Could be bad piston rings, or if its a 2 stroke engine (probably not) then you could have too much oil in the oil/gas mixture. maybe even too much oil in the crankcase.

My engine smoke excessively even when hot. I hag the head gasket fixed about 3 years ago but its burning anti freeze regularly around town and not on the highway.


You still have a leak somewhere! It could be the Head Gasket/Warped Head, Intake Gasket, Timing Cover. Have a Mechanic look at this before you cause severe and costly damage.

Abnormal exhaust smoke


definitely an oil consumption problem. How many miles? Could be worn rings and or valve guides. The oil light on when hot indicates low level or possible or weak oil pump. Check compression for possible head gasket or cracked head. I wouldn't drive it untill diagnosed.

Push mower is running poorly and created excessive grey smoke. Checked and cleaned spark plug. Removed and reinstalled carburetor after adjusting float and needle. Checked fuel, is clean and water free....


Suggest removing the carburetor again, remove and clean the main jet plus the emulsion tube which is located behind the main jet. Look into the throat of the carburetor and find a short brass tube sticking into the venturi area a small amount. Use the flat face of a screwdriver to push down on that tube which should now fall out of the body. Use spray carburetor cleaner to wash these parts and use a toothpick to poke out any plugged holes. Make sure the fuel is fresh. Change the oil if you have not done so already. Hope this helps!

2002 TDR 125: excessive white smoke from exhaust driving at 65 k...


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. WHITE SMOKE on start-up can is usually caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals. Smoke that is constant while riding is usually caused by valve to guide and piston ring clearances that have exceeded service wear limits.
3. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Smokes bad when burner kicks on


Hey mate,

What brand of burner are you running? I am a Karcher Tech but they all work on the same principle,

Your burner is getting to much diesel/kero, most have little flow swicthes on them to tell them to pump fuel or spark when there is water present in the burner coil, if this switch is faulty or getting a faulse reading then it will tell the unit to pump fuel when it is not needed and this will cause very excessive smoke for the first few mins when the burner kicks in...

If you have the excessive smoke continuously(even after 10 mins of continous use then it is probable that your fuel pump/system is running to rich, these units need regular servicing and adjustments as fuel nozzles/components wear,

There is alot of precise adjustments and checks on these units and i would reccommend getting it checked by a qualified tech, as when there is heated fuel and spark these units can be dangerous!

Hope this helps

Regards
Brad

Engine problems on a kx 250 2 stroke


On a 2 stroke bike cause of smoke is due to excess oil in the fuel oil mixture, incomplete combustion in the cylinder or the engine oil finding it way in through the piston rings into the firing chamber. Check the oil levels and clean the plugs, which must be black in color by now, so replace if possible and if engine oil is low, the change the piston rings. Also look up the carburetor jets/nozzles are clean and the engine gets the correct fuel/air mixture by adjusting both fuel and air jets(turns)...sodeep
