Land rover smokes bad for a while when first started at about 2000 revs when holding back down hill


Engine valve oil seals might be worn! Allowing oil to seep into cylinders and burn when first started causing the smoke! Is it blue smoke?

I have not changed my oil 4 months after it was due to be changed due to $ problems.. but was still driving on it to get back and forth to work.. the engine light was on and it started smoking and the car...


Take it back to the shop and tell them it didn't get fixed. Can't help if you don't explain what was done.
What color smoke? Blue smoke is oil burning, black smoke is unburned gas out the exhaust, white smoke indicates coolant burning from a bad head gasket.
If the engine light was on, they must have scanned for trouble codes. Is the light on again? Did they give you a description of the codes?

Difficulty getting up hills.


Hi Erin, I think you should take the vehicle to have a diagnostic scan carried out very urgently. Never ignore puffs of smoke or your family may be missing you! Regards John

Hi ,, i have a 4 litre mazda t4000 ,, its a horse truck ... it blows a fair bit of black smoke when going up hills and some white smoke when i start it up ... should i worry ... thanks


The black smoke is unburnt diesel fuel- lift your foot. When I was learning to drive diesel trucks (many years ago, in one of these trucks) I was taught that when going up hill under load, I should lift off the accelerator until it just starts to die off, then give it a little bit just to hold revs. No more black smoke.

When you start it, do you let the glow plugs heat for long enough? (Does it have them? I can't remember).

check the coolant temp sensor , fuses , relay and fan for operation if electric fans

have a pressure test done on cooling system to check for cracked tanks or other leaks
