It sounds like you have either an intake gasket leak or a head gasket going bad. Did you check compression on all cylinders or just 1?

    I check all the cylinder they each had 155 compression. Runs very good and starts up right away.

SOURCE: troubleshooting air conditioner thermostat 1995 nissan pickup hardbody

The thermostat is located where the lower radiator hose goes into the engine. I've had to replace mine, and it took a while to find it. I found the easiest way to get at it is to remove the power steering pump (hoses attached) and set it over to the side to get at the bolts on the thermostat housing.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: How do you remove the door panel of a 1995 Nissan XE Pickup

Not sure about the 95, but to remove it on my 94 i just pulled on once corner till the fastener poped out, then worked slowly around removing each fastener. Be careful as the the door pannel is quite flimsy but if the 95 is the same as the 94 it should be fairly easy to remove.

SOURCE: High mileage oil change for a 1994 Nissan Pickup; what to use?

mkimdaly: There is a product on the market called "Restore" which is an oil additive designed specifically for high mileage engines with oil consumption and smoking problems. Mind you, it will not fix evey situation, but it has resolved quite a few on cars which have come through my shop. "Mechanic in a can".
If I am not mistaken, it is designed to fill in small scratches that may be in the cylinder walls. I also has an effect on lifters and on oil seals. There is also a product put out by "Lubromoly" it is a product made in Germany and you may not find it on the shelves at normal retailers, but possibly carried at repair shops which specialize in imports. I carry this product line at my shop and have had good luck with many of their other products as well. There is a company called "Worldpac" but they only sell to repair shops. The product line I am talking about, I have to buy must be bought by the case.
I am sure there may be other comparable products on the market which you may find at "OReilley's or Autozone. You need to speak to their sales people and possibly ask to talk to one of the people who are at their wholesale desk at the back who may be even more familiar with the products. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY! The main reason many products don't seem to work well, is that they are not applied as the manufacturer had instructed in the can and/or box! A product as old as the hills and twice as dusty is "Marvel Mystery oil" I have used it on engines which had little or no compression and pulled the plugs, poured the oil in the cylinders and let it sit over night. I would spin the engine over in the morning to blow the oil out, screw the plugs back in and fire the engine back up. There have been many times than I have had engine regain compression because the oil freed up rings that had stuck to the pistons. This oil can be added to the motor oil and the GAS! As far as the type of oil to use in the engine: It really depends on how well you have taken care of your engine to begin with. If you have done frequent oil and filter changes and the engine is relatively clean inside, I would run a 20W-40 with the additive and in my shop, I happen to use Castrol. Although most premium oils will perform quite well. If you have an engine with a lot of sludge buildup inside it, the sludge is probably the only thing holding it together. WARNING!!!!! DO NOT USE ANY KIND OF ENGINE FLUSH DESIGNED TO CLEAN THE INTERNALS OF THE ENGINE! When I refer to this, I mean a product that instructs you to put it in, run the engine for a while, drain it and then replace the oil and filter. YOU WILL IN ALL LIKELY HOOD DO MORE HARM TO THE ENGINE THAN HELP!
I hope I have answered your question.
Good luck.

White smoke at exhoust and puch water out of the radiator


Blown head gasket or cracked head. I'll guess this happened after overheating the engine. The compression of the affected cylinder will blow coolant out of the radiator and coolant in the cylinder burning shows up as white smoke in the exhaust.12_24_2012_1_46_50_pm.png

How to fix white smoke on start up?


This may not be anything but you might consider looking to see if you have a similiar set up on your Saturn:http://www.clublexus.com/forums/sc-400-300/544821-for-anybody-experiencing-white-smoke-at-startup-check-this-out.html

Depends on how much smoke you are getting as to how serious it could be. Just a little could be nightly condensation. A good bit could be failing valve seals. You don't have oil in the water or water in the oil and I am assuming you aren't loosing water on a daily basis so no blown head gasket, we hope.

My 1995 ford escort is losing water/coolant and is smoking white out back and spluttering. there is no water in oil + no oil in water. what can it be as it doesn't seem to be the head gasket.


This sounds like a blown headgasket, or cracked block. You should get a compression test done on each cylinder just to make sure.

I have a 1991 nissan pickup. The engine started getting hot, as i was driving it lost power and eventually shut off. I didnt see any water leaking so I checked the oil and antifreeze was in the oil. Now it...


I would really be concerned about the antifreeze in oil, sounds like head gasket at least or head, block problem, even if you dont see antifreeze leaking, the engine can burn it and exit through tail pipe-white smoke or steam (beyond just cold start-up)

My Isuzu d/cab diesel gives out white smoke when i start the engine is that bad?


In the morning,it is quite common for some white smoke to appear due to the difference in temperature of the outside and the heat of the engine,but should stop after warming up.If there is excessive smoke,there could be more wrong,possibly a blown head gasket.Try having a pressure check done on the cooling system as well as a compression test done on the cylinders.

White smoke out the tail pipe


Most times white smoke out exhaust is an indication of leaking or blown head gasket Might be an area to start looking.

Pickup is getting hot, have put a new radiator, thermastat, new sensor. now is smoking out the tail pipe and trying to die. There is not water in the oil.


You don't always get water in the oil, with blown head gasket, if the smoke is white or like steam, back head gasket, engine got to hot.Your getting water in the cylinder's, that's why it's running with a cylinder miss.
