1988 v8 318 4x4 ram charger starts and runs rough then puffs white smoke out of throttle body and dies what could cause this


Have you checked youre water level? White smoke can indicate water. May be headgasket. I would also dble check valv clearances and timing for tge rough running. 180° out of timing may be the rough running too.Just go through top to bottom your work. could be wires not in correct position.

91 chevy cav z24 5 spd will not start @ times sounds like no fire other times sounds like no fuel.Replaced fuel pump,timing chain, crankshaft sensor,oil sensor,map sensor,body throttle accel sensor.st


Pull the air cleaner off and crank the engine. If puffs of air come come out of the throttle body when cranking the engine then the timing is not set correctly. Otherwise, after cranking pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with fuel and if so this indicates an ignition problem (coil, distributor/cap/rotor or faulty ECU).

When start.ecesive white smoke came out.from muffler


White smoke? I would be looking at a cracked cylinder head or a blown gasket. When cold remove the coolant cap and start engine if the coolant is blown out then i'm probably right.

It turns over but it will not stay running unless foot is on gas padal. White smoke is coming from tail pipe


Hi,
White smoke usually indicates a blown manifold gasket or head gasket. First, check for coolant in oil. When you pull the dipstick, is the level too high or have a foamy appearance? If so, blown head gasket. If not, spray starting fluid around intake manifold outer mating surface with engine running. ( not near throttle body or air intake) If motor revs up during procedure, locate that area you are spraying and duplicate the motor rev up. If consistent, blown intake manifold gasket. Its always good to have codes checked first if you have a check engine light illuminated....Mike

I have 1995 geo tracker. cranks over but doesnt start. would it be coil or fuel problem?


You need to conduct tests to be sure where the trouble is.
1. Spark test: remove the number one spark-plug, and hold it to the engine block. then ask a friend to crank up the engine..
2. If the system is good, you should see steady blue sparks. If you don't, then you would have to work on your ignition system.
3. Fuel test: get a can of 'starting fluid' or the common 'choke and throttle-body cleaner'.
4. Unbolt the clamp holding the air-intake hose to the throttle-body. Pull back the hose to expose the inside of the throttle-body.
5. Spray a good quantity of the cleaner into the body.
6. Re-attach the air-intake hose, and try to crank up the engine again.
7. It will show some hesitation, but keep cranking until it fires up, and able to idle.
8. If the throttle-body and the manifold are dirty, the choke cleaner should help.
9. Please get back to me if necessary.

White smoke coming out tailpipe


If your intake gaskets are leaking, when you dump soapy water on the gasket, it should bubble like crazy ( when it's running). If you can, run it with the rad cap off and watch for bubbles. If it keeps bubbling, you probably have a head gasket problem.
