Having a dead skunk in the exhaust might be your problem. It's serious, I get it a lot in my Camaro.
if it smells like rotten eggs its a bad catalytic converter....chances are its this much more likely than a dead skunk.
If you nicked the oil pan it could cause it to smoke from engine area. Is the smoke coming from the exhaust or engine bay? If exhaust, then I highly doubt it was caused by the curb incident.
Exhaust of an engine is a gas.
Internal engine antifreeze leak what else could cause besides headgasket? there is no antifreeze in the oil it is clean
Exhaust leaks close to the engine.
Sorry to tell you but white smoke from the exhaust is caused by coolant entering the combustion chamber. You have a blown head gasket. STOP driving this vehicle or you will destroy the engine.
Yes, a prolonged exhaust leak will eventually cause problems with your cylinder head. The leaking exhaust is very hot and you can cause small cracks in the head if you don't repair the problem promptly. If you can hear the exhaust leaking, it may already be too late! Get it checked out soon!
An exhaust restiction, like a clogged catalytic convertor
No, any smoke is coming from the engine.No, any smoke is coming from the engine.
Moisture in the exhaust, or a cold running engine.
The engine is burning fuel.
have a mechanic check your turbo.most will tell u that a turbo blows black smoke but can aslso blow white smoke when turbo is malfunctioning
Yes, if it is leaking or if when it was replaced, oil leaked onto the exhaust or exhaust manifold.
From the intake, yes. From the exhaust, unlikely.
Not sure what "suck a valve" means, but running an engine with no exhaust could easily cause the exhaust valves to get hot enough to melt. Exhaust valves get very hot and if you just shut off the engine with no exhaust manifold in place the cold air can cause an exhaust valve to warp, then,next time you run the engine it will not seat properly.Many people don't understand and assume that if ANY part of the exhaust system is missing you can warp a valve but that fear is just the result of failing to understand the root cause of the problem. On the other hand, a lean burning engine can overheat the valves to the point that the metal can become soft.
Having a bad rod bearing could cause a truck to make a loud knocking noise and shake when driving at high speeds. The engine having a coolant leak or an engine timing problem could also cause the knocking noise.
yes it will has to do with back pressure exhaust from the engine
incorrect engine timing so that it misfires
No, an exhaust leak would have nothing to do with your engine timing.
The engine may backfire excessively. You may also smell a strong exhaust odor in the riding position. In worst cases, it can cause the engine to run lean.
You will see steam come from the tailpipe in the winter which is caused by the hot exhaust coming from the engine making contact with the cold metal in the exhaust system. This is normal and no cause for alarm. However if the white smoke does not dissipate almost instantly and seems to continue you may have a blown head gasket. If the exhaust smells sweet you almost certainly have a problem and the gasket is blown. A blown gasket will destroy the engine in time. If you are not sure have it looked at by a professional.
Blue smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt by the engine.
yes burning oil smokes if the exhaust is clogged the motor will not run so if you suspect a lot of oil in the exhaust the engine needs serviced
