Yes, could be bad piston rings which mean engine over haul or cylinder head valve seal, which in some cases cylinder head will have to come off to replace valve seals. I keep looking around or it will cost you more in the long run,good luck.

As long as the smoke clears right away I would not be to concerned, the smoke is caused by worn valve guides and seals,

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.

Why bmw x5 battery drain fan not working exhaust blowing out white smoke... what may be happening.


White smoke out of the exhaust indicates moisture (water) in the exhaust. If the car is not driven very far each day, some moisture will collect in the muffler and cause white smoke for a short while after starting. If the smoke is continual, however, you need to watch you coolant level as you may have a blown head gasket.

X-Trail has white smoke blowing out exhaust pipe when I start up


It's normal for cars to do this in cold weather til the engine warms up a bit. If it's not cold you might have a head gasket going bad causing antifreeze to get into the engine.

Just had computer pluged in on hilux 3.0 td which i posted mechanic said theres no default codes comin up and it maybe a turbo problem im bit freaked out as that must spell $ anyway can anyone help m


the turbo has variable blades in the exhaust side to direct the exhaust over the turbine at low rpm's. It is worked by an actuator that is vacuum controlled from a module. The blades sometimes stick or the vacuum hose goes hard and cracks ant stops working the actuator The bit between the two round bits.

My mazda 626 has a strong potent smell coming from the exhaust


You don't mention what that smell is reminiscent of?

You don't mention the colour of the "smoke" and you didn't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel?

You don't mention whether the road behaviour/performance is normal?

White smoke is almost always steam or in the case of a diesel it could be an unburned fuel mist, grey/black is excess fuel and blue or grey/blue is burning oil.

Some steam is fairly normal until the engine and exhaust system is hot but excessive amounts could be one symptom of head gasket trouble. If the engine is drinking coolant and sending it through the exhaust as steam it will sometimes smell spicy.

Burning oil smells a bit like burned eggs in the frying pan.

If the car hasn't ultra-low sulphur oil and fuel the catalytic converter will convert sulphur traces into hydrogen sulphide - the bad egg gas...

I don't know if it would cause the shaking and vibrations, but for the smoke it could be loose nuts or broken studs on the exhaust manifold -- when engine is cold check each of the nuts (there should be 8) to see if they are loose or missing/broken; you may have to remove a heat-shield in order to gain access
