Question about 1997 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

1997 Toyota Tercel. When cranked last week was told my car was smoking via exhaust. I went and got oil change. Now 6 days later driving home and Engine Light Blinking and Car Shaking. Car stutters/hesitant and won't accelerate. could this have anything to do with me needing a Fuel Injection Cleaning done or radiator flushed?

    is your radiator low on coolant? If so you may have a blown head gasket. If you see steam coming out of your tailpipe that usually indicateds a blown head gasket. The oil may or may not be milky looking as well. the water leaking into the cylinders will short out the spark plugs.

Their must be some oil stored somewhere and it is dripping on your exhaust manifold,but never pressure wash your engine, could cause worse problems,in time the smell will go away,just be patient.It will burn off in time.

Wont stay running.


There is no thinking & throwing parts at any vehicle

The only fix is knowledge & the ability to do some testing

Lets go with a failed fuel pump & at least check pressure
at the motor on a gauge or see if that data is on a scan tool

Explain what test told you a cylinder wasn't firing !

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust


Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

I have a 1997 model Toyota 4runner SR5, which I bought within the last three weeks at 230,000 mile but the fuel consumption is excessive and had been bringing out black smoke from the exhaust pipe


black smoke when driving.(not slowing down)is an indication that the rings are shot.(engine rebuild)exhaust will smell of oil.black smoke on deceleration indicates valves stems worn.(head rebuild)

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

2000 Audi A4 quattro with abrupt gear shifting & low oil pressure


I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

Water coming out of the exhaust of my 93 Toyota Tercel


It could be moisture in exhaust but if a white smoke is there check oil when drained to see if water is present. The oil shold be a light brown milky look.

1993 TOYOTA TERCEL 1500cc Valve Seals Replaced now smokes much worse


You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.
