Why Does My Diesel Engine Have White Smoke?

Answer

When your diesel engine produces white smoke it means that the fuel that was put into the cylinder is not burning properly. It may be because your engine is timing out or it is fuel starved to the pump making the pumps timing not to function properly. It may also be that there is low engine compression or there is water or petrol in the fuel.
