2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

So my 2014 Ecodiesel has 34,300 miles on it. I am seeing white smoke come out from the hood and the past two times the smoke has started to blow into the cabin from the vents; I have had this happen about 5 times total. It does have some what of a faint smell to it. It last maybe a total of 3 to 5 minutes each time. I haven't been able to recreate it for the dealer of course. Does anyone know what could possibly be happening. I added a video so that you can see the location that it looks like the smoke is coming...not the best video but at least you can see the location. Not something I am happy with considering the price and how new the SUV is.

Might help if you remove the engine cover? Give us a better view....

But it looks like its coming out by your air intake. Did you make sure its seated properly?

I haven't touched it so that is something that I can mention to the dealer.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

Is it only when running the headlights? I got faint smoke coming from under the hood by the grill when my wife got home one night and the headlights were on. The next time it happened the headlights were on as well (burning smell) but no smoke. The smell was something like paper as well (not rubber or plastic).

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

Does it smell 'damp' kinda like hot water? Could it possibly be your HVAC drain dripping on to your exhaust.

It does have a smell but I wouldn't say that it is damp. It's def something that a smell that I didn't want to breath in.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

The dealer finally figured out the issue. The DEF injector was leaking and spraying onto the exhaust creating the smoke. They replaced it and it cost $460 under warranty so im sure it would of been around $700 without it!

Happy to hear it's fixed.

You kind of mentioned DEF in your previous post
It's "def" something that a smell that I didn't want to breath in.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

Good catch there....

Sounds like you need to install one of Dom's DEF protection plates

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

i am having the same issue right now on my new engine that was replaced under warranty. I didn't have this on my inital engine that came from factory. It almost smells like diesel exhaust fumes from inside the car. Smoke is more prevalent after some freeway driving.

I have 700miles so far on the new motor. 20,000miles on the car.
