2001 dodge ram 2500 cumins diesel motor is running rough and has white smoke coming from the exhaust What can the problem be Drained water from the fuel and it ran good for a little while?
White smoke is either from too low of an operating temperature or air in the fule system. Check to see if water temp is in normal range, change thermostat if not. If that isn't the problem Pop the hood and see if there is any fuel leaking any where; filter, injection pump, fuel lines or injectors. I had a loose injection line that caused the same problem, tightening it back doun fixed the problem.
Drain the filter again and catch what you drain. If there is water in there, you need to drain and clean your fuel tank.
also one other thing is white smoke can mean head gaskets are bad when you start it go to your exhust and smell for a sweet smell if so you do smell that then water is going into heads from radiatior or i know this for gas motor but diesel should be the same
An analysis of the exhaust is a test to determine what is coming out of the exhaust pipe. The idea is to properly burn up all the gasoline and not have any "leftovers". The test will determine if all emissions systems are working properly and the engine is running at optimum levels. Unburnt gasses will be detected if there is a problem. The engine will be checked at idle, and under load.
That is condensation due to the exhaust system being cold and the heat from the engine makes the exhaust system / pipes sweat. As the exhaust system heats up then that will stop. Now you said WATER not antifreeze. If you had engine coolant running out of the exhaust then it would be the color of the antifreeze and it would be steaming WHITE and then you would have an engine problem, MAYJOR. You said…
The three things that could cause black smoke which come to mind are: 1) You have a belt or pulley problem which is causing the belt to slip and burn. 2) You have an oil leak that is getting on to the exhaust and burning. 3) The mower is running rich. Which means it is getting too much gas. The most common of these is choice 1. Oil leaks don't normally get onto the exhaust…
95 Ford Laser Not driven for 1 year but started frequently Recently I have noticed water coming from the exhaust pipe Could this be a sign of serious engine problem?
If you have black smoke coming out it would be because you have bad timings, i have a buddy who had that happen to his jeep and we replaced the spark plugs and air filter and fixed the timing and it solved the problem, but wen you blow black smoke its because of bad timing it happens with diesels to.
