What Does Smoke Mean?

When it comes to the engine, one of the easiest ways to know something is wrong is when you start to see colored smoke release from the exhaust. Regardless of the color, this is an easy way to know your engine will need repairs soon. But there's a lot you can determine by examining the color of the smoke, and the Vallise Automotive team is here to make sense of it. Here's what each color means and what you need to do:

  • Black -- this is the most common of the three, and the least to be worried about. Common reasons include a rich-running engine, a dirty air filter, or a clogged fuel injector. If the issue doesn't clear up after a few minutes, make sure to have it checked right away.
  • White -- white smoke occurs when the coolant has leaked and is being burned in the combustion chamber. The leak can originate from a variety of places, so it's best to act quickly when you see this problem.
  • Blue -- arguably the most worrisome of the three, blue smoke occurs when oil is leaking into the combustion chamber and is being burned. Common causes include a worn piston ring or a damaged valve stem seal. Regardless of what the issue is, you must bring your car in for service immediately or risk significant damage to your engine.
