SOURCE: my truck blows white smoke

Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust

not sure what your question is regarding but white smoke coming out of the exhaust usually means water is getting into the cylinder. If this is the case then you never know when the motor is going to go so just do whatever you need to do as quicky and cool as possible

SOURCE: white smoke from the exhaust when I start the car

Hi!

What type of smoke can you see---

white smoke-
If you see a wispy, lingering white smoke that has a bittersweet smell, this is an indication that your car's engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers. This may be due to a leaky head gasket, or in a worst case scenario, a cracked cylinder head.

Make sure to take your car to the shop right away to get it fixed.
Thick white smoke---
If your vehicle is belching white smoke upon start-up, it is a sign that transmission fluid is entering the combustion chambers, possibly though a vacuum tube that connects the engine to the transmission.
This type of smoke can be confused with the normal puff of steam during start-up. If you are not sure, have your car inspected at the shop.

Blue/White Smoke--
A blue/white smoke is an indication that oil is being sucked into the combustion chambers through the valve guides. A quick fix for this problem is by replacing the valve seals. Valve seals are small, umbrella shaped pieces of rubber.

Do rate the solution.

Thanks
Rylee.

Hi my vaxhall insignia battery ran down i started it with jump leads but the odometer went back to zero wanting to sell the car can you please help thanks


Check all your fuses first of all if they are all okay, then you need the computer to be reset when you battery went flat & you jump started the vehicle it would to the vehicle think you had changed the battery just needs to go to Vauxhall garage they should be able to reset then all should be working not a long or expensive job. Hope this helps Best wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

I have fitted new doors to my Combo van but when I have shut them they will not open on the key or by the handle!! Doh! Can anyone help?


Get the AA or RAC to get you in. You need the key to the new doors, or swap the locks from the doors you had.

There are a number of YouTube videos showing ho to break into your own vehicle.

Removing a speed limiter from a vauxhall combo cdti van


The speed-limiter is likely to be enabled via the ECU. Removing the limiter is a five-minute job if you have access to the GM Tech 2 electronic management/diagnostic tool.

If the van is yours then there's no legal requirement for the limiter. You could just book it in at a Vauxhall dealer for the limiter to be removed. They may charge you for an hour's labour though. Still worth doing in my opinion.
