You are getting oil into the cylinders. Possibly bad seals on the valves or bad rings on the pistons.

My generator is smoking white smoke and almost dies out. had to shut off because of so much smoke. starts fine then within seconds starts acting up


if its squealing or making noise then the bushings inside the generator are bad. if not the windings inside the generator are not working properly. sounds like the generator is bad.

I changed the turbo now white smoke coming out of my exhaust


This seems to be a symptom of a blown head gasket.
White exhaust smoke is an indication of water / coolant in the exhaust. The car running sluggish and using lots of fuel can be caused by compression loss.

Look at the coolant level color and smell (with cold engine - don't open the high pressure reservoir with engine hot as hot coolant may spray you in the face). If you have a blown gasket, the coolant color may become brownish and it may smell bad or the level will get lower even if you have just refilled the cooling system.

What you can also check for is bubbles in the reservoir. With engine cold, remove the reservoir cap. Start the engine. Try to rev the engine (or have someone do it) and observe if there are bubbles in the reservoir tank. If you see lots of bubbles, you have a blown gasket.

Craftsman 5600 watt generator won't stay on and white smoke pours out when started.


try running it with nothing hooked up if it runs fine, then the power draw is to much for it that would cause it to hunt !!!

I have a 2.4kva generator, but some few days back it produces white smoke from the exhaust on start up which stops after 5 minutes. I don't know the cause of the problem and how to resolve it.


White smoke means you burn oil.

You need to have it fixed, the springs need replaced. Most likely it run too hot. If the cylinder is scratched then repair is more expesive than replacement,

good luck

white smoke is normaly an indication of water entering the combustion chamber of your engine due to a broken head gasket. I am surprised that it stoped but I think that the probelm will come back.

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.

I have a 1992 honda prelude. During a hard acceleration, the car fails to accelerate. Instead, it produces rough sound as if it is not getting a consistant amount of fuel. Slow acceleration is OK. Also...


Check for free play on distrubtor.
If you has a known good disturbutor then do the swap.

===== Lite white smoke during warm up is OK.
If the white smoke is still noticable after 15 minutes of start up then you should start monitor the coolant level and oil level.
If the temp. is raising then it can be stage one of blown headgasket.

Keep track of the temp. and make sure the oil is not getting a white/creamy texture.
DO NOT drive it if it's overheating.

Large amount of white smoke on first start of the day


Have you had the injector recall check carried out? There is a problem with these injectors and this produces the symptoms you are describing. I suggest that you contact Isuzu direct for help. They have been very helpful in the case of my trooper
