Hey!

Mike, You need to check a couple of things, check your radiator now that your thermostat is ruled out! also water pump, if you heard some squealing lately could be a possibility! You ruled out head damage, no water in oil tail pipe cool too! My thought is water pump, or radiator! I Can talk to my bro tommorrow a mechanic since 16 and now 43 Make sure your fan is working too.

I have a 1992 buick skylark v6 3300 it is overheating no leaks no oil in the water or water in the oil no antifreeze in te exaust just changed the thermostat


Probably the water pump, when the engine is completely cool, open the radiator cap, start the engine, turn on the heat full, and check to see if you have circulation at the radiator cap nosal you should see movement of water if pump is good....

How to replace head gaskets


What engine? Has thermostat been changed? You say it has not overheated since, but water not circulating. If water/coolant wasn't circulating, it would be overheating. Please explain a little more or confirm why you think that.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


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.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Losing fluid and car is overheating - no visible leaks.got opinion from radiator people say head gasket is blown can this be true ? no oil in water or water in oil


you can have a blown head gasket without mixing of liquids, the coolant is going out the tailpipe, and engine compression is overloading the coolant system pressure

Water coming from tail pipe.


how much water? it is possible for water to get in there and some to form in there. i see many cars with water coming out the exhaust pipe. this is what contibutes to rusted mufflers. is there a performance issue with the vehicle? any check engine light? look at the oil dip stick for milky oil meaning water is mixing with it. Is the coolant reservoir dry? please reply and good luck

Oil keeps getting in to the water


if thats the case you should have water in the oil also, that means you have a blown head gasket

Leaking oil put of tail pipe, is the cooling sensor important, head gasket blown how do you know


Never seen oil come from tail pipe (unless a piston has a broken ring or a hole burned in it.) Cooling sensor tells the computer the engine temp and the computer turns the fan on through the fan relay. Very important for it to work. A blown head gasket will make the engine overheat, can cause white smoke from tailpipe, coolant loss and extremely rough running. Also can cause coolant in engine oil or oil in radiator. What you may be seeing may be water mixed with carbon from the inside of the pipe. Excessive water coming form pipe is also a head gasket symptom. A compression test or cylinder leakdown test or a radiator hydrocarbon test will tell you if gasket has failed.
