What do you mean by "smoking up and everything."? Was the engine still running at the time? If so, the engine has not seized. Is it making any strange noises? If it's just smoking a lot, but still running and not making any strange noises, you probably just have a leak and and alarmist friend.
either the valve stem oil seals have gone which means oil is trikeling into piston thats causes black smoke or worst case oil rings on pistons gone but the smoke will have a bluey tinge to it also may just need a service and tune up hope this helps ivan
having a blue smoke no white with a lot oil consumption,means that you have a problem with either valve stem seals got hard and can not hold oil getting in the combustion chamber through the valves.Or your engine bores are worn due to long mileage if you have and the piston rings are not strong enough to hold oil below piston rings in the oil pan. or your piston rings or piston channels broken and oil goes into combustion chamber and burnt through the exhaust system. What you have too do? visit a qualified workshop for a correct inspection and decision taken.Good luck.
IF ENGINE SMOKING WHITE INCORRECT INJECTION TIMING TIMING RETARDED FUEL FULL OF AIR BUBBLES. IF YOU SEE BLACK SMOKE TIMING IS ADVANCED. IF YOU SEE LOT OF HEAVY BLUE SMOKE LOW COMPRESSION ENGINE BURNING OIL.
there are many things that cause this, so it is best to have it scanned if light is on. but it may be a bad coolant tempurature sensor the symtoms are --- if it is bad it will run to rich, run rough at idle, and produce black smoke. engine may stall out. a maf sensor may cause this also. just get car scanned to find problem code. if it is white smoke check for oil in anti-freeze, if so it may be a blown head gasket. but if that is bad it will over heat. have a good day!!
black smoke usually indicates to much fuel being delivered. If this is the case you need to correct it soon or you will damage the catalytic convertor. What year is the vehicle and how many miles on it? Is there a check engine light on? this info would help
