SOURCE: Excessive exhaust smoke

i suspect you are leaking coolant into the combustion chamber, it may be a head gasket, get it checked

SOURCE: have excessive blue or white

Hi,
is it a diesel or gas engine?
Usually excessive blue smoke on start up indicates oil is getting into the combustion chamber. It could be piston rings or valve seals.
Quick check, drive it within operating range and speed. Either use the rear view mirror or get someone to drive it and you follow in another vehicle. Accelerate, then take your foot of the accelerator. Blue smoke under acceleration indicates piston rings / pistons. Blue smoke on deceleration or the "over-run" indicates worn valve guides / seals.

White smoke can indicate coolant in the combustion chambers / leaking cyl head gskt, or incorrect fueling. If brake fluid gets into the combustion chamber it will generate a lot of white smoke from the exhaust. However, that would entail a leaking brake master cyl and a leaking brake booster.

Good luck.

Isuzu 3000/Diesel/Turbo/Wizard, I can see a bit of Oil coming from Intake/ThroughBody direct to the Turbo & there also a White Smoke from the exhaust + Misfiring and the car is not pooling as uses to be......


Turbo shaft oil seal is probably leaking a little bit, though not ideal it isn't unusual and not particularly detrimental (mostly).

The white smoke indicates either a water or coolant ingress into the combustion chamber or an excess fuel condition. A small fuel excess usually results in a increasingly dark smoke, grey to sooty black and sometimes an increased diesel knock but large amounts of excess fuel results in white smoke which is unburned fuel.
This is often the result when the fuel injectors are sticking, dribbling, leaking and misfiring could also be a further symptom. Bad starting could be caused by several things needing attention but poor injector performance can be a major factor.

I suggest you have the injectors removed and tested.

Excessive white smoke from tail pipe


White smoke:

White smoke is caused by raw, un-burnt fuel passing into the exhaust stream. Common causes include:
·Incorrect fuel injection timing
·Defective fuel injectors
·Low cylinder compression

Low cylinder compression may be caused by leaking valves, sticking piston rings, ring wear, cylinder wear, or cylinder glaze. When white smoke occurs at cold start and then disappears as the engine warms up, the most common causes are fouling deposits around piston rings and/or cylinder glazing.
Continuous evidence of white smoke indicates a mechanical defect, or incorrect fuel timing.

I'm looking to purchase a used car. I've been doing online research and saw this webpage http://www.usedcarsmells.com . They talk about exhaust color and smells. Is it true that you could tell a lot about...


Yes this is correct, you can get important information from the colour of smoke from the exhaust:

Blue/Gray Smoke: Blue/gray exhaust smoke is an indication of oil burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible symptoms and causes:
Valve Seals: Leaking valve seals will cause blue/gray smoke at startup because oil leaks past the seals into the cylinder after the engine shuts down.
Valve Guides: Excessive clearance between the valve stem and the valve guide allows oil to leak past the gap into the cylinder.
Piston Rings: Worn or damaged piston rings will cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Worn Cylinder Walls: Worn cylinder walls cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
PCV System: A stuck closed PCV valve will cause excessive crankcase pressure resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Black Smoke: Black exhaust smoke is an indication of a rich fuel condition. These are possible causes:
Fuel Injectors: A leaking or dripping fuel injector will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Pressure Regulator: A stuck closed fuel pressure regulator will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Return: A restricted fuel return line will cause a rich fuel condition.
White/Gray Smoke: White exhaust smoke is an indication that coolant is burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible causes:
Cylinder Head: A crack in the cylinder head (around the coolant jacket) will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Engine Block: A crack in the deck of an engine block near the coolant jacket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Head Gasket: A damaged or blown head gasket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber resulting in white/gray smoke coming from the tailpipe.

When i start my 2000 chevy tracker


White Smoke is usually Coolant out the
Exhaust --from a Bad Head Gasket
(Keep eye on coolant level)

You can get some white smoke just on start up-- from
excess fuel
(Check fuel trim & exhaust gas readings& leaking injectors)

Toyota Caldina 1999, too smoke from exhaust


if it is diesel and you have black smoke you need fuel injectors either serviced or replaced also you must check the engine valves clearance. If your smoke is blue white smelling unburned fuel renew injectors.If it is blue white smelling oil and diesel then you will have piston rings and valve steam seals.

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 ?

Excess smoke


The general rule: white-ish smoke indicates coolant in the exhaust, meaning a blown head gasket, whereas darker smoke indicates motor oil in the exhaust, which means that one (or more) cylinders have a broken ring, and the engine needs a ring job.
Fix for white smoke: replace head gasket.
Fix for black smoke: ring job.

I have a 2001 Chevy 3500. Sometimes when I drive it white/grey smoke comes out the exhaust. Other times it drives normal. Any help


sounds like you have an injector going out it usually starts dumping excess fuel on occasion causing excessive smoke you will have to have it diagnosed to pinpoint the cylinder causing the issue
