Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

How do I locate a leak that lets antifreeze and oil mix inside the oil pan?


Most likely a head gasket. The coolant is forced into the oil chambers and mixes. This too leaks into the exhaust gases and burns off as you describe. You usually get oil in the coolant reservoir. This can be checked with a test strip available at automotive supply store. It measures the acidity in the coolant.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

When I go to crank my car up white smoke comes out but the only time it do it. How do I fix this?


Sounds like white smoke is antifreeze. It might be leaking all of the time. Does your antifreeze level fall gradually over a week's time?

How would i know if i have a cracked block on my cavalier


  • Check to see if your engine is leaking oil and/or coolant. This causes your engine to overheat and if it's not fixed, it can cause it to freeze up.

    Check your oil and antifreeze for contamination. If your oil or antifreeze looks different in any way, have it tested by a lab to determine if contamination has occurred.

  • 4

    Check the level of fluid in your radiator. If your car suddenly loses a lot of coolant or the level is very low, this can indicate a cracked block.

  • 5

    Look for excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe.

  • 6

    Check the radiator's coolant mixture of antifreeze and water to determine if it has frozen.

  • 7

    Check to see if the engine has overheated severely. Overheating can be caused by another engine problem, but the effect of the overheating can be a cracked block.

    White smoke from exaust


    Hi,
    When white smoke is spewing from your exhaust, it is usually an indication that something is burning. The typical culprit is a burning fluid from the vehicle, but other causes are possible.

    Oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze are the three fluids most likely to be the cause of white smoke coming from your exhaust. Ruptured seals, leaky bolts and blown gaskets can expose oil to hot spots, making it burn. Pinholes or loose lines can cause antifreeze to spray on the engine, while transmission fluid can be sucked into the engine and burn


    Here is a form of solution or prevention which can help you out;
    Keep your fluids at the appropriate level and change them at the recommended intervals to reduce leaks and maintenance issues. Use the proper types of fluids as well. The wrong transmission fluid can cause your gears to stick and wear down, while the wrong oil can reduce lubrication on the engine and cause internal damage. Improper mixture or wrong type of antifreeze can cause overheating.


    Good luck.

    Engine misfire


    White smoke usually indicated it's burning antifreeze. Check your antifreeze level and oil condition before anything.

    My 93 maxima got no power an smoke started to come out the tail end.


    The best test is a compression test.
    Blue smoke means it's burning oil, due to worn out piston rings.
    White smoke means it's mixing antifreeze and oil due to a bad head gasket or cracked head or block.

    Exhaust smoke white


    You could have a head gasket problem, Check your oil level and see if it's high and also check it for antifreeze. If there is antifreeze miked with your oil it would seam mikly and check your antifreeze level too if it's gone down. Good luck and keep in mind that antifreeze is corrosive the internal bearing in your engine.

    My truck blows white smoke


    Hello!
    There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
    Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
    In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
    If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
    In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
    Good Luck
