It can be the head gasket or the head might be cracked or warped or or it could be a intake gasket

1990 Geo metro popped and poured white smoke out


its a GEO POPPER.
"no oil up on crank case"

no idea what that means.??????
yes PCV valve. do clog.

white smoke at end if tail pipe.
you didnt say where,?

white smoke has 2 reasons.(tail end)
Steam and oil.
steam goes away fast and looks just like moms tea pot. and smells sweet, like the antifreeze in engine. (rad cap off ,sniff sniff, cold engine)

oil burning, smoke is very very slow to go away.
and smells like , blush burned oil.
if not sure what burn oil looks like or smells like
take out the dip stick on a hot engine
let it drip to the hot exhaust manifold there.
now you know. and is a key diagnostic skill.


no oil seen on dip stick end?, you mean that?
well you need to keep that from happening,
doing weekly service, and for sure old cars.
26 years old.

low oil invites blowing up a good engine.
for sure.
if it did that smoke is oil
if it did 10x worse, both .

my wild guess is you meant to say
I didnt see oil leaking on top of engine.
right?

if the engine backwires to the air cleaner
you forgot to replace the cam belt every 60k miles
the pcv will also be clogged, on cars not getting proper service, super colon.
if the PCV clogs,engine may leak oil bad.

this engine btw is a G10 3 cylinder.
with TBI injection.
we can talk TBI all day, owned one.

white smoke can come from many places
exhaust manifold, leaks of oil can land there
engine can back fire to air cleaner making smoke.
tail end.
steam is much worse. ill not delve in to that yet/.

White milky substance in oil on dipstick when i checked it


You have a blown head gasket. Water is bypassing your head gasket and has mixed with your oil. Take to your mechanic, will have to resurface cylinder head, new gaskets, water pump, timing belts.

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

Either the thermostat is sticking or you have a blown head gasket.
Also if your hoses have started to wear and you are loosing coolent this will cause the same problem. Check the engine oil if it has a milky apperance water may be getting into oil sure sign of a head gasket problem

Milky substance in the radiator


You have oil entering the radiator and when combined with water makes a milky substance. Oil entry is normally through a defective cylinder head gasket.

Water in the oil on a 1990 geo prizim


Your head gasket must be bad, allowing coolant to flow into an oil passage in the head.
