Smoke from engine now car wont start

HI i bought a skyline r33 gtr recently and it was running fine, then it started hesitating on and off and the rev's at idle speed would go down and run lumpy, i had a feeling it could be spark plugs or coil packs, so i bought new spark plugs and fitted them it seems to run alright for a bit then it started running lumpy again. Then just recently it started running really it started idling at 100 rpm THATS RIGHT 100!! but the car still didn't cut out so i drove it home and when i got home there was smoke coming from the engine bay it looked white but it was dark and it didn't smell like oil and the car now just cuts out when i try to start it and even with foot on gas it starts then dies as soon as i let my foot off but if i hold my foot on at a certain point it wants to die then it goes up then wants to die again then goes up! I;ve tried to be as descriptive as i can i hope someone has the patients to reply

    I will hav eto agree with goof. Check the compression and timing.. If that checks out okThen move to the throtle position sensor.

The injector could definitely trigger a misfire code, but you also mentioned that you had a mass airflow sensor code , that code code be responsible for te sluggish moment of the vehicle and rpm going up and down. However if you have a misfire onCyl#6 and the coil and the plug is good the ONLY other thing to cause a mis-fire would be the injector. To check the injector get a NOID light, you can get one at almost any auto-parts place. To use unplug injector plug from the bad injector and connect it to NOID light the light should have a steady PULSE/ligt flickering. If light flickers fine then injector is bad and will need to be replaced. If light doesn't flicker or flickers intermittently then you may have a bad wiring to that injector. Check if wiring is good, then you may have a bad cam sensor or sensor gear. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

I would suspect a vacuum leak. At idle under high vacuum the air fuel mix is being leaned out until you have misfiring so bad the engine quits. The exhaust smells rich because even a lean mixture, if it doesn't light off, if full of unburned fuel. At road speeds, the vacuum is low so the engine doesn't care if there is a small leak somewhere. It is getting most of its air through the open throttle. Check all your vacuum lines but remember that even if every line is okay, it could still be leaking from an old cracked intake manifold gasket.

Check the timing and compression of the engine. It sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or a the timing jumped.

Hello

I just worked on this problem a couple of days ago. If the motor is a 3.0 liter. The idle control valve is located at the bottom of the throttlebody assembly right below the bore for the throttle butterflies..What usually causes this valve to go bad is the mechanical part of the sensor sticks as it becomes sludged or carboned up. Manufacturer claims that the valve cannot be cleaned and should only be replaced....It's a high dollar repair to replace this sensor as your engine coolant flows through this electrical valve. The valve idles the car fast when cold, as the antifreeze gets hot the valve drops the idle down.....I have successfully cleaned several of these valves and cured the dying problems...
First remove the air filter top cover and the tubes that connect to the throttlebody. In the right throttlebody you will see a port right before the butterfly. Under the throttlebody you have a black plastic sensor with a 2 wire terminal. Remove the 2 phillps screws and pull off the electrical part of the valve. you will feel a magnetic pull while removing. Remove slowly and catch the black sealing oring, and there will be a metal washer also.. The shaft that is exposed is the mechanical control of the valve. Rotate the shaft and it should feel sticky if bad..Using a throttlebody spray cleaner spray into the small square port of the right bore, rotate shaft and spray until stickfree.....Reassemble

the one thing in your statment is the knockes/knocking this what is known as the big ends and indicates the engine is under pressure and needs a lot of repair.If when you start the engine when cold if you stand at the back of the car and if the smoke coming out of the exhaust has a blue tint/ie like a old ladys hair tint ,as im sure you will see.[bottom line] the engine needs replaced.adrian,,,,

R33 nissan skyline turbo over heated.the radiator exploded due to bottom radiator hose clamped shut causing no water flow i started it a couple of times after that.but now it wont start it almost does...


Hi this is really bad, first thing the overheating may have warped the head on the motor so i would get that checked by a pro before you do anything including starting it as it will do even more damage, second the water leaking near water pump will be from the gasket which would have blown out/split from the pressure which also maybe why water has ended up in your airbox, third the oil on the road can really only leak from the engine so the block maybe cracked too.
The best solution would be take to a pro and get an assessment but i wouldnt be suprised if the motor needs a lot of repair work im sorry to say hope this helps

Skyline car???


the R32 + 33 skylines are good motor cars, from a 2nd hand point of view, make sure they have been maintained and not excessivly modified, as a nissan mechanic the biggest problem with the skylines are when people increase the turbo boost without bigger intercoolers or fuel systems, this will eventually destroy the motor.
If you can find one, buy an unmodified one, or one that has been modified correctly.
Also be aware the timing belt and platnum spark plugs neede to be replaced every 100,000km or 60,000miles, this can be an expensive job...

Nissan R34 CRASH BAR


when saying crash bar do you mean roll bar? or the front bumper support?

if roll bar, i believe it will fit with minor adjustments on the floorboard.

if the bumper support. i dont think so. the r34 has a slightly more square design on the front end and would not make for a good switch.

in theory if you can weld you can get anything to fit. good luck hope they put a skyline section up for ya...ya lucky bastard. youve got my dream car. have a nice day
