Smoke out Exhaust...uh..ohhh..!!
Started up my p-x today to kick out some excess water...started no problem...and no unusual activity....shut down then prepared to run ant-freeze through it...started it up again then pumped anti freeze...shortley into this...a large amount of white smoke began pouring out exaust...BIG-TIME....when pulling plugs to fog cylinders notice oil on them.
Blown rings?...something else?....would starting in low temperatures cause a catastrophic failure somehow?....not looking forward to the answer
the temp at time was about 46-48

It not that cold here yet lol... and no the cold wont wreck the motor... It will smoke a bit when you run the antifreeze through it. Do you have a pic of the plugs and do all 3 look the same?

I don't remember it smoking like that last year when i winterized...no pic's of plugs...they are pretty black....LOL...i only guessed at temp...thought i was fairley accurate though.......Why would the anti freeze make it smoke?

White smoke doesnt seem like burning oil. if its burning oil that bad should look more a blue colour. white usally means burning coolant...

thanx for your reply...Cheers..!!

might just be running rich cause of the cold or just running rich. If you had that much visible oil on the plugs that thing would be shaking like a window waver and yes it will be blueish smoke. Heat plus cold temps you have = smoke period condensation
