    Leaking valve seals or piston rings Worn, damaged, or defective valve stem seals or piston rings can leak oil into the combustion chamber, which will then mix with the fuel and create a white or gray exhaust smoke when burnt. Solo Truck Driving. The leak is typically caused by a damaged or faulty diaphragm valve of the vacuum modulators at the side of the transmission case, in which transmission fluid can seep through the intake system via the vacuum hose line. September 14, If yes, the problem may be from the coolant leaking out from the cylinder head gasket. You can check this by removing the cross over pipe and ensure no air is flowing at idle.

    White smoke often occurs when there is either too much fuel being injected into the combustion chamber, or not enough heat to burn the fuel. Un-.The diesel engines' efficiency has improved significantly over the years, so any thick smoke coming out from the exhaust pipe should be a cause for concern.

    Blow-by is a condition where diesel fuel, air and vapor are pushed past the rings into the crankcase of the engine.

    One less commonbut possible cause is fuel getting into your oil and thinning the oil out to the point that it is able to pass the rings.

    However, if the smoke persists even when the engine is already hot or if it's significantly thicker, it may be due to a more serious issue.

    In very cold temperatures, the heated exhaust can freeze into minute fuel droplets when exiting the exhaust and produce a more prolonged emission of white smoke for a very short period of driving time.

    Consistent smoke coming from the exhaust most likely indicates a deeper internal problem with the engine.
