Bad plug. even worse gas.
2 stroke oil breaks down and makes the fuel dirty after so long in the gas can. Also check your filter to assure its not got alot of leaf debris. -Jeff Anchorage Small engine repair.

Ok so I have a 1996 golf gti and for some reason it will blow out this really thick cloud of white smoke when I try to step on it and go fast it happends every time in second gear when I hit 4,000 rpm but...


First thing - How Many Miles does this Golf Have?
Which engine does it have?
Diesel? Smoke on acceleration indicates the injection pump may need attention.
Gas Engine? Don't believe a turbocharger was a factory option - so - smoke on acceleration is probably piston rings - usually happens after a lot of miles. Best way to confirm that is by running a compression test - dry/wet test - warm up engine, check compression (dry part) - then - add a couple squirts of oil to the cylinder and check compression again.
If the added oil increases compression by 20 to 30 PSI or more / you have compression ring issues.
Let me know if this helps you out
thanks

Crankcase pressure


At IDLE the PCV does not open very much and therefore there may not be a vacuum under the valve cover.. maybe a couple psi. Try holding your hand over it and increase the idle? Does the air stop or reverse? (as you increase engine speed, the vac in the intake manifold increases and opens the PCV more so it will pull more gases out.) If so, I'm thinking you're OK. If your rings were really bad and you were getting lots of blow by you'd probably be seeing a Check Engine light (and other problems), and the air coming out would have smoke/oil vapor in it. No oil in the air cleaner? If 'no', then again, probably not excessive blowby. If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll check mine and get back to you how much is coming out of mine. Is it running OK otherwise?

My 2001 xj cherokee TD blows excessive smoke when the engine is under pressure.


Sounds like a broken oil ring. As far as the engine stalling, if your really low on oil the motor will shut down so as not to damage any bearings and other internal parts. Does the engine seem to be turning over faster and taking longer to start than usual and take a little longer to stop when you turn the engine off. If so you could have an issue with the compression rings in one or more cylinders. Do a compression test. If the #s are near where they should be it's likley oil rings. If the #s are low it's likley the compression rings. Either way if its one of those issues you'll need to overhaul your engine

1997 mazda e2000 van which is blowing black smoke


if it takes 5-10 mins of running before black smoke disappear i think you could have broken rings causing engine oil into the combustion chamber. you could observe white smoke if you have just changed oil.
solution would be to replace piston rings. it would save u a lot if u could diy.

2001 yz `125 bogs on hard throttle and blows a lot of smoke


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides worn and or seals worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and are literally pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Have 82 ford truck f150 runs for abut 5-15 mins than dies getin gas chang full pups two times same thant runs and die


Hmmm...maybe piston ring failure, valve seal failure, rich air/fuel mixture or maybe a head gasket (however that is normally white smoke due to coolant burning instead of oil). If it's so dark that it's almost blue then I can tell you that somehow oil is getting into the cylinder and burning alongside the air and fuel. Your best case scenario is that the engine is running rich (Rich:Too much fuel, Lean:Too much air) and the smoke is a dark grey to black color. CAUSES OF SMOKE

Engine only runs with choke on. Blue smoke comes out and engine runs rough or not at all


sounds like you have a bad Ring on the Piston or a blown head possibly. Blue smoke means Oil is getting into the combustion chamber. Full choke means you have to give this 'broken' engine a lot of gas to compensate for it's problem.
Do you change the oil at least once a year? Filthy oil or a lack of oil will kill an engine

Chevy Aveo strange smell and smoke coming through the vent with air conditioning on. Checked engine-OK. Turned up air conditioning full blast...after 30 seconds...little more smell and smoke it stopped...


If the blower motor is still working, that was not the problem-the strange smell might have been from some bacteria in the plenium, and the smoke may have just been the result of condensation from the evaporator in the plenium-keep an eye on it, but if the blower is working, I would not be overly concerned about it.
