What is the cause of white smoke to come from an engine after you change the radiator hose?
White smoke from the exhaust is normally an indication of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Could be a blown head gasket or cracked head.
Why is my 97' firebird trans am overheating and how can i determine the cause of the overheating i have smoke coming out the tailpipe and the hood?
The smoke may be because you are overheating the engine. There are several causes for this. Check your fluid level in your radiator. Make sure it is full. Check your thermostat. Change it if it is weak. Check your radiator cap. This needs to be the correct one for the engine. Check all moving parts for your water system. Like the water pump, hoses and fittings.
It is very doubtful that it is smoke. It is most likely steam. Either there is a pinhole leak in the radiator allowing hot coolant to escape that then vaporizes into steam when it hits the atmosphere... or there is something spilled on the radiator that steams when the radiator gets hot. Have the radiator pressure tested for leaks.
Your rad hose blew a hole replaced it but now im still getting smoke from the engine on the right sidewhat could be the cause of this?
Could be a bad radiator allowing engine coolant to circulate in transmission Change fluid and filter Run engine to normal operating temperature - pull transmission dipstick and allow a drop of fluid to drop on a hot engine part - oil will smoke and coolant will sizzle If coolant present - replace radiator also Hopefully not too late
What does it mean when the left side of your radiator was smoking and it damaged the radiator cap when you took it off there was a lot of coolant in the radiator?
Your water pump might be broken or your thermostat might need to be replaced. You obviously don't have a leak so somehow the fluid isn't moving through the engine. If the thermostat is broken it will not let fluid into the engine and then the engine will overheat and the radiator will release smoke.
Sorry, to tell you but white smoke from the exhaust is a sign of a blown head gasket or cracked head or both. Other symptoms are loss of coolant with no apparent leak, overfull oil level, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, air bubbles escaping from the radiator with engine running radiator cap off. Caution: Only remove the cap on a cold engine. Stop driving this vehicle immediately or…
That is probably antifreeze steam. Your heater core is a small radiator used to heat your car. The engine heats the antifreeze and circulates it through the heater core. Your blower blows heat through the core (radiator) into the car, and warms you. If the core gets a small leak, it will put out steam.
Just having a hole in the muffler won't cause smoke to form. Any smoke coming from an engine is caused by either environment changes (white smoke while engine is warming up), or an engine burning oil (blue smoke). Sometimes even a bad catalytic converter can cause smoke. The hole in the muffler simply gives the smoke a way out. Trying looking for external oil leaks or checking he oil level occasionally to see if it…
There is smoke coming from the front and under the hood and wter leaking from under car what is the diagnostic?
the reason why smoke is coming from your engine is because it is on fire And the water is from the ac ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Assuming that the engine is running and warmed up , it sounds like you have a leak in a heater hose or radiator hose , or somewhere else there is a leak in the engine coolant system
If it is a push mower there are only a couple things that will cause the mower to smoke. 1) The rings are worn and need replaced. This lets oil seep past the rings and burns the oil in the cylinder. This will cause a white smoke. (this is probably the most common cause for engines smoking) 2) The carburetor is putting too much gas in the engine. This will cause the engine to run…
