Ok. Black smoke, mean fuel system too rich.
1 of the problem related come if the car is hard to start in the morning, If is the case, you need to check the coolant sensor and the harnes,
But if the car start normally in the morning or when the car is cool. You need to check for air leak in the intake.
check the hose from the air filter to the throthe bady for crack.
pinched. If evrything is OK. you need a MASS Air Flow Sensor.

K my 460 runs like **** its missing and number one plug was black...i changed wires- plugs -and cap and now runs worse and blowing white and blue smoke....whats wrong with it?

Black smoke coming out of the exhaust of my toyota 7k engine


It is running rich, too much gas possibly plugged air filter or PCV issue. May just need a tune-up. Blue smoke would be oil burning and White could mean headgasket or worse....

Changed spark plugs on my 03 maxima and notices that one of the spark plugs was soaked in oil . what would couse this .


it shows that the piston rings of that cylinder are weak and they cant hold the lubricating oil below the burning chamber and oil is burning with gasoline. Check the smoke from the exhaust pressing gas paddle full, if a lot of white smoke appears, u need to replace the piston rings, if the smoke is negligable, u can enjoy another 10,000 kms without any problem but with a little care of not pressing gas paddle in smaller gears, I hope this will be helpful.

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

Engine smokes


There are only two things that cause smoke, one is oil,the other is coolant, coolant has a really nauseating smell, most likely the oil is your smoke, it is caused by worn valve guides and or leaking valve stem seals, if it doesn't use more than a quart every 1000 miles I would not worry about it, how many miles on the car?
