Changed O2 sensors and white smoke starts pouring out of exhaust


White smoke is usually steam which would indicate a blown head gasket or crack in block. Hope it's something easier.

If your after market turbo is blowing oil into the engine, best you have it removed. When you say that fuel may be leaking into the cylinders, it could be leaking fuel injectors. If the smoke out of the tail pipe, it's usually indicator of burning coolant. Blue smoke is indicator of fuel and black of oil.

Heap of white smoke on startup but not always


White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.

Mazda bravo blowing white smoke


blowing white smoke is almost always a symptom of an engine coolant leak at the cylinder head gasket. remove each spark plug and look for a dis-colored plug to find which cylinder is leaking.
