Check air fuel mixture screw on the carb possibly air fuel ratio is not proper adjust it or check if your spark plug is oil wet after a brief run (otherwise should be brownish ) that means oil is leaking in the piston head due to worn out piston rings have to replace them

My 2002 pt cruiser only smokes when I sart it, and then it dissipates. can you tell me what is causing this?


Smoking at startup can be one of two things....water or oil.
Moisture buildup in the muffler will show up as white smoke on startup, usually more noticeable on cooler mornings than on warm days. Blue smoke on startup is usually caused by small amounts of oil that leak past the valve seals as they get older, worn, and dry out. This is not usually a major issue unless and until it gets to the point of causing oil-fouling of the spark plug(s). Then you must either repair the problem or be prepared to clean your spark plug(s) periodically if the engine starts to display a noticeable misfiring.

I am experiencing problems with my BMW 320i - 2004 model. It does not start easily. When it starts, a blue fuel smoke comes from the exhaust. this causes the car also to be heavy on fuel consumptio


Blue smoke is caused by oil. Rich running causes black smoke and will set the check engine light. Rich running (black smoke) on startup could be caused by a leaking injector. The blue smoke puff at startup is likely valve stem seals leaking or a bad crank case vent malfunction and sucking oil into the manifold at high vacuum conditions.

Blue smoke on startup warm engine


If you have a turbo, a shaft seal may be leaking some oil. Otherwise, the valve seals may be hard or worn enough to pass some oil during 'off' time. As long as it smokes only at startup, there is probably little to worry about until it begins smoking all of the time--then it will be time to replace the leaking seals which can be done without removing the heads. You might try a seal-softener additive in the oil or use 'high mileage' oil which contains seal softener. It also helps loosen sticking rings as well. Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and white smoke at startup and now severe white smoke on occasion when driving. 16k miles, I drive about 600 miles a month.


White smoke during startup is indicative of a blown head gasket and/or cracked cylinder head..
Have the cylinders pressure tested to verify.
Do not use engine additives to try and stop the leak. They do not work.

Thanks for using FixYa - please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue.

F150 5.4 liter v8 running rough, white smoke being exhausted on startup


White smoke while running usually indicates water in the combustion chamber (bad head gasket or cracked head) but white smoke on startup only is usually a sign of unburnt fuel (rich mixture). Either bad injectors, injector seals? Maybe something else That's assuming it's fuel injected
