Question about 1996 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

1st issue. My car has suddenly started smoking, white smoke from the exhaust, did I overfill the oil or is it more sinister than that. I haven't lost power that i can notice. Will excess oil burn off like that. The smoke is prevalent when pulling off after a stop. Once running the smoke is hardly noticeable. 2nd issue. Whilst going home yesterday, the temp hit an all time high. I stopped and checked the water in the bottle. It was low. I topped up and left the car for a few hours to cool properly. I collected it later and the temp seemed fine until i had to make two steep climbs. After that the temp climbed to higher than normal operating temps. Is it the thermostat or water pump? Or worse...something else?

You might be looking at a head, or head gasket issue. White smoke is usually due to coolant mixing in your combustion chamber, or cylinder. Blue smoke is from oil. Your loss of coolant and high temperature might be the clue. A leak down test and coolant system pressure test should tell the tale for you.

White smoke coming from exhaust,need help


White smoke is condensation from a buildup of water from within the exhaust system - if it was blue smoke then it is burning oil ... let car sit for a few minutes and take the dipstick out - wipe it clean - then re-insert dipstick - take it back out and check level against gauge at bottom of dipstick if you think you may have overfilled the oil

Too much oil in 1995 honda


Did you overfill your car with oil? Did you check the dipstick? Is that why you are thinking there's too much oil? What color is the smoke coming out of the exhaust? If it's white, you could have an issue with the piston rings, as the oil burns it's leaking out through the cylinder piston rings if they are worn down.

White smoke from exhaust


You probably have oil that spilled over onto the engine block and manifolds which is burning off while you drive. You could get some degreaser and clean the engine. You could also just keep driving it untill it stops smoking as long as it seems to be running OK.

White Smoke when i put gas in car


The most common cause of blue (or worse still) being expelled through the exhaust system is extreme wear in the engine, or, if you're extremely fortunate a significant OVERFILL of the engine oil level. One other possible, though unlikely cause, is a fault in the engine's scavenging system.
Has this problem occurred suddenly without warning? Had the car been serviced immediately before this event, or the engine oil topped up?

I change oil in my nissan titan v8 and after the engine started smokeing what do we do to stop the smoke.


if the smoke is coming from the engine bay, check for spilt oil or an oil leak, especially on the exhaust. clean/fix this and the smoke should stop.

if it is coming from the exhaust, check you have used the correct grade of oil (too thin oil may bypass oil seals slightly) and you have not overfilled the engine and this can cause internal pressure, causing oil to bypass the seals, or even blow oil seals completely. overfilling will also damage the catalytic converter.

White smoke coming out of my exhaust pipe, when start car and putting oil in every day ?


White smoke out of your exhaust pipe is the result of oil being burn during the combustion in your engine. This is caused by wear and tear of the cylinder walls and wear on piston rings. Oil is getting in and burning with the air/fuel mix.

How much oil are you adding every day? And what level is the oil dipstick showing usually? Sometimes overfilling the engine with to much oil can cause this.

Alot ofwhite smoke coming from tail pipe


Have you overheated or are loosing coolant? If not check to see if your transmission has a vacuum hose going to it. (if coolant you can smell it in the exhaust)
I don't think you have the trans hook up but can't remember.
