Exhaust smoke remedies:
Please note: White smoke, Black smoke, Oily exhaust pipe may have a common origin, a common remedy. Lets detail each - and our proven, field-tested remedy.
#1. One reason: White smoke most of the time.
Real serious. An acidic condition from deteriorated radiator coolant, ate thru a motor gasket allowing coolant [50%water] into combustion areas, where it should not be.
Coolant ends up in the combustion area, vaporizes, and is spewed-out the exhaust as a white fog. About $1500 up, for new gasket replacement is the remedy.
The other option is to try a radiator acid-neutralizing flush/stop leak, and a worn motor treatment, from Mega Power. This.... "try this first" less expensive remedy works 9 out of ten times. You never know who the lucky five are, though, untill you try this treatment - which you probraly need anyhow...
#2 Not that serious. White/bluis smoke - at start up only.
This indicates oil is leaking pass the valves and mixing with moisture in the exhaust. Overnight, the car cools, air shrinks, this produces moisture - nearly a cup or so in the motor and exhaust system - and it comes out as a smoke, then tapers off till the next morning...
The next morning exhaust quickly heats up pass a couple hundred degrees and vaporizes that water. It comes out the exhaust pipe dripping wet and in a white fog for a couple minutes - then stops, as the system dries out. Short trips less than one hour increases the moisture collection at start up.
Try the Mega Power Worn motor Treatment to seal that loss of oil and put off expensive valve repairs. Your will buy a new muffler and a new motor sooner because a more acidic condition is present longer in the exhaust and motor - due to that type of driving. Of course, more goo in the motor is present and makes for more fuel waste. This extra fuel burns off as moisture as you drive and cannot be seen. Mega Power ends this problem chemically.
The problem caused by acids
Acid is a by-product of sulfur mixed with moisture. Sulfur is present in all oils and gas and diesel fuel. Most additives in oil and fuel is to control sulfur - and in that way, protect your engine and transmission.
#3. Special servicing is called for to end these two problems.
Dirty conditions and worn or a bad part needing attention. Here's the story. The cars catalytic converter - A special muffler all cars have, changes unburnt oil and gas into water - instead of letting it exhaust out to kill vegetation, weaken respiratory systems of kids and older folks, keep our skys blue - not yellow, and help keep the rivers cleaner.
The double problem.
When your motor needs a tune up and a special type of cleaning, it is because of residue binding and wear and tear. The more of those conditions developing, the more there is to stop the needed spark from firing every time.
Mis-fire; [zero mis-fire is ideal. When at 2% to 10% mis-fire, the car idles rough, develops a tap, waste fuel, sticks rings and valves, burns more gas and oil, feels like its worn out- when its not].
When mis-fire occurs, more unburnt fuel and oil is exhausted - and gives the catalytic converted overtime working conditions to convert that unburnt gas/oil into water.
When excessive amounts of
Unburnt gas and oil cannot be processed by the catalytic converter - and there is constant white, blue, black smoke present. It means your car needs lots of help. "Your exhaust pipe is also oily?"
The mechanics procedure.
A mechanic will "pull your cars computer problem-storing codes." This catches most electrical based problem areas, and zero's end on what to fix. He may suggest some cleaning, or mechanical repair solution.
all those problems can be greatly reduced to end sticky internal goo, excessive friction drag, combustion, and dirty emission conditions that cause mis-fire. Learn more about the
Worn Motor Treatment, from Mega Power,
mentioned above, as the remedy for these problems, too.
The same additive treatment remedy
Is similar for ending or reducing White smoke, Black smoke, an Oily exhaust pipes and blue smoke.
I like the above answer. there are additive products many of us use as a fix, when possible. They often end or control the above problems. My thinking suggest their usage first, if possible - before attemping a repair. That is what many of us do, and gain more years of repair-avoiding service, successfully.
Being a mechanic, you see exhaust pipes spew different colors of fumes.
The color is one of several exhaust smoke clues as to the nature of, possible origin, and remedy of the problem.
Lets cover each smoke color and my remedy. But, first, this point…
My exhaust smoke solution to a problem mostly goes like this. Being frugal [cheap], I want the most bang for my money. Frugal = ecological; sound, conservative.
I don't mind a little extra bother
To save a buck or two, or even a thousand. Others, want to cut thru the crap, can't waste time saving a buck or two.
Such customers are willing to spend what ever it takes to end the car problem - so they can get on with life. "Fix it so its right" - is their cry! "Expense is not the point. Call me when its ready. I don't even want to know what you did, but, it better be right!" That is the another remedy.
For the latter, you overhaul, put in a new motor, or new transmission, they pay you and go, and you take care of the next customers car problem - the way they want it done. Those are one successful way to end or control smoke problems. There are others...
