What do you think about my suzuki multicab with lots of white smoke and sometimes the smell a burning of clutch?


White smoke usually means burning coolant in combustion chamber and lots of it is not good. Check for oil in radiator coolant reservoir. If oil is present your engine is bad.

5.3l. Why does it sometimes smoke a lot during morning start up?


Most likely bad valve guides if the smoke is derived from oil. This would require a cylinder head job. If the smoke is white, then most likely a stuck/leaking fuel injector. If it is gray could be leaking coolant into combustion chambers also most likely requiring cylinder head rebuild.

My Ford Windstorm Has White Smoke Coming Out Of Exhaust,ConstanLy,Thick White smoke


White smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. This can be from condensation in the muffler, but that type of smoke usually dissipates after a minute or two of running. Constant, thick white smoke is usually a sign of water leakage into the combustion chamber(s), either via a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block.

With a petrol engine, water/coolant is being burnt due to blown head gasket.

White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

My 1984 corvette crossfire v8 smokes wnen stated a puf of white smoke sometimes just a little sometimes a lot but runs great


it could be a lite blue colour that looks white,if so then the car is burning a little oil,the valve seals are probably dried out and allowing small amounts of oil to be drawn into the combustion chamber past the seal and valve guides when the car sits and when started up the oil gets burned in the combustion chamber.if its white smoke then it could be a small head gasket coolant leak.

the head gaskets need to be replaced. take a look in the radiator and check for oil. check the oil dipstick for "milk chocolate".

2007 Nissan Altima - smoke from tailpipe


It sounds normal white smoke comes from moisture in the air as it's burned and the air temprature is different. it creates steam they gray smoke is a little harder to decide what it is, normally gray smoke is related to oil burning and black is over fuel, depending on how many miles it has on it it could have bad valve guide seals but would not worry about it.

A lot of smoke


What I write probably will not solve your problem, at least not immediately, however, this is not all ways possible with every car repair. What I write is the truth. During my automotive career I was a factory trained Peuguot technician, so I speak with a little certainty.

A lot of smoke can have several implications, and I will address the most basic first.

Whether you can do it yourself or have someone else do it, you need to have a compression test made on the cylinders. This is a test that will check both the piston rings and valves.

For example, a low compression reading can mean worn piston rings, which can cause excessive oil burning. This condition would show up as white smoke.

Another condition that would show up as white smoke is water getting mixed with the oil. Both of the conditions I just mentioned would also come with a loss of power.

Unfortunately, there aren't many cheap little fixes that can solve problems, much to the customers demise. Please do remember, the most direct route to any problem is a correct diagnosis, whatever that may be.


If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
