Sound like you have a leaking head gasket , or possible oil rings on the pistons are worn, if you have the head gaskets replaced check the clearance for the oil rings , mechanical shop can do this , just let them know to check them , but i would start with replacing head gaskets , if the smoke it white then you are leaking coolant into the cylinders , either way the head gaskets will fix

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

Smoke engines


Smokes can be of three colors.
1. White smoke.
Excessive white smoke reveals presence of water in fuel, thermostat valve stuck open, or burnt cylinder head gasket.
2. Black smoke.
Black smoke could be observed due to the unburnt fuel or higher percentage of Hydrocarbons during the combustion process, defective regulating valve, ruptured PCV valve, low fuel pump pressure, defective charcoal canister, ruptured or leaking fuel injectors.
3. Blue smoke.
Blue smoke reveals the engine failure.

I put no-smoke in my crankcase to help with occasional exhaust smoke. When I cranked it after adding it smoked white smoke really bad. Can this be normal?


Unfortunately, with using that product, yes, it is normal... That stuff is not good for any vehicle... What kind of car do you have? Has it had problems with smoking? Black or white smoke? Does the smoke have an odor?

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?


state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.
