Why does a 1994 Honda Accord EX still smoke after changing out the radiator?
cooling fan probably installed incorrectly blade knicking radiator for clicking sound or wire hanging in fan arc smoke should clear in few days as coolant probably splashed on exhaust shroud or it could be you fried your head gasket and the antifreeze is leaking into the motor which causes it to smoke
Why is there smoke coming from under the hood and when you turn the car off it sounds like a fan is still running on my 1997 honda accord?
White smoke indicates coolant entering the combustion chamber. STOP driving this car immediately and have this repaired or you will destroy the engine. Blue smoke indicates the engine is burning oil. Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel/air mixture. Have this repaired or you will destroy the catalytic converter and the O2 sensor.
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.
Smoke coming from engine compartment after driving for a while on a 1997 Honda accord smells like burnt oil?
Why would a Honda Prelude smoke only when you floor it with white smoke and a little black if there is no water in the oil?
Any special instructions on changing fuel injectors on a 1982 280z you had two leaking so you changed mine out now the car is idling rough with a lot of white smoke from the exhaust?
Could an oil additive cause your 1988 Honda Accord with 123000 miles to start blowing a lot of white exhaust smoke?
It is doubtful that an oil additive would cause this, although it is possible. White smoke from the tailpipe is usually an indication of coolant entering the combustion chamber. A blown head gasket is the likely culprit. A cracked head will also cause this. If you are losing coolant, that is another sign of one of these problems. Have this checked out ASAP, as severe engine damage will occur if this is not corrected. Answer…
It depends. White smoke indicates coolant entering the combustion chamber. Normally caused by blown head gasket or cracked head or both. This MUST be repaired or your engine will be destroyed. STOP driving this vehicle until you get this repaired. In the winter a small amount of white smoke is normal at startup and is nothing more than water vapor. White smoke that smells sweet is coolant burning. Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel/air…
When diagnosing a blown headgasket on a 1993 Honda Accord Ex indicated by white smoke at startup what other problems should be considered first?
None. If you are sure that it is burning coolant and not just condensation from the exhaust (cold weather) then it is either a blow gasket, cracked head or cracked block. Remove the radiator cap when the engine is cold, run the car to warm it up and look in the rad for bubbles. If you see bubbles, then the air from the cylinder is pressurising into the coolant system and you can be 99%…
Overheating can be caused by many things. First off, answer this question. Are you loosing coolant with no apparent leak and your exhaust is blowing white smoke? If your answer is yes, then you have a blown head gasket and must stop driving this vehicle until this is repaired. Otherwise you may have a stuck thermostat. defective water pump, or clogged radiator. I suggest you service your cooling system. Drain, and flush the cooling system…
What could cause smoke white to grey in color from underneath the hood just after turning off a 1992 Honda Accord with 234K miles?
Why is 1987 Honda Accord overheating with new radiator new hoses no leaks and full of water but no coolant.?
Check to see if coolant is mixing with engine oil. Run engine to normal operating temperature and remove oil dipstick, let a drop of fluid fall onto a hot part of engine, oil will smoke and coolant will sizzle. If coolant is into engine oil could be a sign of a bad head gasket If fluid level is correct, but still overheating, could be: Thermostat is not opening Water pump not circulating coolant Cooling fan…
There are three things that can cause this, and what "this" is, is crankcase overpressure. The most common, and cheapest, is a clogged PCV valve. Change that, and in most cases the problem is solved. The other two are bad valve guides and broken piston rings - neither of which you want because you fix them by tearing the engine down.
