Symptom: White smoke or water vapor from the exhaust. You notice white smoke coming from the exhaust when you start your car. If it is cold out, this may be normal. If the smoke does not disappear after the car is warmed, you have a problem. Possible causes:

  1. Transmission fluid may be entering the intake manifold through vacuum modulator.
    The Fix: Replace vacuum modulator
  2. Cylinder head gasket(s) may be bad.
    The Fix: Replace cylinder head gasket(s).
  3. Cylinder head(s) may be warped or cracked.
    The Fix: Resurface or replace cylinder heads. (Resurfacing is not a DIY job)
  4. The engine block may be cracked.
    The Fix: Replace engine block.

1.9 dci no power and bluey grey smoke is coming from the exhaust


There are indeed traces of oil coming out of the exhaust. Blue smoke is burning oil. Grey or white smoke is usually coolant/water going through the engine. This can be caused by leaking head gaskets, valve guides depending on the engine, excessive blow-by, etc. Large amounts of oil are not good; and water is even worse. I would look at getting the head gasket replaced. The loss of power is because neither oil or water likes to burn, and once your engine clears it out, it probably runs ok for the rest of the day. Then I'm guessing the next morning, it comes back. This is an urgent fix, because prolonged leakage can damage the engine block, head, or both.

Black smoke coming from exhaust but car is running, have changed filters but no change.the car is renault megan dti 02


Black smoke usually means a rich mixture. For some reason the car is getting too much fuel. If the check engine light is on then take it to a shop with a code reader. They can tell you what sensor needs replacing. These newer cars are usually totally computer controled so if a sensor goes bad they will adjust the mixture incorrectly.
