Sounds like a motor mount is bad. does the motor kick back hard when putting in drive or reverse? if so you need to change the bad motor mount.

Why is it that my multicab sometimes emits white smoke and gone after a minute and with burned engine oil smell?


Blue smoke is oil,white smoke steam or trans mission fluid. Check that auto fluid not going up a vacuum line if it has a modulator.

My car is jerking. It's a 2003 ford tarus. It also


Open the hood and find the source of the smoking. Check all the engine fluids-the oil level (and appearance-is it clean?) and the coolant level. If low on either, you may have a leak that is causing the smoking. The fluid may be dripping on the hot exhaust. Also check the transmission fluid and add if low. That may be the reason for the jerking. The hissing hose sound is usually a disconnected or broken vacuum line. That would not be causing the smoking, however. Just may make the engine run a bit rough, and the idle speed may be a bit higher than normal.
If the smoking has a burnt electrical smell, better have a shop check it out.

Dodge caravan 2001 blowing burning power steering fluid.


I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

Smoke coming from the hood check engine light


Someone else's code may not help you as the light could come on for a number of reasons. Smoke under your hood could be due to a leak or leaks such as oil, coolant, power steering fluid and so on and as the engine gets hot the fluids will burn off on the hot engine or exhaust causing it to smoke. The smell when you turn the heat on could be because your heater core is leaking. This would be accompanied with low coolant levels, overheating and low heat especially at idle also the carpet may be wet. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter the smell could also come from there as leaves and other debris and sometimes even rodents can get in there. Also if you don't allow you evaporator to dry by shutting off the ac but letting the fan run for a couple of minutes the water on the evaporator can cause mold and mildew to grow giving you a funny smell as well. Hope this helps.

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after warming up it stops smoking.


The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

I've changed the oxygen sensor and the O2 sensor and new plugs on my 97 dondge 3.9 van and it still blowen black smoke (rich) seems to run real good on top end but theres is a flat spot where theres no...


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.

Rubber smell and slight smoke


a rubber smell?? the best thing you can do is diagnose it properly by blocking it up high enough of the ground and let it smoke then slide yourself under there and see where it originates ... check for witness drip marks on the exhaust first??

sounds like oil leaking on the exhaust, this can be engine oil or power steering fluid, have the car put up in the air and checked, this can cause a fire if not repaired.

First thing to check is the transmission fluid. Check it with the trans hot, the engine running, and the trans in "park". Smell the fluid while you check it and look at the color. It should be bright red with no burnt smell. This is usually the cause of most "slipping" problems and loss of Over Drive.
