You may have a gasket leaking oil to the engine cylinders. Once you got it started the oil burned off and the engine will run fine until the next time....
Unfortunately, on this car, it a VERY expensive problem to get fixed.
If the problem occurs again, be careful not to flood the engine. Try to get it running again, and take it in for a professional estimate and repair.

Engine started and was smoking very bad but wouldn't stay started now it won't start at all but will turn over.


The engine was smoking very badly? Was any smoke coming out of the tailpipe? If not, either the exhaust manifold is broken or off the vehicle, or the exhaust pipe is broken, has a hole in it, or it is completely missing! Is it really loud?

You SAID the engine was smoking. But if you said that in error, then perhaps the exhaust system is okay, but oil is getting into the cylinders. Check for a PCV (positive crankcase ventilator) valve that may not be working right. Another thing that can make heavy smoke come out of tailpipes is a head gasket leak, with antifreeze getting into the cylinder chambers. How is the oil level and the coolant level? If there is that much smoke, it is advisable to not drive the vehicle for any reason except an emergency!

2005 Lincoln Navigator stopped running, had oil but is now 3 quarts low. Suggestions?


IT BURNED THE THREE QUARTS OUT THE TAILPIPE IN BLUE SMOKE. CHECK THE PVC. OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD AND LOOK FOR THE PROPER COLOR OF THE COOLANT. SPARK PLUGS ARE FOULED BY OIL

I have a 2002 ford explorer sport trac. My truck ran fine yesterday but this morning I went to start it & it started ran for about 5 seconds then died I did this 4 or 5 times then my son noticed some...


Check your fuel pressure, there are Relays to check. Sometimes the pump is so weak that it delivers enough to start the engine and can not keep up. It is also built to shut down the fuel if the engine dies.

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump run. As for the smoke, with the automatic shut-offs occurring, there is moisture and incomplete combustion gases leaving the tailpipe.

97 BUICK LESABRE WILL NOT START CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES AND WHITE SMOKE COMING OUT FROM TAILPIPE


Check to see if the coolant is low in the radiator. If it is than you probably had a rupture in the plastic intake plenum. Really common. If you pull the plenum and there is a bunch of coolant underneath than you will need to replace it. There is a coolant passage around the egr tube. After years of high temps from the egr tube the plastic weekens and finally ruptures. The aftermarket (dorman) plenums are reinforced in this area along with an updated egr tube. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Black smoke from exhaust, rough idle, black soot on plugs


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator-- the vehicle will run rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the mornings,) many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure. 1- black soot on plugs-2-black smoke from tailpipe-3- running rough-4- stalling, good-day! repost if need be.

Will fuel regulator cause 2001 grand am 2.4 cyclinder run ruff with a slight engine knock at idle. And cause engine to shut off at hight speed.


No it will not, you need to have the knocking sound checked out, it could be rod bearing, or timing chain tensioner, both will damage engine, also need to check fuel pressure and ignition coil packs.

Puffing white smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket. Coolant is getting into the cylinders.
