White smoke and oil coming in the exhaust and smoke gets heavy when i get the engine running faster. What causes this problem?


Engine block is cracked. So oil and water are mixing with fuel. You need a new block or buy new car

Engine was knocking but running good not smoking so we replaced the engine with brand new short block from Toyota. Now the truck is blowing white smoke. What could the tech done wrong to cause this? Or...


Take it back. I doubt the short block is bad, but if the smoke persists beyond a day or two, the cylinder head may need removing to check the fit of the head gasket, and to ensure the passages in the head match the block. Does the exhaust have a sweet smell? That could be coolant burning.

Now it is possible that a little spilled coolant may have collected in the exhaust during the engine swap, and that is why you see white smoke. This should burn off in a day or two. If the smoke persists, and the coolant level is dropping, they need to take it back and fix it, at their expense, at least the labor charge. Toyota may have made production changes during the year on this engine, and that is what needs to be investigated. That, and if the head gasket is correctly fitted.

If the RPM Flairs, then the transmission is slipping
& has to be rebuilt or replaced

I have a loud clicking, tapping noise coming from my 1997 F150 4.2 liter engine truck while it is running. The noise gets faster as I increase throttle. When it first started this I had a lot of white...


The valves may need to be adjusted, sounds as if one has become a little loose. If not, one of the valves may be sticking. I would drain about 1 1/2 quarts of oil from the engine, put in a engine cleaner and run for about 5 min then drain all the oil. You may have to do this only once, but if the valve is sticking badly it may take another cleaning. It will cost a little to clean the engine $20 or so but not as much paying someone to break it down to do the same thing. Good Luck.

BMW 318ci 2003 Blue Smoke When Engine is Warm


you definitley seem to be getting oil in your combustiion chamber, pull your spark plugs and see if they are coverd in oil. if so your valve seals are bad, if not your piston rings are bad. As far as the kncking noise its hard to tell though a description, id have to hear it, but ill go out on a limb and say its in relation to the leak it could be a piston or valve knock. The garage heard the noise, ididnt so i hope i could help.

Saturn sc2 wont start


You most likely have a burnt terminal in your Inside fuse block.Easiest way to check this is to remove the console trim panel next to the drivers side front of console,just pulls loose.Then while trying to start the engine reach down & wiggle the wring going into the front 68way connector.If it takes off & starts to crank you have a burnt terminal in the fuse block.If you remove the front connector (68 Way) there are 2 of these 68 ways in that block.You can look inside at the male terminals you will see one terminal with plastic melted around it.If you see this,that''s your problem!! You will need to find a used Fuse block at junkyard with same Part #.Very important to get same part!! Hope This helps

Make sure oil level is adequate.

Also, this could be an exhaust leak that is being closed as the manifold and/or block heats up.
