What Color Is Your Diesel Exhaust?
Well-running diesel vehicles – especially newer diesel cars and trucks – do not produce visible smoke from their exhaust. If you see smoke coming out of your diesel exhaust, something is not right.
Black Diesel Smoke indicates incomplete combustion. Black diesel exhaust can be caused by a dirty air cleaner, incorrect pump timing, or dirty or worn fuel injectors.
Blue Diesel Smoke suggests burning oil, which means oil is finding its way *into* your cylinders. (It doesn’t belong there.) Blue diesel smoke generally indicates a worn engine part or seal, or a worn or failing turbocharger.
White Diesel Smoke might mean coolant is leaking into your combustion chamber, or a leaking head gasket.
