When the smoke got a touch of white... then it's water from the cooling system. take care!

Re: gray smoke out of 2000 laredo

Does it smoke with a hot engine, or only when cold?
White smoke from a hot engine could mean a coolant leak from a head gasket.
Did you check the coolant level? Check it with engine cold in the overflow reservoir, but also check if the radiator is full.
More blueish smoke normally comes from burning oil.

Re: gray smoke out of 2000 laredo

Is it using oil? Could be worn valve stem seals.

Is that a easy fix? Or is that expensive?

Re: gray smoke out of 2000 laredo

The I6 will be cheaper then the V8, but no idea on prices. Did the seals on my V8 and it was quite a job. How much oil is it using now? I postponed mine until it was using 2 lts per 1000 km.

I would not worry too much for now. If it gets worse you can always decide to do something about it.

Re: gray smoke out of 2000 laredo

A stuck open PCV valve could also increase the oil consumption. Which engine?
