There has been an issue of Suzuki engines smoking due to the PCV. valve or the baffles under the valve cover. One method of curing this is to place an oil separator between the vacuum line from the intake and the PCV. This will make for the need to keep an eye on it as it will fill up with oil eventually thus negating the purpose of placing it there in the first place. I think the big fix would be to remove the valve cover and check the oil baffles and filter therein. The problem is that oil builds up at the location of the PCV and is getting sucked into the intake via the vacuum hose to the intake. The quick fix? unplug the PCV and plug up the vacuum hose to the intake. This will get you by until you can get it to a mechanic. Anyway, That what I know. hope it helps

White smoke can be several things,one thing people usually miss while diagnosing white smoke is the modulator valve on the transmission. a bad modulator valve causes whit or greyish smoke from tailpipe.if thats not it,do you lose coolant? does your exhaust smell sweet? if so you could have a bad head gasket,antifreeze leaking from headgasket into exhaust side of motor.try these easy diagnostic tests 1st hope this helps!!!

Can i Frush my engin with Desel


If you're trying to flush the engine due to sludge, a more common and very effective flush is to substitute a quart or two of automatic transmission fluid in place of the same quantity of engine oil. Get the engine up to temperature, then drain again. Repeat as many times as necessary, the, finally drain all the oil, change the oil filter, and install the correct amount and weight of engine oil.

I have had my 2000 suzuki esteem for 5 years and just now am changing the oil and filter for the first time. Are there any extra things I should check or do considering it has been neglected so long?


Would help if you shared all vehicle detail information as it relates to miles and what other maintenance have you done to it.
Based on average yearly use, it may be due for a complete tune up, maybe water pump, thermostat and belts. If it's been driven in city, stop and go traffic, brakes could also be taken care of.

The oil pump is the next step.

White smoke but engin was done over and new exqust


Is there alot of smoke or does it go away after the car warms up? If it is alot of smoke that does not stop then have the mechanic check for coolant leaks into the engine. Usually caused by a blown head gasket. If it goes away after awhile then you have a rich fuel mixture and will have to have the emmision system checked but could be normal.

I am driving a 2006 KB 250 fleetside, just over 101250km. This is my first diesel vechile and i`m abid worried about my fuel consumption. Done a trip to luderitz recently and used about 38 lts for 390 km...


The injectors have o-rings that will wear and cause fuel leak into engine and cause same smoke problem ,but glow plugs are only for engine firing.........you can change o-rings only but if it has lot of miles i would do injectors...
however make sure the fuel rail isnt leaking at injector connection.also check exhaust for excessive heat or noise inside cat.converter if you can shake it.....some come apart inside.....
it would be worth having the engine scanned to make sure 02 sensors are good..they control air/fuel mix and if oxygen level is incorrect it will burn more fuel and sometimes fuel scent but not very bad.

Please help me, My name is Kare and approximately two days ago I was trying to put water in my radiator hole and accidently put it in the oil hole, the car has been driving i just realized the error this...


Hi Kare. I would suggest you drain all the oil immediately or have a shop do it. You don't want water in there for to long or it can hurt your motor. Just get a oil and filter change. and put some water in the radiator. You should be all good from there
