign of a problem unless it happens every time you start it through a warm day. Hope this helps.

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?


state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.

Smoke problem


hey
there are couple of smoke type.blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
