YOU NEED TOOLS AND A HAYNES REPAIR MANAUL TO SHOW AND TELL YOU HOW HEADS ARE REMOVE.YOU NEED A STRAIGHT EDGE LIKE FRAMING SQUARE AND FEELER GAUGE TO DECK THE THE HEAD TO CHECK FOR WARPAGE.OR THE MACHINE SHOP CAN CHECK WARPAGE ON HEAD.SEE IF REPLACED HEAD GASKET AND DONT CHECK WARPAGE WHICH SHOULD NOT EXCEED 0.004 INCH.IF SO YOUR NEW HEAD GASKET WILL LEAK ALSO.

What does it mean when check engine light is flashing and white smoke coming out of exhaust pipe along with raw fuel? 2003 Chevy Tracker


Ordinarily, rough running with a raw gas smell indicates a fuel pressure regulator or fuel injector problem, but that usually produces grey or black smoke. The white smoke may be steam, which is more serious.

If the exhaust also smells somewhat like maple syrup (that's what burned engine coolant smells like unless you are running water without antifreeze), or your coolant level is going down rapidly, you probably have a bad head gasket, cracked block or head that is leaking coolant into one or more cylinders. That's what would produce a large amount of steam, and the uneven power production is what makes the engine vibrate strongly. The mixture control system is being all messed up because the coolant in the cylinder is preventing proper combustion - on the one hand the knock vibration sensor is telling the computer that the engine is running too lean, but on the other hand the oxygen sensor is detecting the rich condition. A readout of the engine computer would be interesting to see.

Run the engine as little as possible until you get this checked out. A coolant leak into a cylinder can cause quite a bit of secondary damage.

You may be able to identify which cylinder has the problem by removing the spark plugs and inspecting them. A wet spark plug is confirmation of my hypothesis. If you have a borescope (video camera on a flexible tube or with a fiber optic bundle with a lens on the end), you can peek inside the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Otherwise, pull the head to see where the coolant leak is.

White smoke coming out the tail pipe on my 09 traverse


Usually white smoke from the exhaust means that there is radiator coolant leaking into one or more cylinders. Blue smoke is normally from burnt engine oil. Check your coolant level and you will probably find it is down below the full mark.

Have a leak down test done on all cylinders and this will show up a leak in the combustion chamber(s). You will also likely have combustion gasses leaking into the coolant passages and that can cause some overheating of the coolant. If you see bubbles in the coolant , once the engine has warmed up so the coolant begins flowing through the radiator, then you have a compression leak into the cooling system and in that event you will also have coolant escaping into a cylinder or cylinders and producing white smoke.

Coolant leaking into the cylinders will be via a blown head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both. If you have run the engine in an overheated condition this will certainly produce a damaged head gasket and possibly damage to the cylinder heads as well.

2000 mazda 626 over heated and turned of but not before white smoke came out tail pipe , now won't turn over , sounds really rough when I try.


It probably does have a blown head gasket unfortunately. And it will not crank? or just not fire up?

If it will not even crank, the motor may have seized. If so the damage may be so severe that another motor from the wreckers yard is the best option, unless you are handy with a wrench..

My 2012 BMW 750 I WHEN IDLES WHITE SMOKE COMES FROM THE TAILPIPES with 36,000 miles what do that means


White smoke means engine coolant is entering the engines cylinder's . Which could be a bad head gasket , cracked head or block , or intake manifold gaskets ! I wouldn't drive it like this you could damage the engine more !

My 1998 Mazda millenia Is shorting white smoke more tell pipe what could be the problem


It is common to see white exhaust smoke when first starting a car, especially on cooler days. This is generally steam caused by condensation. As the engine warms up and the condensation dissipates the white exhaust smoke (steam) is no longer seen. If excessive white exhaust smoke is present well after the engine warms up, it is necessary to have the car inspected for possible internal coolant leaks. Indicators of an internal coolant leak include billowing white exhaust smoke accompanied by a sweet odor or a low coolant reservoir level. An internal coolant leak can also contaminate the engine oil giving it a frothy, milky appearance. Even small amounts of coolant entering the combustion chamber will produce white exhaust smoke. One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.
Never remove the radiator cap or coolant reservoir cap while the engine is hot or running as it can cause serious injury; always allow the car to cool down completely first. Checking for a low coolant level in the reservoir is the first step in determining if coolant loss is causing the white exhaust smoke. If the coolant reservoir is at the proper level but excessive white exhaust smoke is present, a cooling system pressure check is required to determine where, if any, coolant leaks are located. THESE LEAKS WILL CAUSE SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE! Have the car inspected immediately.

My toyota after along drive white smoke comes out off the silencer could it be the turbo because the turbo shaft play.


White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area. The cylinder is where the fuel and air mixture are being compressed and burned. Any amount of antifreeze that enters this area will produce a white steam that will be present at the tailpipe area.
Check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.

How did antifreeze get in the oil or cylinder in the first place? The engine probably overheated and a head gasket failed due to excessive heat, thus allowing antifreeze to enter the cylinder (Where it is not meant to be).

Most likely it is oil smoke, if the smoke is black, and the check engine warning light is on, it could be over fueling for numerous reasons.How many miles on the engine?
