Sounds like the valve guides are worn. They will wear excessively due to the fact that
the gas currently sold has less lead content than what was sold when these motors
were manufactured. This also affects the rings as well. You could have the heads
rebuilt with new valve guides that are designed for the new fuel. The lead acted as a
lubricant. Also given the age of that engine, I would rebuild the carbeurator as well
if it exhibits black smoke, and replace the choke during rebuild. A sticking choke
will make it hard to start and plenty of black smoke. Hope this helps.

Burning oil


And let me guess, no smoke from tail pipe. Problem is internal. Nissan had a whole batch of these motors with this problem. Unfortunately, engine replacement is required. Don't get a junkyard motor, get a quality rebuilt.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

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

1994 Cadillac Deville loosing a lot of oil. No oil residue on tail pipe, not smoking, no oil in antifreeze...


Does it drip off onto the driveway? As in oil pools?

You first need to determine if the oil is blowing out when the engine is on high revs or if it happens anytime the engine operates. On my 1996 Mark VIII it ended up being the valve cover gaskets, but at first it was such a small leak that it would only blow out when the engine was at high revs. I eventually found the problem by steam cleaning the engine and then using kitchen floor to spot the leak.

My 1991 honda accord fails to start after I have driven it a short distance and turn it off. I also is blowing white smoke out of the tail pipe


If it is a constant smoke and or alot, your head gasket is blown. stop driving it if you want to save this engine. also engines with really high miles don't like head jobs, remanned heads can blow out the rings on the pistons and that leads to an engine rebuild. If your car has really high miles , you would be better off replacing the engine

Lots of smoke comes out of tail pipe when crunk up and when i push the gas alot of water comes out


what is happening is your coolant(radiator fluid) is being burned somehow. if you rev the **** out of your engine all the time maybe your piston rings are bad. the smoke is caused by the evaporation of the coolant and the fluid is comeing out because coolant doesn't burn with your gas, therefor expelling it through your exhaust

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 exhaust smoke only for the first 30 seconds,


you're buring oil, either through piston rings or leaky valve seals. definatley check your oil more regularly. if it starts using alot of oil, might want to take it in and get it fixed or trade it off.

Engine smoking


If smoke is sweet smelling and alot of moisture drips out of tail pipe, it is probably engine coolant.Check for coolant loss.
