Answers :

If it smells like burning then its oil....if its scentless its water. Depends whether it disappears when engine is warmed up and what the outside temperature is.
In the morning,it is quite common for some white smoke to appear due to the difference in temperature of the outside and the heat of the engine,but should stop after warming up.If there is excessive smoke,there could be more wrong,possibly a blown head gasket.Try having a pressure check done on the cooling system as well as a compression test done on the cylinders.

2000 TDI - Lots of white smoke at cold start. Engine misses badly at midrange and at cruising conditions. Good power when peddle is mashed and seems to run smooth then. White smoke mostly goes away at idle after the car reaches 190F. Replaced: turbo, injector pump, injectors, glow plugs, rings, egr, MAF sensor, cleaned intake and EGR cooler, timed properly, head was pressure tested. The white smoke is almost certainly unburnt diesel as it smells like it and burns the eyes - and it's ALOT of smok


Sounds like your injection pump timing is off, an injector is leaking or a bad seal on your IP.\015\012VW dealers have a horrible reputation when it comes to TDI's. Check out the posts over at ... Volkswagen Jetta

If you are sure that the engine oil is coming into the combustion chamber, then you have to overhaul the engine. After the overhaul is done, have it calibrated and and clean the exhaust pipe to get rid of the black smoke. And! remember, for diesel en ... 2002 Isuzu Trooper

Hello Experts, I HAD TO PICK A CAR MODEL...THE ONE I PICKED IS NOT CORRECT, Please read on. My var is a 2006 Kia Pregio van with a 2.7L normally aspirated diesel isuzu engine. It has 60,000Km and has run well burning between 9.5 to 10.5 Litters per 100Km. I think i picked up a load of bad diesel, it would start running rough around 2800rpm and blowing blue smoke, i managed to drive it keeping the rpm below 2800. I changed the fuel & air filters & filled up with BP diesel & added injector cl


Diesels are somewhat simple but yet still complicated. If the cause was bad gas I would suspect once the bad gas has exited the system fully it will return to normal. But on the other hand if it was heavy water content in the gas then we get to the ... Kia Amanti

I have a 1998 chevy 2500 4x4 6.5 diesel pu.truck starts and seems to run normal ,maybe a little loud, i heard chevy diesels this year are louder than fords etc. blows a little white smoke at startup some times at idle not alot though ive seen gas engines w/bad head gaskets blow white smoke but alot heavier.problem is oil dipstick shows about 4 or 5 qts overful and coolant low . i drained all oil and coolant from engine and rad.new oil and filter in engine new antifreeze in rad . i ran the engine

2006 Kia Sorento 4X4, Diesel. Starts right up but runs "rough" (more vibration than normal and valves rattle at low revs) and produces great deal of white smoke until engine heats up (after about 2-3 minutes of operation). Once engine is heated up it stops producing white smoke but exhaust still smells very strongly, as if diesel is not combusting properly? Engine valves continue to rattle at low revs. Any ideas?


I would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--check egr too, Lee ... 2007 Kia Sorento LX 4x4

Hi, My Toyota Hilux 3000d (5L) diesel engine gave of puffs of white smoke while driving started to jerk. I pulled over and switched the engine off.

Hello I have a 2001 ponitac aztec and I am being to have trouble with it. When I start it up it has white smoke and shakes really bad but once I get to driving it it drive perfect. I took it to a mechanic he told me I needed a new engine because when he took the cap of the engine there was white stuff on it. Please help really don't want to have to buy a new engine.


IF the smoke is truly white, it is likely a blown head gasket. If its consuming oil and/or purple ish smoke, its got bad rings. Either way, its a significant operation if you're not mechanically inclined. ... Pontiac Aztek

My wife has a Hyundai Getz diesel (1.5 CRTD GSI) which starts fine from completely cold. It also starts fine after it's warmed up completely. The problem is when you try to start the engine when it has not warmed up enough. Revs won't go higher than about 1500 and you press the accelarator thick black smoke comes out of the exhaust. If you try to drive off while the car is in this state it won't move much faster than about 5 mph while it's giving out black sooty smoke out of the exhaust
