For the most part, we tend to ignore other cars especially when the traffic is heavy.
But sometimes another car will catch our attention – like when they are spewing exhaust fumes and become engulfed in smoke.
It’s easy to conclude from the amount of smoke that something is wrong. But pay attention, because the color of the smoke can direct you to the cause. Generally speaking, smoke will be white, blue, gray, or black, according to speedwaymedia.com.
White smoke is the most common and may simply be a natural happening of water vapor that is heating up on a cold day.
“On the other hand, if you observe continual thick white or grey smoke, it is not normal and could be a serious problem. When you see this sort of smoke, it means that the coolant is being heated up and coming out of the exhaust. This, especially in summer, would cause your engine to overheat. This smoke could also be a result of a cracked cylinder block, which can be extremely dangerous and needs immediate attention,” speedwaymedia.com says.
Blue smoke, on the other hand, could indicate the car’s valve system or piston rings have been worn out or perhaps an oil leak.
Gray smoke can be hard to read, speedwaymedia.com says. It may indicate too much oil being burned or more serious problems with your positive crankcase ventilation.
Black smoke can indicate that too much fuel is being used up, and the solution to this could be as simple as changing the car’s air filter or taking it to a workshop to clean the fuel pressure regulator or to check if there is a clog in the fuel injectors,” speedwaymedia.com says.
Smokes can indicate a lot about the car.
Speedwaymedia.com concludes, “Similar to the human body, some issues may be more serious than they seem, and it is best if we leave them to trained professionals instead of trying to take matters into our own hands. However, if we take proper care of our cars and have regular check-ups, problems should not arise, and one car can last for years, if not centuries.”
