Check the oil level on the dip stick, sounds like it is over filled.

My lawnmower started to flutter till it died while shooting white smoke. Any suggestions?


The white smoke points to the oil and fouled spark plugs.
Make sure the oil level is according to the gauge.

Intercooled 3.1 1996 horizson. replaced turbo. still getting white smoke. water is overheating with in 10mins of driving. losing half to one litre oil.


the HONDA Horizon (Isuzu wonder box)
what engine. exactly .?
3.2 L 6VD1 SOHC V6
3.2 L 6VD1 DOHC V6
3.5 L 6VE1 DOHC V6
3.0 L 4JX1 TD I4
3.1 L 4JG2 TD I4
x1 or G2?

floods, wot cranking cuts fuel and starts any flooded engine,
it's overheating that wins the First order failures rule sets.
nothing else matters. cure that first.! find cause! first.

sounds (im deaf there,lol) that smoke is out tail pipe end and dissipates fast and is not smoke but steam, , oil smoke smells like burning oil and lingers. steam smells sweet like burning Antifreeze.
AF steam is a blown head gasket or far worse.
do a compression test first to see if it's even worth fixing????
most are NOT. (unless free labor, sure)

first learn steam from smoke
serious , watch moms tea pot. see that steam goes away fast.and very uniquely , now watch burning oil.
remove dip stick, drop the drip of oil on hot exhaust manifold.
smell that, that is oil burning, and lingers.
this will last you a life time of blown engines..... just one look and bingo. (my instructor in 1965 did in front of class)

got oil in the AF/ CARBON chunks in same.
water in oil, ? pan, engine . milky oil.
rad leak down test fail? can be lots of reasons even a cracked block.or head. not just gaskets.

My Toro has been great! But today saw white smoke from exhaust. Checked oil & added some. Few minutes later blew clouds of white smoke & air filter dripping oil. Did I just blow a head gasket?


Sounds more like the engine has been tipped, oil can then enter the air filter box via the engine crankcase breather, allow the engine to run with the filter removed until the smoke clears, refit a new filter if it is a paper element type and try again.

Nissan maxima 2000. Oil dipstick level shows too high. Regular oil changes done and filter with proper amount added. White smoke alerted me to recheck things. Only thing I found was dipstick shows oil


If the oil level goes up, something has to be leaking into the engine oil pan.
That would either be gasoline from the injectors or coolant from the radiator. If you are not adding coolant, it could be a leaking injector.

Range Rover TD6 HSE (2004) Constant White/Grey Blue Smoke from exhausts.Recent oil and filters change.Not apleasent smell either.


Blue smoke means it's burning oil, and white smoke means there's water in the exhaust.

Added together, you may have a blown head gasket. Although it's an expensive fault, leaving it in the hope of improvement (it will not fix itself and there is no quick fix alternative) will just add more cost to an expensive repair.

I sincerely hope that I'm wrong, but you need to get the vehicle to a garage that you trust asap and get them to do a quick cheap "sniff test" on the engine coolant. It's also possible that your engine's turbocharger has failed; this possibility is stronger if you've stretched the oil or filter changes, used incorrect oil or poor quality filters, or if you have turned the engine off immediately after a hard run (all turbocharged engines should be left to idle for around a minute before turning off after either a long high speed run, a steep hill under load or when towing a heavy trailer). A failed turbocharger is also expensive but there's less labour involved.

I hope that you have found my reply to be of use; please take a moment to rate my answer.

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

White smoke


the white smoke is oil - did you overfill the oil ? if you tipped the machine your air filter could be full also - if this is an old machine it could be ready to throw a rod but not enough info from you to tell
