Exhaust Emissions and MOT testing

Too much white exhaust smoke?<
White smoke is condensation caused by hot liquid vapors coming into contact with cold air as it exits the exhaust.white_exhaust_smoke
It’s perfectly normal for a vehicle to exhale some white smoke from a cold start, especially in cooler weather. The longer the vehicle has sat unused the more change there is that some water vapor has accumulated in the system but this is of no concern and will quickly clear as the engine starts to warm up.

If however the vehicle is always exhausting white smoke, even when the engine is warmed up, this will be caused by coolant entering the combustion chambers i.e. a leaking head gasket.  If there are signs that the head gasket switch the engine off, do not drive the car as further use will cause more damage and have a head gasket leak test completed immediately.

Too much black exhaust smoke?

If a vehicle is expelling to much black smoke it’s a sure indication that either there’s too much fuel or there is not enough air in the fuel/air mixture.
For fuel-injection vehicles the sensors and injectors should be checked to ensure they are operating correctly as when not this could  too much fuel to be delivered  and lead to a rich air/fuel mixture and black smoke.

Air filters and all other air intake components should also be checked, if clogged they will be a restriction on the air intake again leading to air in the fuel/air mixture.

Too much blue exhaust smoke?

If a vehicle is exhausting blue smoke this is a bad indication that the engine is burning oil and should be inspected by a professional at the earliest convenience to determine the fault.
blue exhaust smoke
Most common reasons for such an issue are…

  • The engine has become worn through old age or excessive heavy driving habits leading to internal oil leaks.
  • Defective or worn piston rings are allowing oil to enter the combustion chamber. If this has occurred the vehicle will also be experiencing loss of power, especially under load.
  • An incorrect oil used during the last oil change or poor quality oil which is too thin is causing the oil to escape into the combustion chambers through the seals. This is oil is then being burned and showing up as the blue smoke exiting the exhaust.
