Smoke from inside the engine


A little bit of smoke (or vapor) is normal. When the oil lubricates the cylinders some of the smoke from the detonation mixes with the oil, when you open the cap it's released. You could also be seeing a bit of water vapor coming out. If you see A LOT of smoke then you probably have worn cylinders (check with a pressure test) or a bad head gasket, or a cracked block. The latter two will cause your coolant level to be low and your engine to over heat. Let us know if you have any of those symptoms.

2004 dodge durango 5.7 hemi runs real rough white smoke comes out then blows oil cap off.


Ah oh..white smoke is water in the cylinder and cap blowing off is compressed air in the crank case..sounds like you have a blown head gasket or intake or both...have your radiator and block pressure tested..if gasket is leaking it will fail to hold pressure.. Check your oil for water sometimes a bad intake gasket will let water in the oil.good luck..

I put oil in my car and it has been leaking but it does not come out under my car, I noticed that there is a lot of oil on the motor from the cap and it smokes smells like burning oil. what should I do


you should check and replace the pcv valve,if it gets plugged it can cause too much pressure in the crankcase and it will leak out at the weakest point which usually is the oil fill cap.the vapor from the fumes leaking out has oil in it and when it touches anything that is hot it burns off causing the smoke and smell.once the vapor is gone the smoke and smell will eventually go away,or you can wash the motor off.

Hi, i have a 2001 mk4 golf 1.4 s fitted with the axp engine. had the head gasket changed last week, all skimmed , pressure tested properly etc. got the car back and what i thought was just unburnt oil on...


I had a look at the video and it looks like steam - to confirm oil will not evaporate but steam will disappear. If it is steam you have a blown head gasket again or a crack in the head, but you definitely seem to be getting water/steam into your crankcase.

I was driving this morning, no problems yesterday but did get my oil changed and a new air filter at jiffy lube yesterday. AS I was driving the car started to over heat. White smoke was coming from the...


Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

White smoke heavy when started and then goes away...drives and after awhile rides alittle rough..Iwas told it might be something else besides head gaskets....


Depends on how much smoke. A little puff that goes away quickly is no cause for concern the flat six engine does get oil deposits under the piston skirt when parked and is considered normal.

Excessive smoke (fogging for mosquites) indicates a failed oil \ air separator. Confirm by removing the oil fill cap with the engine running - if the vacuum tries to **** your hand into the oil tube, your separator is a goner.

Not excessively difficult to replace yourself. The part is about $300 and you can replace it in a couple of hours, it is located at the rear of the engine, passenger side, top.

2002 Jetta 1.8T random oil pressure warnings


Replace oil pump and use the bigger filter that Vw tells you to. These 1.8's have some oiling problems due to the amount of oil they hold and they want you to use synthetic oil in them.
