I'm not sure what you meant by 'soothe' but am assuming smoke or soot?

If you are smelling anything like exhaust fumes, it would take a combination of an exhaust manifold or header leak and an air intake that is damaged and drawing it into the passenger compartment, a dangerous combination that could cause drowsiness and potetnially loss of consciousness.

You should have a mechanic inspect under the hood, it could be a dangerous problem.

I have a 2005 jeep liberty that has white smoke coming from the exhaust when idling and it smells like burnt firecrackers after driving it when I turn the engine off. Any ideas?


If it is the v8, the most common cause for greyish, white smoke is bad valve stem seals. True white smoke smells very sweet and is caused from coolant being buring in the combustion chamber.

What caused white smoke from exhaust?


Generally, white smoke is engine coolant burning. If it only happened for a few seconds, you may have leaked some on the exhaust pipes.
I would check the engine oil and coolant levels with the engine cold, and then look for coolant leaks.

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.

I am driving a 2006 KB 250 fleetside, just over 101250km. This is my first diesel vechile and i`m abid worried about my fuel consumption. Done a trip to luderitz recently and used about 38 lts for 390 km...


The injectors have o-rings that will wear and cause fuel leak into engine and cause same smoke problem ,but glow plugs are only for engine firing.........you can change o-rings only but if it has lot of miles i would do injectors...
however make sure the fuel rail isnt leaking at injector connection.also check exhaust for excessive heat or noise inside cat.converter if you can shake it.....some come apart inside.....
it would be worth having the engine scanned to make sure 02 sensors are good..they control air/fuel mix and if oxygen level is incorrect it will burn more fuel and sometimes fuel scent but not very bad.

1999 ford expendition has smoke coming out of the vent


If it is a kind of sweet smell then your heater core needs to be replaced. It's leaking and you should keep an eye on your coolant level until you get it fixed. The smoke is coolant. Hope this helps.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

White smoke exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....
