Hello;
Valve seals worn out will pass oil on deceleration and light on idle. Condensation is water and burns off when the exhaust gets hot. The rattle sounds like it's pinging. See if up grading you fuel octane helps. Power steering fluid use? Hmmmmt, his oil goes nowhere but in circles with the system, UNLESS! it's leaking or running through some vacuum controlled device. If this is the case, Your smoke may be your power steering fluid. Idea! Have it lifted on a hoist and ck the underside of the vehicle, see if power steering fluid is being sprayed or blown onto the exhaust. It's not far fetched and if could get answers for all you griefs. If you find anything, I would appreciate being advised. Thank you, Happy New Year, and Good Luck. - Ned

Have a 2006 titan; noticed excess condensation and some white smoke after it was warm; also went I accelerate it sounds like a "metal rattle"(?) doesn't make that sound when at an idle...any suggestions?...


The condensation and white smoke could just be excess moisture that can build up in the muffler when the vehicles isn't used for a while or has been doing only short runs (less than 25-30 miles).. Keep an eye on the coolant level, and if it stays good then there isn't much to worry form that. As far as the "metal rattle" on acceleration, this could be what is known as "octane ping". It means that the engine is knocking a bit from fuel that isn't giving it enough octane. Cheap gas and occasional blending errors can cause this. Try running a tankful of mid-grade fuel next time. IF the noise goes away, you've found the culprit. Octane ping doesn't really hurt the engine, but it is annoying. You may be able to still use regular grade fuel, but might have to change the brand to find one that the truck likes better.

Why is it smoking?


Two things come to mind.
The cylinders may be warped from getting too hot, and how the new rings will not seat.
Or, there is a problem with the PCV system and the crankcase is not breathing.

i would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--

2006 Nissan Murano disconnected battery now the idle is messed up


Well it sounds like your mass airflow sensor is out the best thing to do is to take it to the auto parts store and they will read any codes it might have on it and most mainstreem auto parts stores do it for free. That or it could be the o2 sensor or plugs with out being there I'll have to cover all the bases

Valve stem seals can cause this problem, but normally only when first started. Oil in the rocker cover seaps through the oil seals into the cylinders and is burnt up on start up.
Try a "STOP A LEAK" additive and it may reduce the oil consumption and smoke.
I found some on e-bay and it worked on my tired old escort. It even stopped the rattling tappets.

2005 nissan murano sl, with rattling sound when accelerating


I recently experienced the same symptom with my '05 Murano and it was not a fuel problem. The dealer listed the cause as dry axle splines and replaced both front drive shaft assy's. Note that this was done as warranty with no cost incurred by me.
