Sounds like you have a blown head gasket - white smoke = coolant. Pull plugs and look for "steam cleaned plug" or for coolant in oil - looks milky.

I ran my chev. 1990 pickup out of oil and now it smokes so bad. and i think my fuel pump is going out but not sure??


Sounds like you may have ruined the piston rings and this is allowing oil to seep in to the combustion chamber hence your smoke. Or if it overheated when you ran out of oil it is possible that you have a bad head gasket now. Check both your coolant and oil for signs, oil will have a white froth, or darkening of your coolant. Hope that helps you.

What color smoke out of the tailpipe ? Black - running rich , too much fuel or not enough air . Blue smoke - burning oil , piston rings valve seales , white smoke could be two different thing's - coolant in the cylinders or fuel going stright through the cylinder out the tailpipe . No combustion .
Check engine light on ? Have you replaced plugs an plug wires ,air filter , any engine sensors - TPS - MAP - MAF etc.... How many miles on the vehicle ? 1988 model - engine worn out ?

Volvo s60 deisel blowing sotty smoke


There are a few things that can cause sooty smoke. Check the are filter and the turbo. If its the turbo then the exhaust pipe after the turbo will have oil in it. If you can give me more info I might be able to help more if this doesn't do it for you.
