Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My G/H 722D has little power and is putting out white smoke, no water in oil or oil in water. I think it's the injecters. Maybe the injecters pump. What do you think?

SOURCE: Lexus ES300 White smoke out the exhaust no milky substance in oil

It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).

SOURCE: white smoke and oil goes frum muffler

White smoke can be several things, the first of which depending on the temperature is condensation while another is coolant leaking into the combustion chamber or oil though oil will give the smoke a blueish tint. Oil drops in the exhaust is not normal and is a sign that there is an oil leak into the combustion chamber(s) possibly resulting from a leaking gasket or a cracked head/block/manifold. It is possible that you may have both coolant and oil leaking and you can check by first looking at the dipstick to see if there is any light brown or white foam on the dipstick. You can also check the radiator after it has cooled to see if your missing any coolant and if there is any oil in there. Another thing to do is start pulling the spark plugs one at a time and checking to see if one or more is either covered in oil or is noticeably clean and shiny, oily is obvious while clean indicates coolant.

Additives such as restore will not solve your problem neither will stop leaks which are nothing more than bandaids for bullet wounds so it would be best to get your vehicle checked out by a reputable mechanic or shop.

How much injector oil pressure should I have with just starter spinning over no crank and pours white smoke out exhaust


Here's you some info from a ford manual.
you can use any scan tool that will rear ICP pressure and RPM. you need at least 100 RPM while cranking.

Check oil level and quality first. if its low, it may not start, if it's old it may aerate easily(mix with air easily)

If the smoke is white/gray and smells like raw diesel, you possibly have a stuck open/Leaking Injector, Leaking injector O-Ring Seal. A failed glow plug system, can make white smoke as I am unsure of the cranking temp. if it is Blue/White there may be a compression ring issue.

A note on 7.3L injectors!!!! ALL of the Injectors are the same EXCEPT #8 (Last one on the Driver's side) It is a "Cackle" Injector. It looks the same but is slightly different. It even has a different part number in our Ford Catalog.

I hope that helps you let me know if you need anymore info.

Tools Required:
New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent

9c. Monitor ICP While Cranking (min 500 psi @100 RPM)
Purpose:
To determine if the injection control system can supply enough injection control pressure to sustain starting.
much-injector-oil-pressure-just-starter-ccu5ej1tcfbj3pe04s4es3xr-4-0.gif


Recommended Procedure:
Install NGS Tester. Access ICP and IPR PIDs on NGS Tester, and monitor PID readings while cranking the engine.
Note: CMP signal is required before IPR is commanded above 14%.
If ICP does not meet the minimum specification of 3450 kPa (500 psi), the injectors will not be enabled by the PCM because of insufficient rail pressure.
If IPR goes above 14%, ICP pressure should easily go above 3.4 MPa (500 psi) provided that the oil reservoir is full, the IPR valve is not stuck open, the high pressure pump is building pressure and there is not an injection control pressure leak between the high pressure pump and all of the injectors.
Possible Causes:
  • Injection control pressure system leak
  • Oil reservoir level low
  • IPR failure (sticking open)
  • Faulty high pressure pump
  • Injector O-ring leaking

White Smoke Coming from Engine?


It sounds like you need a good mechanic to fix your oil leaks. It's probably the valve cover gasket leaking oil on the cylinder head and it's running down on the hot exhaust manifold.

White smoke coming out exhaust


If the smoke is only when you first start it I would be looking at your valve stem oil seals, this is no serious problem to your driving and with the right gear and knowledge can be changed in car . But if your smoke is more constant than the story changes, your oil control rings have failed and this needs an engine overhaul. 2 things you need to remember is fuel burns black, oil burns white and head gaskets show visible problems, water or air leaks both external and internal so your mechanic may be correct

White smoke coming from engine and exaust.


I'd have to see it in person. A small amount of coolant in the cylinders can make a big cloud of white smoke. So a head gasket or intake gasket could be leaking but yet be tough to find. If you start loosing coolant you'll know. Meanwhile I would probably not drive it very far from home for a few days/weeks.
Keep in mind, if it is very cold where you are, regular water in the exhaust is going to cause "fog" out the exhaust.

Ford focus tdci white smoke problems


What happening is you have a bad head gasket or its starting to go bad. As long a little oil is getting in to cylinders causing that smoke once it warms up that gasket is expanding thus the smoke stops. I would keep an eye on oil levels if it gets milky replace gasket asap. Could also be intake gasket but highly doubt it this sounds like a worn head gasket.

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after warming up it stops smoking.


The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

We have a 3.2 DiD Misubishi Pajero and I think the injector pump is playing up. The car has just started surge and run rough and then starts to smoke like to much diesel is getting into the motor white...


You generally only get white fuel smoke from a diesel when one or more cylinders aren't firing. If it were injecting more fuel than can be burned into a cylinder that is firing you'd get black smoke. You can get gray smoke from a cylinder that is firing cold or late, but blue obnoxious smoke is more common with late injector pump timing. Dirty/failed injectors also generally make a rude blue smoke.

Run a can of Diesel Kleen through it. If you can't get it where you are call a local truck service and ask what they recommend for cleaning the pump.

Check and keep watch on the oil and coolant- white smoke from a warmed up diesel is usually coolant that is getting into the combustion chamber, typically from a failed head gasket or cracked head/block.

If you see any oil floating on the surface of the coolant, or if the oil starts to look milky, this motor must be serviced and the issue found or it won't last long.

White smoke suggests to me that your brake master cylinder may be leaking into your booster and the diaphragm may be split, thus allowing brake fluid into the engine.
