HAVE you checked your Engine breather tube to make sure it is not blocked causing oil to blow back onto engine block.

I have 2002 mazda bounty 2.5 diesel when it starts up it runs really rough and blows out blue smoke but comes right when warms up.I replaced glow plugs, fuel and filter, oil and filter 6mths back and it...


firstly change oil every 6000kms and a oil filter every third oil, change ,blue smoke is a sign of oil consumption whitish gray is a sign of excess fuel from worn injection system .How many miles does this vehicle have on it ? Could the valve guides need new seals and the valve cleaned and re-lapped in .then maybe new piston rings ,.Also use the cheapest oil for a diesel you find from a supermarket using expensive long life oils can cause the engine to build up too much carbon clag inside the the engine so cheap oil, and change it often is my advice ,but without a look under the bonnet myself i couldnt even think of whats wrong

Smokes blue smells like diesel when revved up


Blue smoke is oil. If you have visible oil smoke and the diesel smell which would be associated with the burnt oil you should be getting your engine looked at by qualified mechanics. You have a serious problem which could easily turn into a new engine if not looked into soon. It could be bad rings, worn engine, stuck valve(s), burnt valve(s), all of which are repairable.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

I have a 99 Saab 9-5 2.3L turbo. When I shifted it would blow white smoke for a second. Yesterday it started billowing smoke then died. Now it won't start and it turns over very rough. Please help.


Generally white smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine.
Its possible you have blown the head gasket and coolant is leaking into one or more of the cylinders.
You could pull the spark plugs and check for coolant - also run a compression test.

Toyota Caldina 1999, too smoke from exhaust


if it is diesel and you have black smoke you need fuel injectors either serviced or replaced also you must check the engine valves clearance. If your smoke is blue white smelling unburned fuel renew injectors.If it is blue white smelling oil and diesel then you will have piston rings and valve steam seals.

New Suzuki Swift smoke coming out of bonnet


A wet and dry compression test, and a cylinder leak down test will narrow down this issue.
It's not unusual for an engine to smoke slightly until it's warmed up, especially if the choke is set a little rich. With only 400 miles, the rings are certainly not yet completely worn in and are not sealing yet. Depending on the oil used, driving habits, the engine can not be expected to be completely broken in for at least a couple thousand and as much as 5k miles. I used synthetic oils from the start, and the rings didn't start to seal well for 7k miles. It still uses very little oil at 88k miles, although piston slap is now evident cold, and another o/haul is scheduled for this winter.
Does that make sense?
