Chas is wrong. Black smoke is running rich. Blue smoke is burning oil.

If it is grey smoke it sounds like steam which sounds like the cylnder head gasket is bust and needs replaced - if it has overheated then the worse case sceanrio is that the cylnder head may need reground or replaced. If the "smoke" is black then its burnuing oil and the seals are bust - much bigger job and more $'s.

SOURCE: what can cause a toyota camry 2004 to smoke when

If the smoke is black that your car is burning oil when it starts up. When your engine is hot, metal expands, sealing everything perfectly. When you engine is cold, not everything is sealed 100%. Your issue is probably the piston rings not seating right until the engine warms up. This will get worse over the years as continuous daily wear and tear will continue to wear the rings. Have your piston rings replaced. But don't just take my word for it, go to a dealer and have them diagnose it, if they say the same thing, than that's your issue, right on the money. Dealerships are they way to go, because they may give you a list of things that need to be, but they don't make things up.

SOURCE: what causes white smoke exhaust system 1998 toyota camry v6

The likely cause is coolant leaking into the cylinders due to a failed head gasket. You should be losing some coolant and need to top it up so check the level. You will also find that coolant is finding its way into the lubrication system and "contaminating" the oil.
Remove the dip stick to check the oil and if you can see a whitish substance in the oil you have coolant in the lubrication system which is is leaking through the failed head gasket.
You may also see traces of oil in the vehicles cooling system so look there also.
The only fix for this problem, once properly diagnosed, is to have the head removed from the engine and a new head gasket fitted. The head would also need to be checked carefully in case of cracking and in any event would most likely need to be machined by a head specialist before being refitted.

The `cause of the failure is unknown but if the vehicle has ever been operated with an overheated engine (due to problems with the cooling system) this is enough to blow the head gasket and to potentially damage the head on the engine.

Not good news I'm afraid so please get it checked out and properly diagnosed with a reputable auto repair business.

you have to determine what type of smoke it is, a white smoke is a coolant in exhaust sweet smell problem, a blue smoke is fuel and smells like it and burns eyes, a black smoke is oil, bad rings,valve seals. Stop treating it like a drag car !! HA,HA

Upon starting the 1995 Camry the engine dies. There is also grey smoke coming from the tail pipe. Checked the oil and there is no water in it.


Is it gray, bluish gray, or white? White smoke, during warm weather, indicates that you have a head gasket out and it's vaporizing water, it will look much like it does when you first start it on a cold day. Bluish gray indicates burning oil, which could be bad valve seating, severe engine wear on your piston rings and oil is blowing past them into the combustion chamber. Grey smoke is probably water as well, though it could be contaminated with oil, or the vehicle could be running too rich, getting too much gasoline. But typically this is more of a black smoke than gray.

Black smoke is coming from my exhaust on my 1993 Toyota Camry 2.2 LE. Does it have something to do with the fuel pressure regulator?


If its BLACK smoke it's unburned fuel. If it has carb, the carb float is too high or sunk. If it has fuel injection it's a stuck (open) fuel injector.
