no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

Have someone turn the key on while you watch the injectors. If any gas leaks out of the injectors, without cranking on it) replace the o'rings around the injectors.

SOURCE: exhaust blowing white grey smoke lots of it and

The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.

Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.

Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

CEL blinking smoke coming from exhaust, rough idle


White smoke is indicative of burning coolant. Gray smoke is burning oil.

Have a compression test done which will often give an indication of evolving head gasket problems. If the coolant level is going down, and there's no obvious leak, its a head gasket.

Truck starts and idles rough quickly smooths out and idles good when applying gas pedal smokes white can only 1500rpm truck has no power what should fuel pressure be at lift pump or any other suggestions


Have you checked your engine coolant.
White smoke is a good sign of a blown head gasket or failed intake manifold gasket.
Check your coolant first and your oil.
Check oil and see if it seams over filled.
Hope this helps Give feed back thanks FixYa

My 2009 H2 is idling rough for 2-5 min with a cool start, after 2 weeks of doing this, its now blowing white smoke on the first start of the day for 2-5 mins, after that it runs normally, I have NO...


My guess would be a leaking intake or head gasket. Water in the cylinder(s) is shorting the spark plug until the temp comes up on the engine. The white smoke is the coolant being burnt off. check your coolant level it may be low.

If your engine is not misfiring but it vibrates too much while idling your motor mounts might be getting worn out. I had a Nissan with bad motor mounts. I was ok in park but when you put it in gear it vibrated a lot. It smoothed right out as soon as you started moving.

Not saying this for sure, but I had the same problem, and i have a 1994 xr7 V6 3.8 L , and all u need to do is set the idle down manually because your computer could have seen that the injector was stuck open, and tried to turn up idle to keep up with the amount of fuel being pumped, worth a shot :P
