If there is white smoke coming from timing belt housing then it sounds like the tensioner is locking up and causing the belt to smoke replace tensioner and belt.!!!

you may have the timing in place but it depends on the adjustment on the timing belt there are markings that have to be set for new belt and old belt. if these are out then the engine will not start. white smoke can be caused as you have flooded the engine.or there is warter in the exhaust system.

Hi i have a 05 transporter 1.9tdi with roughly 100k makes a screech when locking left plus white smoke when starting only sometimes ,any ideas ,dont want too go too main dealer they will want my house...


like your style ,want the house ?? the left turn power screech could just be the belt needs a bit mor tension ,check the oil level first though ,now as for the white smoke on starting ,WELL IGNORE IT this is caused by the automatic excess fuel cold start device and the smoke is a light grey not white but it appears like this as you see light through it making it look white .This is normal on a cold morning it doesnt need new filters or the codes read or a tranny flush or the pigs tails brushing just leave alone ,check the steering fluid level use ATF to top up or hydraulic oil then if still screeches tighten the belt unless its a one big one in whick case it may need a new tensioner or just leave it alone its not a major problem as yet .Must tell the other mechanics in the pueblo this morning as we congregate in marias bar for brekkie and coffee and tell tall tales but this one will take the biscuit thats for sure .

Car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving


Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.

Make sure the coolant is full, then change the coolant sensor near the thermostat housing. This will put the car into advanced timing mode again. Do not over torque the sensor. 14ft.lbs or less as needed to stop seapage. Good luck!

Hi,

Sounds typical of head gasket failure.

With this you get oil into cylinders / water into cylinders, burning oil, loosing water - but no leaks. "boiling" of radiator and overflows.

Check your coolant and oil levels - they will be low.

Get a few quotes for a head gasket replacement - and timing belt change, as it has to come off when you do this anyway & no sense putting an old one on - they often snap if retensioned.

If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! thanks.
