Starting problem and too much black smoke

hi Khalelul,

i think the problem is your piston rings or bore,
first of all please check the valve sheets rubbers.
and if it is low cost replace the piston rings set and check the results,
good luck.

My mazda 626 has a strong potent smell coming from the exhaust

You don't mention what that smell is reminiscent of?

You don't mention the colour of the "smoke" and you didn't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel?

You don't mention whether the road behaviour/performance is normal?

White smoke is almost always steam or in the case of a diesel it could be an unburned fuel mist, grey/black is excess fuel and blue or grey/blue is burning oil.

Some steam is fairly normal until the engine and exhaust system is hot but excessive amounts could be one symptom of head gasket trouble. If the engine is drinking coolant and sending it through the exhaust as steam it will sometimes smell spicy.

Burning oil smells a bit like burned eggs in the frying pan.

If the car hasn't ultra-low sulphur oil and fuel the catalytic converter will convert sulphur traces into hydrogen sulphide - the bad egg gas...

2002 honda shadow 750... Little white smoke is coming out of my exhaust.... After I ride for a few and stop at a stop light I get white smoke. A lil more then a cigarette no funny smell just smoke. Bike...

White is steam
Black is rich mixture
Blue is oil

Fuel has moisture in it and when the engine is cold you see steam. Once the engine gets hot, it should not be noticeable unless the weather is very cold.

If it continues to do it, check radiator level. If it is going down, check for leaks and bad cylinder head gaskets.

Drilling holes just makes more noise and reduces back pressure that the designer may have been looking for.

Black smoke coming from exhaust occasionally.

Black smoke is indicative of carbon or incomplete combustion caused by either poor ignition (weak spark) or too much fuel (choke setting). Check out these areas.

Smells like it is running rich? blue coming out pipes. Not tons, but enough,and guys riding behind can smell the bike running rich..

Blue smoke usually indicates that engine oil is being burned; black smoke usually indicates that your engine is running rich. Blue smoke usually has a more "rich" smell; black smoke may smell like gasoline (which is exactly what it is--partially unburned gas). (White smoke would indicate that you're burning coolant--usually the sign of a leaking head gasket.) In your case, I'd hope for black smoke over blue smoke. It's usually much cheaper to fix one than the other.

It's likely that you are having a problem with one (but not all) of your cylinders. One way to diagnose what's going on is to pull the spark plugs for each cylinder. Each should appear more or less white, possibly with some spotty deposits on it. A spark plug that is covered with fluffy black carbon isn't completely igniting the fuel in the cylinder; this could indicate a bad plug, a weak coil, or a carburetor out of adjustment. A spark plug that is oily shows that oil is leaking into the combustion chamber, most likely through worn valve guides or possibly a slipped ring on the piston itself.

While your spark plugs are out, it also makes sense to take a compression test of each cylinder. You can borrow a compression tester from many auto parts stores, and buying one isn't all that expensive, either. Test your compression with all the spark plugs pulled--that will let the engine turn over fastest and will generate the best readings. It's also best--though not always possible--to test the compression when the engine is warm. Expect a cold engine to test 10-15 psi lower than one that's been warmed up.

The compression test will show several things. First, look for consistency across all the cylinders. If one cylinder reads dramatically lower than the others, that's almost certainly where your problem is coming from. It's not particularly likely in this motor, but excessive carbon buildup can also make a cylinder read higher than it should.

If you find a cylinder with a low compression reading--and/or the spark plug has shown that something unique is happening in that cylinder--pour about a tablespoon of motor oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and retest. If your compression reading is much higher, then the problem is most likely in the piston rings rather than in the valves or valve guides.

The description of an older bike with highly aromatic blue smoke suggests to me that you may have an oil burning problem. If that's the case, you may be able to temporarily reduce oil consumption by bumping up to a heavier oil. However, some oil will continue to migrate into the combustion chamber until you fix the actual gap or place where the oil is leaking in. Ultimately, with blue smoke, the proper fix requires some engine work.

White smoke and the smell of burning rubber. I have had lots maintenance of work done to my car. I was starting to notice and smell burn oil. I had a small valve cover leak so I just had the whole...

You have stated two problems. Coming to second first. Smell of burning rubber. in the car rubber is only at two places where it can burn, The tyres, unlikely as you have not commented upon your driving habits. Some people like to rev the engine so much before take off that the tyres go burning for the first few hundred meters. And then there is rubber on the wires and cables. You have to check the wires for any heat while the engine is running.
Coming to the first now. White smoke is generally of unburnt fiel and not oil. Oil alwayd give black smoke and that is the indication you get when the exhaust is giving black smoke. That means that the engine is consuming oil. if it is white then that indicates that the engine is cold and burning more gas/diesel. Is your a diesel vehicle?? But as you say it from under the hood. And that too behind the engine block. May be that the gasket is leaking from somewhere. If you could check the engine oil level for a few days early in the morning before starting the engine. If the level drops and the exhaust tail pipe does not blacken your finger when you rub it in it would mean that the oil is being burnt. Now what I suggest is that with the engine running and hand brakes on, go under the car with hood open and try to locate the source of the smoke. I am sure you would be able to locate it.
Then we talk again.

Hard starting and to much smoke when engine running idle and sometimes fluctuation

Smoke usually there's a problem.... Bluish gray smoke means you're burning oil (could be a number of things like piston rings, valve seals)... White smoke means could mean you're burning transmission fluid, or there's a crack in the gasket or engine block.... Black smoke could mean you need your air filter changed, bad fuel injectors, bad distributor cap, ignition coil... I would guess it's probably black smoke coming out of your exhaust from the sounds of your symptoms...
