What happening is you have a bad head gasket or its starting to go bad. As long a little oil is getting in to cylinders causing that smoke once it warms up that gasket is expanding thus the smoke stops. I would keep an eye on oil levels if it gets milky replace gasket asap. Could also be intake gasket but highly doubt it this sounds like a worn head gasket.

    If it is a bad head gasket, does the car lose power?My car has no lost power but it releases a cloud of white smoke from the exhaust. When i drive for a while, the white smoke disappears.When i switch off the engine for about 10 min and then start the car again, the car starts smoking again.

If the white smoke is from unburned fuel, it can be caused by any of the following.
Low compression caused by worn or damaged piston rings, a blown head gasket or a cracked head.
Poorly injected fuel caused by a faulty or leaking injector or from a faulty fuel pump.
A badly timed engine, there may be a possibility of the cam belt having jumped a toot if it is worn.

SOURCE: Ford Focus Engine System Fault warning light

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

SOURCE: problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03

This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.

Ford focus 1.6 petrol white smoke and smell of petrol


I'm assuming this is not a diesel...

White smoke would be very unusual, it would usually be steam rather than smoke. If I'm right, then it will be dissipating very quickly unless it's in freezing temperatures?

To get white smoke AND the smell of petrol best guess is that it's a cracked cylinder head or head gasket allowing coolant into the cylinder, the leak is so bad that the cylinder is unable to fire so the raw fuel from that cylinder is being pushed out the exhaust, along with the water (steam).

An accompanying symptom would be running rough/chugging, most noticeable at lower revs. If you drive the car like this then you'll quickly damage the catalytic converters in your exhaust so don't!

Ford focus tdci not starting and white smoke coming out of the exhaust


It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day.
Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.

You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff

White smoke came from the exhaust pipe and the car killed in motion. I check all fluid levels were fine, once i started the care again and proceeded the accleration was a bit rough. After a few minute


white smoke mostly is caused by over fueling so what i suggest you do is first of all check if there is no leak on the injectors and if there is none which means your valve sterm seals are damaged.When the head gasket is blown out you may have problems like :-loosing power when driving,over heating,idling problems and oil mixing with water, its not your head gasket.

Started my 2002 ford taurus this morning just fine. Let it run for about 15 minutes before leaving fo work. When I came out my car was idling very rough and white smoke would come out the back then...


Have it checked at your local garage. White smoke from the exhaust system.....normally means a cracked cylinder head gasket. I would check the oil dipstick to ensure that there is no coolant in the oil pan. Coolant in the oil pan could mean a cracked cylinder head......a more costly repair.

White smoke coming out of exhaust, engine not overheating loss of power does not appear to be losing water


White smoke from the exhaust is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. You say no coolant loss, or overheating. Is there a white foamy substance under the oil cap, & air bubbles escaping from the radiator? If so you have a leak and more than likely it is a blown head gasket. I would have a cooling system pressure test run. Do not continue to drive this Ford in this condition. Something is not right and you need to find out what is going on.

2006 ford focus tdci 2.0 not starting


When was the last time you drove this Focus?
The easy route is to treat the tank with chemicals.
Look of ISO-HEET or similar water removal additive. MAKE SURE IT IS 99% or better Isopropal Alcohol.
The second product is from Starbrite call Startron additive. You can find it in a boating supply store.
Follow the direction on the bottle and you should able to convert the bad diesel fuel to usable state.

My truck blows white smoke


Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck
