Most people consider white smoke to be oil burning in the engine. But that is not always the case. If the carburetors are pouring too much fuel into the motor that can cause white smoke to pour out of the motor. If oil or antifreeze got into the exhaust system , that could take a few miles to burn out causing white smoke. Lets assume the bike was laying on it's side for a few hours. Did you check your air filter and air box to see if they were full of oil. An overlooked air filter clogged with oil may be all that is causing this issue.

I have a 1997 gmc sierra 5.7 vortec, just changed plugs and wires, now it hiccups at idle, And excessive white smoke and gas smellout the exhaust any ideas?


If you have white smoke out the tail pipe you have a problem with antifreeze entering the fuel system and burning with the fuel .
You see the white smoke isn't smoke its steam from the water in the antifreeze .
Witch leaves with 1 of 2 problems head gasket or intake manifold gasket .
Being that its a chevy engine I would say its the intake manifold they have had a problem with this disgin for over 30 years not enough bolts to much glue .
Over heat this engine once the glue melts and it starts leaking because of the pressure .
The bigger problem you have is if you run this engine the antifreeze will get behind the pistion rings any wreck the engine in under a month.
So do something quickly if you want to save it
Good luck

When my bike is running I get white smoke from the right side exhaust and the right side also blows harder than the left. What could this be?


IF you are running stock pipes (not "True Duals"), the right pipe exhaust ALL from the front cylinder, and SOME of the rear, and the left pipe only blows SOME of the rear alone.

The stock rear pipe splits, some going to the left pipe by itself, and the rest going to the right pipe WITH the exhaust from the front cylinder.

Now, white smoke usually indicates moisture.
Being a (non-VRod) Harley, that eliminates the liquid coolant, because there is none.

Next up that comes to mind is condensation.
BUT, this would burn off fairly quickly.

So is the white smoke only at first, or even when warmed up?
And if warmed up, is it actually coming OUT of the pipes, or OFF the pipes (like some oil burning)?

White smoke coming from my suzuki intruder lc 1500


First check carb gasket. White smoke usually mean cooler leeks (for liquid cooled engines)- suspect head gasket. But this is just if smoke coming from exhaust not engine.

White smoke


Are you sure the smoke is white? White smoke is usually caused by antifreeze burning.(This could be a head gasket)

If the smoke is actually light gray it is oil burning.(This would be rings or valve seals)

If it smokes mostly on startup and then stops when it warms up (It could be a worn valve guide or deteriorated valve guide seal (or possibly several) allowing a tiny amount of oil into one or more cylinders).

If it smokes mostly when you are cornering (It could be too much oil in the crankcase).

Please rate this a fixya

White smoke from one tail pipe


As u know - that smoke is oil . can be cause by restricted breather or oil filter, worn valve guide or seals. or a bad piston ring which seems the most likely if its just coming outa one pipe. A compression test will tell ya if thats it
