How long will oil continue to smoke on an engine block after a large spill?
Wash it down with a degreaser, might speed up the process
Here's what you do.
Start it up and let it run for a while, then shut it off and let the engine cool down completely.
The oil will gel and become sludge, and at that point will cease to smoke as much. You might smell it for a couple of days, but it shouldn't smoke as much, if at all.
Hey Nena==I presume someone told you that the block is cracked. This happens if the engine gets extremely hot. You just have to take the heads off and look for the cracks or have the block magnafluxed at a machine shop. It also should smoke white smoke while it is running if it is cracked. GoodluckJoe
White smoke from a tailpipe is caused then coolant and oil are mixed together. Typically, this is caused by either a cracked block, cracked cylinder head, blown headgasket. Have engine diagnosed at a shop of your choice. It is not a cheap fix but driving like this for long periods of time will cause engine to overheat and cause more problems than you would like.
If it is white smoke, it could be leaking coolant into combustion chamber by a leaking head gasket, cracked block, or warped or cracked cylinder head. If it is black smoke, the engine is running to rich. (too much fuel going into engine). If it is blue smoke, engine is burning oil,(valve seals or rings).
Smoking all the time is probably the piston rings. Smoking when you first start it is probably the valve seals. Smoke may be coolant and not oil which would mean a head gasket, cracked head or block. What color smoke makes a difference. Black smoke, to much fuel (flooding). Blue smoke, engine oil. White smoke, engine coolant.
Blue smoke = Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. Black smoke = Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." White Smoke = White smoke is caused by coolant entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The…
White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. This is normally caused by a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Stop driving the car immediately as severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine. I have no idea what you mean by the term "slug".
Why is gas in the oil and tailpipe of a 1994 Thunderbird with excessive blue smoke coming from the tailpipe?
Does the car vibrating at stop lights have anything to do with the white smoke coming out of tailpipe?
White smoke coming from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. This will cause the engine to miss and vibrate. More than likely your have a blown head gasket. You must STOP driving this car until this is repaired. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine.
White smoke out the exhaust is definitely a sign of a cracked cylinder head or a blown head gasket, possibly even a cracked engine block. Not something to be driving around with, as more damage can occur from overheating the engine. Also the engine could stop running and strand you someplace you may not want to be stranded in.
Only on cold startup (diesel engine) it can be normal to get little black smoke, as long as it doesn't continue. If it continues after warm up that could indicate engine wear. I'd recommend a mechanical inspection. The newer common rail diesels though are generally cleaner burning than older engines.
It's burning oil. Usually worn rings, oil sludge or carbon in the ring grooves or worn valve guides. The above answer is correct. However, excessive white smoke would indicate large amounts of water vapor in the exhaust possibly caused by a blown head gasket or cracked block. Check your oil to see if there is water in it. If there is, it will look milky on the dipstick. Another possibility My car had this same…
The coolant is mixing with the engine oil even after the engine head gasket is changed what might be the problem?
White smoke from the exhaust is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Usually a blown head gasket or cracked head. STOP driving the car immediately. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine. Sounds like steam......you may be getting coolant into the combustion chamber.
White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber, especially if you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak. Most likely cause is a blown head gasket or cracked head. STOP, driving the car immediately. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine. You must have this repaired ASAP.
the cylinder head gasket needs to be checked you have a blown head gasket or a crack in your engine block. this is causing water to leak into your cylinders and evaorate in the heat blowing lots of steam out of your exhaust. blown gasket = new gasket cracked block = new engine and stop over revving your engine. shift BEFORE redline and if you have, DO NOT bounce the rev limiter. if you engine…
I have a 2001 1.8 Turbo Passat. I believe the white smoke is due to the engine sludge problem that had a recall on it (I missed the mileage cut off for a new engine). Sludge builds up on the Catalytic Converter. After a certain amount of build up and the temperature of the Cat is at normal temperature, white smoke will come out of tail pipe when accelerating. When it starts, the engine will…
Black smoke= rich condition(too much fuel and not enough air). Blue smoke = burning oil(engine components excessivly worn). White smoke= possible blown head gasket. Check oil to see if coolant is mixing in. Also check coolant level to see if it is loosing it. Have cylinder compression test done to verify head gasket problem. Other possibilities are a cracked cylinder head or engine block.
