check your antifreeze if it isn't mixing then the piston rings could be broken and it is getting burned in the cylinder but most likely a blown head gasket and its mixing with your coolant

2005 3.5l some times smokes oil then stops


Smoke oil? For what your thinking that is oil? Smoke coming from the tailpipe is not good news, but does not necessarily mean the engine needs rebuilding. First, you need to determine what color of smoke is coming from the tailpipe
* White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area.
* Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe.
* Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm.


If you confirm us that is oil smoke, check and keep in mind that the car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

TRUCK STALLS AND IS SPITTING OUT OIL FROM MUFFLER


If your oil is coming out your tailpipe your engine is burning it. Most likely the piston rings are worn and need replaced. That means rebuilding the engine and cost is going to be in the thousands. Probably between $2000-2500 for a re-ring job. You need to check if it is oil, or carbon/water. Take your finger and wipe the inside of the tailpipe. Is it slippery like oil, or gritty like water and carbon? If it is just carbon then it is no big deal.

Emits smoke little blue when stats and stops after


So upon startup the car has a little smoking going out the tailpipe? Then it goes away after the car warms up a little? You probably have stuck piston rings and are burning oil at first until the car warms up and the rings seal better. What kind of oil are you using? What weight is it? I don't know what is in the car, but if it is conventional oil at 10w-30, try changing it to synthetic and using 5w-30. I don't know what that car comes with from factory or calls for, but in my experience I've stopped oil burning in a piston engine with thinner, synthetic oil. This helps to unstick the rings allowing them to seal better AND the thinner oil doesn't collect on the rings so much, keeping it from burning or going out the tailpipe. Also, synthetic doesn't burn and carbonize like convention oil (dinosaur juice) does.

I really hope I understood your problem and helped you with it. If not, please clarify. Good luck!

Smoke and water from tailpipe


That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps

Overheating


I think you have made a correct diagnosis. The loss of power and water from exhaust all point that way.
