If the smoke is blue, it's burning oil
The cause could be the valve guides are worn letting oil seep into the cylinder, head gasket, or worn piston rings.
If the smoke is white, it's a blown head gasket.

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.

Smoke engines


Smokes can be of three colors.
1. White smoke.
Excessive white smoke reveals presence of water in fuel, thermostat valve stuck open, or burnt cylinder head gasket.
2. Black smoke.
Black smoke could be observed due to the unburnt fuel or higher percentage of Hydrocarbons during the combustion process, defective regulating valve, ruptured PCV valve, low fuel pump pressure, defective charcoal canister, ruptured or leaking fuel injectors.
3. Blue smoke.
Blue smoke reveals the engine failure.

Black smoke indicates no air, check your air filter, if you have done that and it is ok, check the PCV valve. Thats about all that I can suggest. Hope that helps.

Car smoke white when idle and nothing when driving


Engine also smokes when car driving if turbocharger still faulty. Did you change the engine timing belt (the timing belt kit) meantime? What about engine oil consumption? When engine glow plugs (one or more) burnt then engine exhausts white smoke at idling. Also white smoke at engine idling when water is still present in diesel fuel.

White smoke when starting the engine. the engine


This is probably just condensation in the exhaust, if you are not loosing coolant that would be me guess.

00 ford focus wagon a/c & engine smoke problem


Engine smoke problem-- Automatic, chk transmodulator. If oil in vacuum line, modulator is defective. Engine sucking up trans fluid. 10.00 fix . good indicator is smoking at cruising speed or deceleration.
Bad rings smoke under acceleration and bad valve guides smoke on deceleration. poor crankcase ventilation (pcv valve) will cause engine leaks and oil blowing out of dipstick. Good Luck

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?


state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.
