If it's white smoke, the head gasket is blown
If it's blue smoke, major problem, valve and piston and ring job.

It could also be the lower pan gasket on the bottom side of intake manifold. Need to R&R intake and replace lower pan gasket.

Hi I got a Toyota corolla 160i gle and it was parked very long so wen i started it wen ideling no smoke BT wen hit da fuel it smokes and on take off BT wen driving it does nt smoke


Generally, it may smoke on startup for a few seconds then quit and seem to run fine, then you hit the gas and it smokes again, so Is it white smoke gray smoke or blue smoke? Because IMO it's either a bad head gasket, bad valve guides, rings are going bad ot dumping to much fuel into carb or injectors.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

6.9 litre diesel losing power over last few days of driving, changed fuel filter no difference,cannot get enough speed up to allow trany to shift, bogging bad. and blowing blue when reved, not black....


Blue smoke is oil. With blue smoke and no power you should take the truck to a diesel reair shop to have it looked at. It could be that the valves need adjusting or it could be broken rings or a cracked piston, all of which are beyond the scope of online diagnosis. With a diagnosis in hand, you should pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330. It can help if you think you want to attempt the repairs yourself. Hope this helps.

2001 Saturn,blows Blue smoke only when ideling


It likely has worn out or hardened valve seals in the head(s). Oil is leaking into the cylinders through these seals. I'd try a seal softening agent in the oil before doing a valve job. Check your local auto supply for such stuff. A good mechanic can replace the seals without tearing off the heads.
