Hey Lynn==It is probably just tired and in need of an overhaul. It will probably chug along for some time but an overhaul is in order. GoodluckJoe
sounds like you have leaky valve seals. They are letting oil into the cylinder when the car sits still. There are tools that allow you to replace the valve seals without taking off the heads. If you have or can afford the tools, this is the way to go.
bad valve stem seals or oil return holes in the heads are blocked with sludge.
It is buring oil this is a wrong answer whe engine burn oil to the exhaust smoke is a heavy white smoke no black
Car maintenance is very important for a smooth ride. When there is white smoke coming out of the exhaust, it is usually an indication of water in the engine.
What's wrong is the lack of oil destroyed the engine.
try and check if you have oil in your exhaust that should be your problem
i have 05 e55amg and just notice white smoke from the exhaust when i start the car and i will drop it off to the dealer to check what the hell is wrong and i will update as soon as i find out.
white smoke is usually a sign of something wrong coming thru your exhaust pipe.Blown head gasket, transmission fluid etc.
Usually a blown head gasket, also there is some white smoke most of the time
U have a blown head gasket,cracked cylinder head or cracked block.. The white smoke is from water getting into the Exhaust system.
If your engine is blowing blue smoke your engine is burning oil.If the smoke is present on acceleration, the piston rings are bad.If smoke is present on deceleration, then the valve guide seals are bad.
It is possible there is a baad oil leak on the exhaust. Have it checked out. Good luckJoe
Check the O2 sensor located on the exhaust pipe on the passenger side. Could be giving the computer wrong information.
Most likely a valve cover gasket is leaking or exhaust manifolds bolts are loose. one burning oil on hot surface or just smoke from exhaust.
Sounds like you need a ring job, white/grey smoke from the exhaust usually means oil is burning in your engine. Your engine may need a tune up or a compression check, bring it in to your mechanic.
Dude it's normal it happens to almost everybody...it's just water that got into the cylinders...let the car run the smoke will disappear
sounds like a blown gasket, allowing coolant to enter the cylinders.
If what you are decribing is smoke coming from underhood that smells like burnt oil, it may be your valve cover gasket(s) leaking on the hot exhaust manifold. This smell is strong enough to come into the passenger compartment while you drive. It should be repaired. I hope this helps you. Mark
I got told that it interferes with your kidneys, not sure if its right or wrong but that's what i got told
White smoke is a good indication you have a blown head gasket. And/or a cracked head. Did you noticed, when it happened that the engine started running rough? Best i can do with little info.
Maybe there is something wrong with your car, you should get it checked out.
The transmission has a fluid leak. Either at the torque-converter seal or the bell-housing bolts, ( I have had this one). The smoke is the fluid dropping on the exhaust pipe and the low speed with high revs is the torque-converter slipping from lack of fluid.
I'll describe you what is happening when I'm trying to start it after rain. Starter turns..but engine won't come on. I think water is coming somehow to the system - because when I'm pushing a gas pedal while starting the engine sometimes knocks couple of times and a lot of white smoke is coming from the exhaust..then it suddenly stops. The longer after the rain the better it gets - engine knocks for a longer time....white smoke coming out of the exhaust...with me pushing a gas to max..until it starts. Any idea what could be wrong?
Because there is something wrong with it.
is there white smoke coming out the exhaust? if so you need to replace the head gasket. if no white smoke then you might not be getting enough fuel then you might want to change the fuel filter
if your tailpipe is pouring smoke then you have internal engine problems and need to take it to a mechanic or you need to change your oil
