If the smoke is coming from the tailpipe and will not stop you have a cracked head. this can be caused by a hot engine sprayed with cold water. if it was just for a few seconds it smoked and i don't do it any more you are most likely ok. it is rare to bust a head that way but it can happen.

good luck

1993 Mazda Miata runs perfect in everyway except that it just started blowing white/grey smoke from tailpipe, only happens when it is first started and cold engine


could be 2 reasons.
1. start of a head gasket leak to the combustion chamber. Will become more white and for longer period as it gets worse.
2. oil rings are worn and starting to pass oil to combustion chamber. They seal up once engine is worn.

White smoke out tailpipe car has 17300.00 miles


White smoke is coolant being burnt in the cylinder,
most likely from a failed head gasket

I would think a 1989 is too old to fix
Cost more than the car is worth

Any oil useage between oil changes every
say 3000 to 4500 miles is too much,engine is
worn

Sounds like an intake manifold leak. Once the manifold gets hot the gasket leaks. I would check that first and the head gasket second. Are you getting any smoke, hesitation at all?

Starts first time, no smoke on normal running, then rev up and white smoke comes out??? no wrong feul!!! changed air, oil and feul filters, but still throwing out white smoke on reving... can anyone help?...


It could be a coolant or transmission fluid leak in the combustion chamber. Check your coolant and transmission fluid to see if one or both are low. White smoke from the exhaust is a classic symptom of a blown head gasket, have your cooling system pressure checked. If that checks out good then have your transmission checked.

1989 toyota corolla will not start


You have soaked all your electrical. All you can do is get an air hose and try to blow everything off as well as you can. Take apart what you can, and blow it out. If it doesn't go, you'll just have to wait.

Pajero 1989,too much smoke durong first start


Is it white,black or blue smoke?
If it's the org. engine it will has over 200,000 miles on it.

It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals. It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.

This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional to service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
I will monitor the oil and coolant level.
White smoke AFTER warm up is the first sign of blown headgasket.
