    White, blue or black smoke? When does the smoke appear? (At startup only, all the time, on acceleration?)

Diagnosing bad valve seals

Hey Barry, I assume you mean valve stem seals... bad or leaking valve stem seals will manifest themselves as whitish oil smoke from the exhaust as soon as you start the vehicle...after the vehicle has been sitting for a while..especially after the vehicle has been sitting over night. You will notice slight oil consumption..When you change the oil, the smoke will slow for a while.. until the oil gets some milage..then it will start smoking and using oil again.....

Are you allowed to smoke cigerates in a works vehicle legally

Generally no. Vehicles are usually considered an extension of public buildings and therefor are covered by the laws prohibiting smoking in public owned/leased buildings.

I have a mazda mpv 2006 2.3l turbo from japan.2 months of using the car its smoking and oil level dropping ever day

If the vehicle has a diesel engine and it starts with black smoke that clears you should put some injector cleaner in the fuel tank, a couple of treatments should clean the injectors.
If the smoke is grey/white perhaps you should have the engine checked for issues.
If the vehicle has a petrol engine maybe the valves need some attention.
Ideally you should have the people who supplied you with the vehicle take a look at it . The problem wit himports is that some elements of a vehicle need modification to run correctly, this sounds as though something more serious may be ammiss
The oil level is reducing quickly, that needs investigation.
I would say that the person who supplied you with the vehicle needs to take a very close look at the engine.

My vehicle gives out black smoke when i take off and press on the speed

Not knowing the vehicle and year etc all I can tell you is that your vehicle is getting too much fuel (too rich). That is what causes black smoke. Blue smoke is oil being burned. Have a mechanic check your engine fueling for being too rich. Some newer vehicles can only use regular fuel, this can be the issue if you're using a higher grade of fuel. Too many things to mention since you haven't supplied any info about your vehicle.

White smoke is caused by engine coolant / antifreeze being processed in the combustion chamber(s) of the engine

Keep in mind that, on a cold day you may see what appears to be white smoke from the exhaust that will disappear after the vehicles engine has warmed up to it's normal operating temp.. This is a normal reaction called condensation... condensation is the result of a small amount of water/dew being drawn into the exhaust usually collecting in the muffler and/or the catalytic converter.

Hope helps.

Smoke, smoke, smoke and alternator/fan belt shredded

If 1994 Suzuki equip with air condition then please check the A/C compressor clutch.

The compress clutch can lock up on a defect ai/c pump and cause the belt to smoke.

Please check for a fail a/c pump first and get back to me.

An fair A/C pump can be bypass via an a/c pump bypass pulley (as picture below)

Color of smoke from exhaust pipe

Hi dluv, the smoke you are seeing is that of burning oil, and is not a good sign.what is the make,model,year and mileage of this vehicle? Also how much oil do you add to this vehicle between oil changes? and how long has it been smoking? The smoke you see is an indication of ring failure.On the pistons in an engine there are a series of "piston rings" the "scraper rings" which remove excess oil from the cylinder walls are failing.Some vehicles will run for quite some time in this condition providing oil level is maintained, however the engine is in need of repair, to determine if the vehicle is worth the repair you should have a compression test and a leak down test performed as well as an oil pressure test. This will help determine the level of repair which can get costly.There are also oil additives that will appear to eliminate or reduce this blue smoke you see but beware as this is a "bandaid fix" and in general the more dishonest people in our world will use these additives in order to sell a vehicle easier as no one wants an oil burning engine for a daily driver.I am available for chat in the evenings if you would like more info of what you can do and how to go about, good luck to you and please let me know how you make out

HI meekeyez,
'cruiser smelling of exhaust smoke' most cruisers that have age on them will have worn hindges and nolonger seal the rear doors and allow the exhaust smoke at the rear to seap in as the vehicle travels along due to the vortex affect that recoiles behind the vehicle check the rear cargo door seals and replace or adjust if needed as for your smoke problem i need more imfo is it blue smoke or black smoke is your cruiser petrol or desiel powered.
kind regards ****.
