Question about 2001 Triumph Legend TT

1 Answer

Smokey exhaust When I fire the Legend up in the morning (on Choke) the R/h exhaust emits noticeable exhaust fumes - enuf to be noticeable, albeit not like an E-boat be honest I would not even have thought about it as being unusual - except that you can't see any exhaust fumes from the L/h exhaust! (I usually have a ciggy whilst the bike warms up a bit / I drop the choke down - so have time to notice these things ). I had noticed it before it started getting a bit colder here in the mornings - but certainly now looks more pronounced due to the chill.....I am sure (hope!) their is a logical explanation........

Nothing to worry about. On mine, I can really see the difference when the temperature is below 20 degrees (F). There is a ton of water vapor coming out of the right hand exhaust but only a little bit from the left.

Gas Fumes in Air Vents

This could be as simple as a hole in the exhaust under the cabin area. I would also check that all cylinders are firing properly. They can do a fuel pressure test to make sure there is nothing wrong in the line as well.

Van runs good when cold but when hot runs sluggish & smokey loss off power

sounds like the choke mechanism is stuck on. Could be lambda sensors (exhaust gas sensors) Post again with details of vehicle and as much detail of vans behaviours so you can receive more detailed advice

Using antifreeze but i see no visible leak

If you exhaust is constantly emitting white exhaust fumes the whitest color is your coolant being extracted from an internal gasket leaking

I have a 2000 volvo S70 i smell fumes in side car when driving went to get exhaust checked no problem there what can the problem be?

What type of fumes are they exhaust or oil burning.
Exhaust ..Idle engine and put glove on hand put hand over the tail pipe and if engine stops in 20 seconds then the exhaust is good if it keeps running then its the exhaust is your problem..
2 if ex ok then its due to the breather pipe on the engine and it should go back into the inlet manifold to be reburnt but if its not fitted or rubber hose split or broken then thats what you can smell.
So check out under the bonnet and see if you can smell or see any smokey fumes or sucking noise.
Can you see smoke when you start engine.
Let me know ASAP Ron
