Does it use any oil, or lose any coolant? If not, do you make a lot of short trips, then shut it off by chance? If your not using oil, or coolant, then I'd say take it on a long drive at highway speeds to drive out the moisture laying in your exhaust system. Recently had a muffler go on wife's car that does a lot of short trips, and old muffler was almost full of water from condensation and obviously poor exhaust design, that allowed it to build up like that. Took it next night on trip about an hour away. Every time I took off, or passed a car, white smoke rolled out the back. On way home, it stopped and cleared up.

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.

Hi, My Sidekick starts to "putter" as i drive like it's not getting enough fuel. Then when I accelerate it blows large amounts of white smoke out the exhaust. It did this once before last summer...


White smoke always means that oil is getting into the cylinder. This will make the car sputter. You have to find out why the oil is getting in there. It needs to go to a mechanic because it could be any number of reasons why the oil is getting in.

1996 pajero 4WD transmission making loud noises intermitently. Front wheel indicator lights flash on dash during and stay flashing after noise has stopped. Have put into 4WD mode and back to 2WD but...


mechanic is in error
smoking on acceleration after idling ( at lights etc) is valve stem seals
blue smoke on acceleration while travelling is an indication of excessive big end bearing clearance overloading the oil control rings
you don't say what type of transmission you have but if it is a CV transmission it could be a failing drive belt in the transmission especially if you have added normal atf oil at any time

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?


state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.

I have a 1992 honda prelude. During a hard acceleration, the car fails to accelerate. Instead, it produces rough sound as if it is not getting a consistant amount of fuel. Slow acceleration is OK. Also...


Check for free play on distrubtor.
If you has a known good disturbutor then do the swap.

===== Lite white smoke during warm up is OK.
If the white smoke is still noticable after 15 minutes of start up then you should start monitor the coolant level and oil level.
If the temp. is raising then it can be stage one of blown headgasket.

Keep track of the temp. and make sure the oil is not getting a white/creamy texture.
DO NOT drive it if it's overheating.

White smoke from exhaust


Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
Rich
