Best Answer

Black smoke= rich condition(too much fuel and not enough air). Blue smoke = burning oil(engine components excessivly worn). White smoke= possible blown head gasket. Check oil to see if coolant is mixing in. Also check coolant level to see if it is loosing it. Have cylinder compression test done to verify head gasket problem. Other possibilities are a cracked cylinder head or engine block.
