You are burning coolant. What vehicle? did you do a compression test?
engine smoking indicates overheatingdue to low coolant and/or oil if it shutdown because of overheating you may have already done serious damage
Low coolant if it is ? smoking you may have cooked your motor, or the thermatic fans are shorting out get it seen to by a mechanic ASAP
i had a fuel leak
is the smoke black? if a turbo smokes, you need to replace the turbo. smoking turbos means a bearing or seal has failed ,allowing engine oil into turbo. turb runs very hot ,which is where the smoking comes from. if the smoke is white it means you have a coolant problem .usually a head gasket which is allowing coolant into exhaust. turbos run on recycled exhaust
Smoking all the time is probably the piston rings. Smoking when you first start it is probably the valve seals. Smoke may be coolant and not oil which would mean a head gasket, cracked head or block. What color smoke makes a difference. Black smoke, to much fuel (flooding). Blue smoke, engine oil. White smoke, engine coolant.
take his cigarettes off him
Check your dipstick to see if the oil has a milky appearance. If so there is coolant in your oil and you probably have a blown head gasket. If the oil looks normal and the fluid you described as brown looks the same as the color of your motor oil ( a bit dirty ) you have either blown a head gasket or craked the head. If your vehicle has an oil cooler you may have a leak in the lines to it or a leak in the cooler itself. There is also a type of refridgerant ( from your ac system ) that will turn brown when exposed to air.
may have imbalance in coolant mixture, may have bad water pump, may have bad thermostat. check each.
