Why is the coolant reservoir smoking in my 98 Pontiac Sunfire?
it's getting too cool, really
My car is leaking coolant from the top of my engine under the manifold and dripping down drivers side what could be wrong with my '99 Chevy Malibu leaking coolant?
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.
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
What could cause brown liquid to be sprayed under hood of car around coolant reservoir onto front part of frame and metal cylinder behind reservoir also car was smoking?
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…
92 eclipse engine temp rose all the way coolant was bubbling from air coming out of the hose going into the colant box and its smoking bad why?
Car smokes out of exhaust white light gray color only smokes when car is warm and car idles for a few mins if car is revved the smoking stops until idles for a min smoke dissapates rather quick?
if your car is getting hot its usually the first clue... if its smoking (coolant out of the exhuast) or is making exsesive pressure in the coolant system its from a bad head gasket letting water in the cylinders and then exiting out the exhuast or vicversa pushing air from the cylinders in the coolant system... either way if its doing that it most deffinatley the head gasket
You have to replace the hydraulic fan motor. I'm going through this same problem right now. Your Jeep will start to overheat repeatedly when that fan goes out, especially when the A/C is used. It will overheat to the point where your coolant is boiling out of the reservoir and the car is smoking. Unfortunately for you and me both it isn't going to be a cheap fix. The part to fix this problem costs…
Your 1993 Chevy Lumina started smoking from under hood no temp lights on no oil light did get a low coolant light when you turned car off and restarted What could be the problem?
When coolant leaks on a hot engine it produces quite a bit of steam, and it looks like smoke. Make sure you aren't leaking coolant somewhere and if you are, take care of the problem before the engine is destroyed. It's usually a radiator hose or heater hose, but whatever you do, take care of the problem before driving it again.
How do you know if a diesel engine is burning oil it has been smoking since I had the oil changed the smoke is white but smells like burnt fuel?
The main part of diesel fuel is kerosene, which produces thick black smoke, and gives that smell that is commonly associated with diesel. most likely if it is white smoke, it is antifreeze, if it has a blue tint to it, it is oil. the smell of burnt diesel is rather strong so it could cancel the burnt oil smell, or on the other hand it could be coolant, because burned coolant doesn't have a…
The difference between primary and secondary smoking is very simple. Primary smoking is actually smoking the cigarette yourself, whereas secondary or second hand smoking is inhaling fumes of other smokers around you, whilst you are not actually smoking the cigarette. That is why the smoking ban was introduced and more and more smokers are smoking in smoking shelters. Which, not only provides shelter for them when they are smoking outside, but it also protects non…
