First question is it smoke or steam ? if if ligers in the air behind you as you drive with little dissipation or if its steam it will dissapear more quickly . either way , head gasket is first . once saw a car do that excessive engine oil put in by owner . giant flumes of white smoke . if you ever want a true smoke scren to get away then adding about 2 to 4 quarts of oil extra . man it is something to see

1.9tdi hi guys my polo have a hard start problem cold or hot is it normal it crank for about 3sec and then it starts injectors and glow plugs are fine


Hi Armo 3 secs is not too bad. You could fit a inline non-return valve to the fuel line before the fuel filter. It could be leaking back. That's why you need to spin it over to get the pressure back up. It's worth a shot. Regards Jim...

DI have a 1983 ford f250 with 6.9 diesel engine. The previous owner told me that the front fuel tank did not work; he said that he was running the truck on the front tank once and that the truck started...


have you looked into the injectors, or injector balance? glow plugs just preheat the cylinders before you start turning the engine over. if the injectors are dumping too much fuel it will run rich and blow black smoke, lean it will dump white smoke, same as if it has an internal coolant leak, but smell different. Ford has had problems with EGR systems on some of their diesels, being an older truck how many miles is on it? and the front fuel tank could have a bad fuel pump, pretty common for them to do what you have described. Also might want to have the timing looked at on it! It ignites off of pressure, and if the timing is off it will adversely affect the ignition of the fuel which will make for hard starts, and poor running. there is a lot that needs to be looked at to figure this one out! could be quite a few different things. Good luck!

would need to play with it and try it myself when its cold, but i would be inclined to check out the glow plugs and maybe even have the injectors reset before playing with teh injector pump ,also fitting a non return valve in the fuel inlet line and one in the return in case the valves in the injector pump are starting to play up

Bmw 325tds diesel flowing back to tank when parked


usual problem ,valves in injector worn for the fuel pump.easy quick fix this one ,fit a non return valve in the inlet pipe,check flow direction on valve when fitting and evan better as well is another in the bleed off return pipe .valves available from a motor factor or a specialist garage like bosch or lucas ,cut pipe and fit the valve with a piece of rubber pipe to connect the valve in line.or listen to the people who want to milk the golden cow and have the whole injector pump overhauled .

2002 audi a4 1.8 t cold start problem


It might be an injector problem.Sometimes if the injectors are not sealing properly they can leak fuel into the manifold even when the engine is off as there is still residual pressure there and you engine would be essentially' flooded' when you try start it again .After half an hour or so,and it would take some seconds after that to run normally untill the excess fuel is burned.

Have them checked and replaced if needed.

Please leave positive feedback if I have helped

Thanks

White smoke is a sign of unburnt diesel fuel, check your glowplugs as thats the most common cause when starting .It will start but not hot enough to burn fuel at start up, also check glowplug relay if not the plugs
