Perhaps valve cover gasket is leaking oil onto plug area

Could be a bad head gasket. You would get engine oil leaking into the cylinder heads and that would show as smoke out the tail pipe.

If it only smokes at startup and the smoke is blue this is normally a sign of worn valve seals or guides. White smoke is a symptom of blown head gasket. Black smoke is a symptom of overly rich fuel/air mixture.

Oil always worked for me!!! ....You might have blown your headgasket! This means that your engine coolant is leaking into the oil in the engine and it causes smoke out your exhaust.

Shut the car off and get out. Something is broken and if its producing smoke, it could catch on fire.

First off, the color of the smoke will tell you quite a bit and also if it is safe to continue driving the car. Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel mixture. Blue smoke indicates it is burning oil. White smoke indicates there is coolant entering the combustion chamber. White smoke, stop driving the car immediately as severe engine damage will occur. You probably have a blown head gasket. Black smoke, drive as little as possible until you can find out what is wrong. The overly rich fuel mixture can do damage to the catalytic converter, O2 sensor, and possibly cause the engine to run hot. So keep an eye on the temperature gage. Blue smoke, may foul the plugs, so drive it until you get a diagnosis from a professional as to what the problem is.

No, any smoke is coming from the engine.No, any smoke is coming from the engine.


white smoke is coming from my exhaust why?

sounds like a leak in your transmission cooler lines. check the smaller hoses going to the radiator usually the bottom.

Spark plugs don't smoke. A bad alternator would cause a dead battery.

I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.

At a decent shop, approximately $530.00 for diagnosis, smoke test and replacement including new plugs. This is for a 2002 5.7L V8.

Ecu is fried or your wires somewhere are touching and will cause your ecu to fry! Happened to me, that's why I'm on here.

this kind of thing happens in my durango when i have the ac on and its humid inside the car.

Is the white smoke coming out of your tailpipe when the engine is warmed up ? If so , it sounds like coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket , warped or cracked head

There was smoke coming from the chimney.

When the ground shakes and you see smoke coming from the mountain and pumice starts to rain down, that's a clear indicator to get out of Dodge.

You will see white smoke coming out of the exhaust. And if you take out the oil deep stick you will whitish oil. Also if you remove spark plugs and one of them have water on it.

Sounds like the inside of the dash is on fire. I'd recommend a fire extinguisher.

It is not meant to smoke. It is running properly if there is no black smoke.It is not meant to smoke. It is running properly if there is no black smoke.

Reverse has nothing to do with it, unless the smoke is coming from your differential. White smoke typically indicates you are burning oil somewhere.

If you have black smoke coming out it would be because you have bad timings, i have a buddy who had that happen to his jeep and we replaced the spark plugs and air filter and fixed the timing and it solved the problem, but wen you blow black smoke its because of bad timing it happens with diesels to.
