White smoke
« on: May 04, 2010, 08:23:56 PM »
My buddy got the mci9 he is thinking about buying started.  He says even after an hour he still has white smoke, and lot of it.  Any ideas.  My first thought is to get the old fuel out and replace with new.  Just for shizzles and grins.  Any thoughts ?

Wayne, it will be a compression issue, bad injectors with good compression it would be black smoke

White smoke=unburned fuel with low compression-or it could be steam from a cracked head leaking coolant into the combustion chamber.  Good Luck, TomC
