    won't start!! After sitting for several hours, with the choke on full it will try to fire once or twice and belch out a puff of white smoke from the exhaust

    When running is the exhaust smoke black, blue or white? IF black your engine is getting too much fuel IF blue you are burning oil. IF White you have water in your system.

Even with a good spark you may need to check the points for proper setting and verify they are opening everytime. Check the plug wire to see if it is grounding out. Is there fresh gas in the tank and is the choke sticking on?

I'm having rough idle and smoke all of a sudden with my golf mk4 The oil warning lights up in dash. Oil level ok. Spark plugs not burning well. Replace spark plugs, changed oil filter, changed


Smoke is not a good sign. Running rough is not a good sign. Oil light not a good sign. You could have a combination of bad things, most likely expensive. Suggest professional help. Smoke can be bad rings or holed piston. Low oil pressure can be bad bearing or oil pump.

Changed oil in bmw e36 now spark plug socket and spark plug are showing engine oil (old) Shop gave me wrong oil filter so have not started car yet as I do not have the right filter Also I changed air


IF there is a sleeve around the spark plugs then when replacing the plugs replace the seal under that sleave as well or rocker cover oil will leak out past the plug base.. If you want the correct oil filter you may have to buy genuine . Run fault codes to find the reason for rough idle . It may be a vacuum hose is off or cracked or loose.

Ford 1981 f 150 not running changed Coil distributor cap Roar arm plug wires did not help started bur ran extremely rough then died


motors need 3 things to run properly. gas spark and compression. the starting point. also spark timing.
the motor you are dealing with is easy. i just rebult a 1978. anyways sounds like a timing problem . first i would check the distributer. if all is ok spay a squirt of starting fluid in the air filter, or even wd40.,,,,,,,see if it is gasoline problem. isolate where the problem is.

I just got a 1994 yz 125 and when i was riding it ,.. it would run good as long as i was going slow and not raping out the gears .. but when i would give it a lot of gas to take off it would bog out and...


if the plug is sooty your float is set wrong the air filter should have oil on it to catch dirt.sounds like a carb problem although it could be the power valve

Engine runs rough, burns tons of oil, and keps shutting down


Could be too much oil. Check oil livel and make sure that the oil is not too thin (gasoline in oil). Install new spark plug, add premium fuel in tank and start engine without the air filter (air filter could be dirty or soaked in oil). Run for a while to see if condition improves (no or less smoking). Replace air filter while the engine is running to see if it makes a difference in performance. If installing air filter had no effect, and engine continues to smoke most likely valve guides or rings are faulty. Hopefully it will clear up. Good luck
