If its smoking that bad you should be able to tell if its oil or antifreeze by the smell, stand behind the car as its running, if its white and you smell a sweet smell its antifreeze if its blue and smells like a oil refinery its oil.

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

Do i need head gasket


there are about 8 tests to prove this. and lots of signs.
1: fails compression test.
2: water in engine oil.
3: carbon and oil floating top of RAD filler hole. cap off dead cold
4: constant need for adding AF.
5: steam out tail pipe end, hot engine, fully hot.
6:rad leak down tester fails.
7:the rad blue green tester fails. proves exhaust gasses in RAD.
8: air (seemingly) blasting in to side expansion tank, (combustion gasses actual)
9: engine over heat. and pings. and loss of power.

ill stop here, there are more.

Blue smoke out of tail pipe and rich smell when running? 1999 dodge intrepid 2.7ltr


That engine is known to collect gunk in the oil system. That makes it hard for oil to get to the areas necessary, and causes engine wear. It sounds like that happened here. You might consider replacing that engine with the 3.3, which doesn't have that reputation.
The rich smell is probably just the computer trying to compensate for the oil getting past the rings/valves.

BLACK SMOKE AND MY TAIL PIPE IT IS MIXED WITH OIL


If you are adding oil to the engine I would say the rings or valve guides are worn out. Could also be a problem with the PCV valve.
Black smoke is usually too much fuel, blue smoke is usually burning oil.

BLACK SMOKE COMING OUT OF TAIL PIPE OF A 1992 DODGE RAM B250


is it a gas engine or a diesel? it could mean two different things depending on the fuel type. black smoke in a diesel is either an air of a fuel problem. in a gas truck there should never be black smoke. it may be a dark blue smoke which is burning oil.

Why does my 1999 dodge 2500 4x4 ping real bad after it has been warmed up for a while and seems to be burning alot of oil? I have tried using premium gas but this does not help at all. I am adding at least...


If you see blue smoke comning out of the tail pipe that means your engine is burning oil and there is no way to control that other then replacing the engine itself.

I have a 1998 dodge avenger it runs and starts right up but it has a raddling sound ,thick white smoke comming from my tail pipe and oil all over my motor what does it sound like ? A blown head gasket ,...


White smoke from the tail pipe is caused by moisture in the engine being burned off. Some is normal on a cold engine but the rattle and amount of smoke you describe are a sure sign of a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the cylinders.

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.
