What could cause an extremely fast oil leak and white smoke?
Could be several things. Typically, oil burning is blue smoke, and water/antifreeze is white smoke. With a combination of fast oil leak *and* white smoke, my guess would be to check the Cylinder Head Gasket or a cracked Cylinder Head.
Heavy white smoke is usually caused when the engine burns transmission fluid, such as when the modulator valve is defective, causing transmission fluid to be sucked into the intake system. A stuck closed thermostat could cause the engine to overheat. If the engine overheated badly and repeatedly, a cylinder head could crack and allow coolant to enter the combustion camber. This condition would cause white smoke to blow out the exhaust.
White smoke usually indicates steam. I don't think a bad intake manifold gasket would cause it, but a bad or blown head gasket certainly would. More than likely it is a bad head gasket or a cracked head. White smoke means you are getting anifreeze in your cumbustion chamber (cylinder) and when it fires it is burning the moisture creating white smoke.
Not by itself. On newer cars, the oxygen sensor can tell the computer to richen up or lean out the air fuel mixture. It could cause a little, almost unnoticeable amount of extra smoke if it was calling for an extremely rich mixture. If you have a gasoline engine and there is a lot white smoke coming from the tail pipe then your engine is either running excessively rich or has a coolant leak and…
What causes white smoke when you accelerate a little hard on a 1993 Toyota Corona AT when you bought it in November of 2006 and there is no white smoke while idling?
Hello, This could be cause by a couple of things, it could be the piston rings are getting tired (Whats is the mileage on the vehicle?) or the valve seals are getting also old letting oil pass trough it and burning when getting in the combustion chamber. White smoke is caused by oil entering the combustion chamber (Burning oil creates white smoke when burnt.)
Can a bad oxygen sensor cause overheating and white white smoke from the exhaust on a 1992 Honda civic?
Bad spark plugs and leads can commonly make the engine feel like its 'hesitating' or skipping a beat, often worsening in the higher rev range. However it is not the cause of white smoke. White smoke is typically associated with coolant getting into the combustion chamber. The most common cause of this is a cracked head gasket, which you will need to replace in order to rectify the white smoke.
What could be causing a 1995 Chevy Camaro Z28 to puff black smoke from the exhaust when you accelerate?
White or bluish/white smoke coming from the tailpipe is oil. Black smoke is unburnt gas. So if you notice a drop in the level of oil when you check it with the dipstick and have that: the white or bluish smoke, you are burning oil. Could be piston rings, especially on a high mileage engine, valve guide seals, (that will cause a lot of smoke upon start up, the oil has leaked past the valve…
What can cause White smoke coming out of exhaust on a freelander the head gasket and thermostat and inlet manifold gasket have all been replaced with the new type from landrover?
Will engine smoke if modulator valve is broke engine only smokes at idle. no lost power or compression.white smoke meaning oil.?
white smoke does not always mean oil. Where is the smoke coming from. Sometimes small pin holes in the water system can cause a white smoke or steam which appears to be smoke. If the engine is at idle that would be the only time you could see that type of hole until it gets bigger. Check for any loss of water/antifreeze in the vehicle.
Why is your john deere 2440 blowing white smoke will backfire sometimes and will emit a puff of smoke then run ok.?
Typically, white smoke after sitting over night is just steam from condensation or moisture in the air. However, thick white smoke while at operating temp is an indication that you are burning anti-freeze. You may have a blown head gasket if this is the case. Over filling oil can cause a white/blue smoke as well.
