Hi,
The puff of white smoke is a good indication of the valve guides going bad... when off the oil seeps down and lays on top of the piston and then poof when you start it....also will use oil when running but not enough to make it smoke visibly....
eventually you will need to work on it, but no hrm in running it till then....

Sorry but white smoke is a sign of water getting into 1 or more cylinders.I would pull the oil dipstick and see if it looks like a creamy color.If it does then you may have a blown head gasket or a crack in the engine block somewhere.

White smoke heavy when started and then goes away...drives and after awhile rides alittle rough..Iwas told it might be something else besides head gaskets....


Depends on how much smoke. A little puff that goes away quickly is no cause for concern the flat six engine does get oil deposits under the piston skirt when parked and is considered normal.

Excessive smoke (fogging for mosquites) indicates a failed oil \ air separator. Confirm by removing the oil fill cap with the engine running - if the vacuum tries to **** your hand into the oil tube, your separator is a goner.

Not excessively difficult to replace yourself. The part is about $300 and you can replace it in a couple of hours, it is located at the rear of the engine, passenger side, top.

Engine bogs big puffs of white smoke from front


the engine will bog because the cutting blades are either cutting to much grass or the blades are touching the ground making it hard to keep rpm's then it will smoke a bit

When I start my 1998 plymouth grand voyager I get 1 big puff of white smoke. What could the problem be?


It sounds like oil is seeping into the cylinders while the car is stationary and then being burnt off in one big puff of smoke when you start the engine. You're probably also burning oil when the car is running. You may notice that you have to constantly add oil to keep the level up. It's not uncommon for old engines to burn oil. The proper fix would involve either a ring job or a valve job both of which involve quite a bit of labor. If you had to pay a mechanic to fix it, it may cost more than the car is worth. It not a great solution from the air pollution standpoint but you could probably continue driving the car for years by just adding oil as needed. You may have to replace the spark plugs more often because the burning oil will tend to foul them.

White smoke from the exhaust when I start the car


Hi!

What type of smoke can you see---

white smoke-
If you see a wispy, lingering white smoke that has a bittersweet smell, this is an indication that your car's engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers. This may be due to a leaky head gasket, or in a worst case scenario, a cracked cylinder head.

Make sure to take your car to the shop right away to get it fixed.
Thick white smoke---
If your vehicle is belching white smoke upon start-up, it is a sign that transmission fluid is entering the combustion chambers, possibly though a vacuum tube that connects the engine to the transmission.
This type of smoke can be confused with the normal puff of steam during start-up. If you are not sure, have your car inspected at the shop.

Blue/White Smoke--
A blue/white smoke is an indication that oil is being sucked into the combustion chambers through the valve guides. A quick fix for this problem is by replacing the valve seals. Valve seals are small, umbrella shaped pieces of rubber.

Do rate the solution.

Thanks
Rylee.

Engine smokes


There are only two things that cause smoke, one is oil,the other is coolant, coolant has a really nauseating smell, most likely the oil is your smoke, it is caused by worn valve guides and or leaking valve stem seals, if it doesn't use more than a quart every 1000 miles I would not worry about it, how many miles on the car?
