White smoke from exhaust after changing fuilds


Is it condensation or actual smoke? White smoke is associated with diesel mixed in petrol and with quite strong smells. I suspect that it is condensation as water vapor is a by product of combustion and the motor/exhaust will have to warm up to clear it. Check for water droplets at the end of the exhaust to confirm condensation. Burning oil will cause a blueish smoke to emit from exhausts.

Smokes when idling


general rule of thumb, metal expands when warm, Blue smoke is oil, white smoke is either A: water in your exhaust, B: excessive fuel
If you have white whispy smoke any time you idle, i would be checking your catalic converter, If you have blue smoke on idle at the time of start till your motor warms up id suggest it would be one or more piston rings with slight wear (normally first sign of serious wear) generally you can tell oil smoke by the colour and the smell. it will smell rather burnt and will be obnoxious. if it is white then its more than likely "steam" and of course carbon monoxide, so it should generally disapate very quickly. which is usually ur catalic converter or in some cases more serious the first sign of a blown head gasket as you get coolant (or anti-freeze) leaking into the combustion chamber. that can be pressure tested by ur local mechanic.
I hope this has helped cheers

I have a diesel engine that expells white smoke for 5 to 10 miniuts after start up? The exhaust also smells rich with fuel? I bought the truck used and am trying to fix the problems! Please help.


When an engine expels black smoke it means that the piston rings are going and is consuming oil. And when the color of smoke is white the engine is consuming more fuel. Both are harmful. Black to the engine and pocket while white to the pocket. It seems that the injector need careful attention.
Cold engine does expel white smoke initially. When the temperature rises to normal working temperature the smoke stops. This is normal in your case. 5 to 10 minutes to warm up is normal for any diesel engine. But any thing more than that needs attention.

White smoke is usually caused by a coolant leak into the motor.
You may have a blown head gasket.

My 1980 944 as the motor warms up it gradually begins to smoke a white smoke the cylander compression is good the plugs have a white color to them is it fuel injection ,maybe head gasket although there is...


White smoke suggests to me that your brake master cylinder may be leaking into your booster and the diaphragm may be split, thus allowing brake fluid into the engine.

Heap of white smoke on startup but not always


White smoke usually occurs when there is not enough heat to burn the fuel. The unburned fuel particles go out the tailpipe and typically produce a rich fuel smell. It's not unusual to see white smoke in the exhaust during cold weather until the engine warms up.

Faulty glow plugs or control module can cause white smoke on engine start up.

Low engine cranking speed may also produce white smoke.

If white smoke is still visible after the engine has warmed up, the engine may have one or more bad injectors, retarded injection timing or a worn injection pump.

Low compression or air in the fuel system can also be a source of white smoke.
