Question about Mazda RX-8
MY CAR JUST STARTED STALLING AND WHITE SMOKE IS COMING OUT THE EXHAUST PIPES AND SMELLS OF BURNING GAS. IT RUNS AND ONLY STALLS WHEN AT A STOP LIGHT.
White smoke tells me that you have entered the land of "blown head gasket" Is temp normal and coolant full? If not, you are definitely there. Job is not difficult for a reasonably experienced tech, if you're not, either get a manual and follow instructions very carefully, or, bring it to a reputable shop. Parts are under 300... Don't forget to replace cylinder head bolts (they might look OK but are not to be re-used.)
