    Is this Normal for a Diesel Mechanic Shop?

    Dieselwrench Seen this at the diesel mechanic shop next door at lunch and just wondering if this is normal.

    Depends on what's "lit up" in the shop. And if it's supposed to be, or not.

    If there's no lights and sirens within 20 minutes, or so, things are likely fine.

      Pretty sure it wasn't suppose to be lit up and I watched smoke like this for at least 5 minutes before I walked away.

        Too much transmission fluid in the diesel tank.
        Or maybe the hickory was a little too green for the smoker.

          I started a truck one time in front off our shop on Reno. It took a long time to get it started but when it did start I fogged all four lanes of Reno bad enough that cars were turning on their headlights at 1:00 on the afternoon. The engine had blown the tip off any injector and was dumping fuel into a cylinder.

            That pic isn't too out of the ordinary. Way too much fuel and not enough air will smoke like that.

              Turbo came apart and way pumping engine oil in the intake. Turbo run away. Don't know if they got it put out before the engine cratered.

                That'll do it too. The pic looked like kinda gray smoke. Burning oil is usually bluish and burning coolant is white.
