Q: Car smoking by firewall

asked by on

My car was smoking by the firewall.

A: The smoke could be caused by oil leaking on...

The smoke could be caused by oil leaking onto the exhaust manifolds from the intake, or valve covers leaking oil. Smoke coming from an electrical short or oil leaking can be a fire hazard, and should be checked as soon as possible for your safety. I recommend that you have a top-rated mechanic come to your home or place of business to determine the source and cause of the smoke immediately.
