What does the exhaust smell like? Please be carefull it should only take a second or two to tell what it smells like. (either gas, sweet/antifreeze, or oil) if it is oil it is probably rings, if it is antifreeze then it could be a head-gasket, or gas (which I don't think it is) it could be a valve.

Grey or blueish smoke indicates that you are burning oil, usually a sign of worn piston rings.

Keep an eye on the oil level in the vehicle

Excessive exhaust smoke


You may have a broken ring or scored cylinder wall and piston. Have a cylinder leak down test performed to confirm this. Other causes can be a plugged crankcase ventilation system causing pressure to build in the engine, if that is the case the air cleaner box should have oil in it. The grey color of the smoke means you are burning a lot of oil.

i think you have a leak onto the exhaust pipe either oil or antifreeze but the latter is what i suspect ,ask a local mechanic to have a look as it could be a core plug corroded through .

How do you know if you have a blown head gasket


The classic signs to look for are engine over-heating with bluish-grey smoke from the exhaust pipe and it might be smoking excessively, look for coolat present in the engine oil, the engine oil will float on top of the coolant so if the engine oil is reading unusually high on the dip-stick you can loosen the engine oil drain plug just enough until it starts to drip fluid, and if that fluid is water or coolant then you might have a blown head gasket or an intake manifold leak, and if you have all of the symptoms of a head gasket without the smoke from the exhaust pipe it might just be the intake manifold.

1.9 dci no power and bluey grey smoke is coming from the exhaust


There are indeed traces of oil coming out of the exhaust. Blue smoke is burning oil. Grey or white smoke is usually coolant/water going through the engine. This can be caused by leaking head gaskets, valve guides depending on the engine, excessive blow-by, etc. Large amounts of oil are not good; and water is even worse. I would look at getting the head gasket replaced. The loss of power is because neither oil or water likes to burn, and once your engine clears it out, it probably runs ok for the rest of the day. Then I'm guessing the next morning, it comes back. This is an urgent fix, because prolonged leakage can damage the engine block, head, or both.

Grey/Whitish smoke (small amount) rising from rear of engine


Has to be a small oil leak above the exhaust header or pipe...Possibly the rear of the valve cover gasket...because the engine slopes to the rear, oil collects there, and drips off onto the exhaust. (I'm a 30 year retired British Leyland auto tech)
