Q: Smoke coming out of car and oil level is low

asked by on

Hello I have a 2003 Cadillac CTS It was working just fine but on the Highway I realized there was a cloud of smoke coming from my car I quickly got off the highway and noticed an oil leak pretty bad and white smoke was just coming from under my engine.. my car wasn't overheated or anything but now the oil pressure low light is coming on and when i start the car it sounds louder kinda like a tractor it will still drive but I haven't as I'm skeptical I might mess something up. I did check the oil dip stick and noticed oil was completely out. I had just recently did an oil change last week Hmmm ..

A: Hello. These are symptoms that you definite...

Hello. These are symptoms that you definitely don't want to hear. You are correct, don't start the engine, or drive the vehicle until you are able to get this fixed. Determine where the oil was pouring out (oil drain plug fell out, new oil filter was loose, and let oil under pressure escape, etc.) and correct the fault. Get the correct amount of oil back in the engine. Certainly, engine damage may have been done. I would recommend having an oil is low inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic. They will be able to diagnose the car in person and proceed with the appropriate fix.

Q: I unknowingly drove my car for the last 5,000 miles without an air filter, what potential damage has been done?

I do believe that no serious damage would have occurred. The air filter is made to prevent any leaves or other debris from entering the engine. However, due to the design of many newer intake systems, the debris would likely...

Hi there. Sounds to be that you're having issues with the transmission internal components. Shift solenoids switch between the gears, if one or multiple solenoids are malfunctioning it will cause your vehicle to not shift into those specific gears. Also,...

Q: I have oil smoking out of my oil dip stick and oil filler on my valve cover. Lots of smoke coming out of my PCV valve

Hey there. Worn piston rings create more crankcase fumes (i.e. the smoke you see coming out of breather tubes and orifices). This is called "blow-by". As long as the PCV valve stays clear, and the engine can handle the fume/clean...
