Every car has an exhaust. The exhaust is part of the combustion engine that ensures that exhaust gases are vented into the open air. In almost all cases the exhaust smoke has no color with a good running engine. If the exhaust gases are white, black or blue, there is probably something wrong with the engine. The additives below can remedy a smoking car.

Black exhaust smoke

When black smoke occurs, there is something wrong with the fuel. With black smoke, too much fuel is supplied, which is ultimately burned through the exhaust. In addition, black exhaust smoke may indicate a clogged or contaminated EGR valve. With the Lindemann Smokeless, the black smoke development will be reduced.

White exhaust smoke

White smoke often occurs in winter with a cold start. This white smoke mainly comes from water droplets and condensation. With white exhaust smoke, there is water in the emission. When the engine has reached its normal temperature, the white smoke must have disappeared. With the Service Cleaner from Lindemann you can completely clean your fuel system.

Blue exhaust smoke

In the case of blue exhaust smoke, oil enters the combustion chamber. The engine oil then enters the cylinders and is eventually burned with the air and fuel. Worn piston rings are a result of this. The Lindemann Worn Engine Treatment contains Teflon molecules that prevents the resulting space from filling up and prevents further wear.
