SOURCE: smoke and oil smell at start up sometimes

Hey WendyandRon..there is 3 types of smoke..that comes from a combustion engine that has a problem..there is black smoke..which means it running excessively rich with fuel..the next is a blue smoke.which means oil consumption..which could mean the engine is worn..but not always..there is other factors..and then white smoke..from a bown head gasket..and if ya hang out at the rear exhaust pipe..you probably can tell me what it really smells like..and we can go from there

SOURCE: why does my 89 mustang gt blow black on the grass an stals

your gas to air ratio is off. Too much gas not enough air,flooding,check if the gaskets are tight for the fuel area.

SOURCE: i have a 2003 ford mustang gt stick shift. clutch sliping

Make sure your master cylinder and slave cylinder are operating. If the clutch hasn't been replaced in a while (or you have been especially hard on the clutch) it could just be worn out.

91 cressida running rough also blowing smoke nothing wrong with head gasket any clues??


white smoke would be a sign of a head gasket blue smoke is a sign of burning oil black smoke is a sign of a fuel problem so blowing smoke and rough running do a compression test and look for a weak cylinder

Hello, I have a 2001 ford mustang gt. At times when I first start it up some white smoke is coming out of both exhaust pipes. I took it to my mechanic and he said it it probably oil getting in the...


usually:
white smoke is coolant leaking into the combustion chamber

blue-ish smoke is oil in the combustion chamber

black smoke is excessive fuel (running rich)

If it is white smoke, pull the oil dipstick and check to make sure your not getting coolant in your oil.
If thats okay check the compression on each cylinder to make sure your head gasket isn't leaking.

if your car is burning oil, you may need to replace your PCV valve(about $5).
As far as oil additives, try RESTORE

1994 Ford Mustang blowing white smoke that smells like pure gas. Gas running straight through and getting about 5 mile per gallon.


Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

Smoke and oil smell at start up sometimes


I have a 1989 chevy silverado. my dad bought it new and never drove it. he wanted to pay it off first. after 5 years it had 15K miles on it. it then smoked everytime he cranked it after it had sit a while. The lack of driving it caused the rubber valve seals to dry rot. so now when it sits, oil seeps down between the valve and the seal and enters the piston chamber. when he cranks it, a poof of blue smoke blows out the exhaust but quickly disappears after the the initial poof of smoke.
this may be your problem also if you have abnormally low milage on the vehicle

SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE PCV VALVE MAY BE STUCK OPEN OR THE VACUUM LINE ON THE THROTTLE MAY BE SUCKING OIL INTO IT. PULL OFF THE AIR INDUCTION HOSE AND LOOK INSIDE THE THROTTLE BODY TO SEE IF THERE IS THE PRESENCE OF OIL.OPEN THE PLATE AND SPRAY GOOD CARB AND CHOKE SPRAY INSIDE WITH AN OLD TOOTHBRUSH TO CLEAN IT OUT. SOAK IT UP WITH A CLOTH RAG. WAIT A FEW MINUTES TO START CAUSE IT WILL HAVE TOO MUCH FUEL IN IT TO START. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW PLEASE. BEST OF LUCK.

Bought 5.0 engine with systemax installed. Said it ran great. I installed the engine and just put the a 255LPH fuel pump in. Adjusted fuel regulator to 42 PSI. Runs REAL ruff. Won't idle by itself. Black...


I think your 88 mustang contols the fuel air mix with a manifold absolute pressure sensor. Ive seen were the vacume line going into one has worked loose or broken cousing rough idle and throttle. llso check that the idle air control valve isn't plugged up with soot. This would also result in rough or loping idle but would be fine once the engine is hot. Let me know if this was helpful, good luck.
