Hi the white are bubbles is leaking commpression between cylinder and waterjacket and its not air coming out of the dip stick its blow by the engine either cannot deal with excess back pressure caused by worn pistons or a faulty pcv stuck so check your compressions i suspect headgasket and replace the pcv as it should have been changed by now anyway yates210456

I need to know how to tell if i have a blown head \head gasket


If you car is overheating often and white smoke come out the tail pipe when running, good chance it is. Easiest way it to check is the fluid in the radiator - look for oil floating on the top. If your cooling reservoir (off white container connected by a smaller black hose to the radiator) has fluid in it, check it or you can open the radiator cap (only when the engine is cool - hasn't been running - don't touch it until it's sat for a few hours if you used it) and use a turkey baster or similar to pull some fluid out. If you see some oil floating, it's most likely a head gasket.

What to do when 2006 Chrysler Pacifica engine temp warning light comes on?


Do not continue to operate. Operating an overheated engine will cause the engine to fail.

After the engine has cooled,
Confirm that the engine has coolant.
Confirm that the reservoir is full to the mark
Start engine and confirm as engine gets warm cooling fan at radiator turns on

Confirm that the rubber engine belt is working
Put in car heater to full hot and blower on.
Confirm heat is hot from car heater.
If heater is not hot possible water pump failure or air in coolant system keeping the coolant from circulating.
Allow to cool completely.
Remove cap start engine and observe coolant flowing at or near cap. Observe bubbling or exhaust gases coming from radiator

Check for water in oil by pulling dip stick
  • White smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Overheating engine
  • Bubbles in the radiator or coolant overflow tank
  • White milky oil
  • Significant loss of coolant with no visible leaks
If milky likely a blown head gasket

Hope this helps?

The header tank bubbles when I start my 1998 freelander 20T2n engine


check your radiator fluid to see if it has oil in it, and check your oil to see if it has radiator fluid in it that's a common problem with a head gasket leak, also if you notice a lot of steam coming out of your exhaust because it can get through to the piston and burn the antifreeze, but if it's bubbling in your overflow tank it might just be a bad radiator cap keep that in mind good luck

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60E trans problem


O.k. the small hose that you have coming out of the case is the trans vent. The one going up the firewall is for the transfer case. The trans vent should be hooked to the transfercase vent. You say you have a 383? Are you running the fuel injection system. Is this a 4L60E (the stock transmission). If you have fluid coming from the vent, the transmission is getting too hot. Replace the cooler. Do away with the radiator cooler and add one to the front in front of the condenser.

Lots of back fireing. does not run fast, white smoke


White smoke is generally a sign of buring antifreeze which is a sign of a blown head gasket. Pull your oil dip stick and see if the oil is milky white. Open your radiator cap and start the truck. Do you have lots of bubbling going on or is there a oily residue in the antifreeze? If so these are other signs of a blown head gasket.
