Why Is My Car Smoking but Not Overheating?

 
  
  
 


When you’re in the middle of driving through D’lberville, Gulfport, or Hattiesburg, Mississippi, your car may make an unusual noise or clunk when riding over a bump. Sometimes, your car’s quirks may cause you to wonder what is going on, especially if you see smoke seeping from it.

Could your vehicle be overheating, or could the answer be much simpler? Keep reading to find out. Then, contact the team at Pat Peck Kia if you have any more questions.


Exhaust Pipe

Where Is the Smoke Coming From?

The first two things you should determine is where the smoke originated and what color it is. Once you figure this out, you may be able to diagnose the problem and then schedule an appointment at our service center.

Smoke may come from the following places:

  • Exhaust pipes
  • Engine
  • Filler cap
  • Electrical wires

Colors may vary, depending on the repair or adjustment your car needs. Let’s go over each location on your car and discuss the smoke coming from it and what it means.


Exhaust Pipe Smoke Color Chart

If your exhaust pipe emits black smoke that smells like fuel, your car may be getting too much fuel or there’s not enough air flowing through the engine. If your vehicle spews white or gray smoke, it may mean there’s water entering the cylinder or a coolant leak may be occurring. When you see blue smoke, oil may be leaking into an intake valve and burning in the cylinders.

Your car may not operate as efficiently if any smoke emerges from your car, so it’s best to bring it to our service center for repairs.


Check Oil Level

Engine Smoke

Smoke that comes from the engine—which smells like asphalt or tar—may be from burning oil that dripped onto the hot engine. It may be caused by deteriorated gaskets or an issue with the oil system itself.

If it is the oil system, you will notice a drop in the oil level of your car. Contact our service center to handle replacing a gasket or repairing your oil system.


Filler Cap Smoke

Older cars may release smoke due to residue found on the filler cap or from worn piston cylinder valves. If the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valves or tubes become clogged, smoke will come from them too. Seals tamping down the spaces where oil may leak may need replacing as well. To stop the smoke, our technicians can replace the worn parts of your vehicle.


Low Oil Light

Electrical Smoke

Smoke coming from the electrical system rarely occurs. Why, you may ask? Because electrical wires are generally not exposed—they are insulated and coated for your protection. If you do see white smoke from this area, it’s probably due to a hot wire.

An even rarer occasion for smoke under the hood is if the alternator goes bad, but the check engine light will probably light up before that occurs.
