What color is the smoke if it is blue it is from oil which indicates a lot of oil is getting into the combustion chamber & being burnt which means you have a serious problem ( either rings or valve guides & seals) if it is black it is excessive fuel & you have a problem with the carburetor,maybe sticking needle & seat or the float has a hole in it & has filled up with petrol or fuel injectors which ever your vehicle has ...........cheershope this helps....

2002 ford explorer 4.0 xls, shuts off when coming to a stop and also when switchin from drive to reverse. the engine also smokes at the exhaust manifold I'm guessing


Sounds like a possible idle air control problem (IAC) The smoke probably has nothing to do with the idle problem. Possible valve cover leak??

Check Engine light


This is a lean Code. What is happening is too much air is entering the engine and the O2 sensor is making the engine run rich to rebalance the fuel ratio.

You need to find the leak. Use a spray bottle of water while the engine is running. When you spray over the leak, the rpm will change or the engine may even stall. This is where repair is needed.

1997 ford explorer V6. Engine was idling to warm up, went in house for 10 minutes. Came out engine smoking knocking like crazy. Shut off engine and opened hood, oil was sprayed all over engine oil...


this sounds like the engine oil cooler hose was leaking.

DO NOT run the engine again until you fill with oil.

start the engine and look for the hose that is leaking.

91 camaro 305 tpi runs rough at idle sometimes stalls and has power loss


tune up-read your plugs and then check your timing. use timing light and double check with scan tool-most 91 305's were high outputs which
requires higher octane than regular (fuel grade revelatnt to compression ratio and altitude) you may want to check fuel pressure could be a clogged filter or bad pump.

If you are sure it is white smoke and the car overheats or looses water,The head gasket is bad.
