Diagnosing bad valve seals


Hey Barry, I assume you mean valve stem seals... bad or leaking valve stem seals will manifest themselves as whitish oil smoke from the exhaust as soon as you start the vehicle...after the vehicle has been sitting for a while..especially after the vehicle has been sitting over night. You will notice slight oil consumption..When you change the oil, the smoke will slow for a while.. until the oil gets some milage..then it will start smoking and using oil again.....

VW Caddy Mk2 1.9SDI, engine hunting with black smoke from exhaust.


Hi mate

I have 3 VWs and 2 Audis the VAGCOM but before you go out and spend a ton do the following

Change fuel filter
Get you a can of Seafoam

Since my tanks are only 14 gallons I used half of it every 6 months to keep injectors cleaned.

But because you have so much black smoke I will do the full can on a tank of fuel. Give it a drive it will smoke white a bit while it clears all the all junk. If that don't help that injected went to VW injector heaven.

Good luck

I have a mazda mpv 2006 2.3l turbo from japan.2 months of using the car its smoking and oil level dropping ever day


If the vehicle has a diesel engine and it starts with black smoke that clears you should put some injector cleaner in the fuel tank, a couple of treatments should clean the injectors.
If the smoke is grey/white perhaps you should have the engine checked for issues.
If the vehicle has a petrol engine maybe the valves need some attention.
Ideally you should have the people who supplied you with the vehicle take a look at it . The problem wit himports is that some elements of a vehicle need modification to run correctly, this sounds as though something more serious may be ammiss
The oil level is reducing quickly, that needs investigation.
I would say that the person who supplied you with the vehicle needs to take a very close look at the engine.

GOOD LUCK WITH IT

I have a nissan sentra 2000 model has idle hunt problem. replaced TPS IACV had computer remanned. when vehicle starts hunting can shut car off then restart idles normal. shut off again wait 2-4 minute


You check fuel pressure?

OBD Codes in ANY Module?

All Emission Monitors Run clear?

Look at a trouble chart for the IAC problem

I do not know what having the computer remanned means

If it was replaced or not, it may need an update flashed

Did you Google the problem & check nissan forums?

Slip into service bay at a dealer, from the outside & ask a
tech,I do that all the time,no one will stop you,your going to
parts dept (right & got lost)

White smoke coming from exhaust when i start car


My friend, you have a good vehicle. Sediment, fuel and other fluids build up as vehicles sit. Idling your vehicle for a few minutes before driving is a smart idea. Unless it is black smoke( header oil leak) you should be okay. Just keep track of your fluid levels

I have a 2004 Duramax. I try to start this morning, batterys are ok and the starter is turning over, the engine won't start. I have 145000 miles on this vehicle, have never had this problem. Injectors...


Problem is in either the electrical (ignition, coil,spark, crankshaft sensor, ecm, et) or fuel delivery system (fuel pump, filter, injectors, etc).

Smoke, smoke, smoke and alternator/fan belt shredded


If 1994 Suzuki equip with air condition then please check the A/C compressor clutch.

The compress clutch can lock up on a defect ai/c pump and cause the belt to smoke.

Please check for a fail a/c pump first and get back to me.

An fair A/C pump can be bypass via an a/c pump bypass pulley (as picture below)
