1993 Johnson 120, after running well for a few hours. Would not restart after about a 15 minute break. Lots of smoke.


Color of smoke is hint re issue. Black is excess carbon, blue is oil being burned, white is water
(steam). Which is it, then take it from there.

What's the firing order on 1988 GMC S-15 4x4 and can jumped timing cause blue smoke out of the exhaust?


Blue smoke is almost always oil in the cylinders. It's caused by bad valve seats or bad rings. Timing won't cause blue smoke.

My fiat scudo has loss of power when I start it in the morning it gives white n blue smoke after 15 minutes it's back to normal can any1 help


Sounds like a bad seal of some sort, heavy white smoke indicates coolant entering the cylinder heads while bluish smoke is oil burning. It could be that itgoes away when it heats up because the metal expands and closes the gap. Check your oil as well as when a head gasket is bown there is normally a milkyness to it.

My smoke comes through my pipe


Well, it's the type of smoke that really matters. Does it smoke black? Blue? White? White for the first ~2 miles/5 minutes of warm up is not a bad thing, just blowing out condensation. White smoke that never stops is a sign your head is warped/head gasket is busted. Blue smoke is a sign that you're burning oil bad. Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel condition.

Smoke problem


hey
there are couple of smoke type.blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
