You may have to remove the engine cover to get to it and it should be on the front/top of the intake manifold on the left. (see picture http://www.autoclinix.com/Manifold3.htm).

What shpuld l do in the engine oil if there is coolant getting in one of my cylinders


If there is coolant getting into one of the cylinders you will probably have a failed head gasket.
Adding anything to the engine oil will not correct the head gasket problem.
As a temporary attempt at a fix, you can try adding an aluminized radiator sealant.
The permanent fix is to replace the head gasket.

I have a 2004 nissan maxima that has a water coolant gasket leak. I'm trying to fix it myself but I don't see any threads explaining how.I really need help


Which gasket is it you are talking about ... a cylinder head gasket or a water pump gasket?

A cylinder head gasket replacement isn't straightfoward or cheap to do and requires a lot of technical ability and tools... In the UK a cylinder head gasket replacement would cost about £1000 - probably the same in US dollars

If it is the cylinder head gasket, try a special additive in the coolant system. The images below are generic. You will find similar products in the USA:

For radiator/block sealant have a look for something like:

However, if you're determined to replace a gasket yourself, it's a workshop manual you need.

2005 Dodge Ram1500 White Mist/smoke from exhaust pipe.


One of the gaskets has blown at a point where the a water jacket is blowning into the cylinders but not mixing with an oil jacket on the heads. Try to use some Bars Leak and see if you can get it to seal and if not, their are also aluminum shavings mixed with sealer for some of the worse problems. If it seals you will then know that it will need a gasket replacement at some point

Replacing a cylinder head gasket is a miss or a hit. In some cases, just replacing the gasket may work. But if the cylinder head is bend, dealer may ask to replace it, because "machined aluminum heads rarely works". In this case the cost may be more than $1000. It is a good idea to send the cylinder head for inspection, in a machine shop. They charge $150 for inspecting, checking, cleaning and if necessary machining the head.
If the timing belt will be replaced this is an extra cost. If someone will just replace the gasket, on a bend cylinder head, it is more likely to blow out again. This problem can be solved if the gasket be replaced properly, checking and taking care for the cylinder head too.
As the coolant warms up, it expands and for that reason you have two marks at coolant bottle. Down cold and up hot. It is normal for the coolant to overflow from coolant bottle, if it is filled to the upper mark with engine cold, way up the cold coolant mark. Let engine to cool down overnight and set the level at coolant bottle at the lover mark cold. If it will overflow again this is a bad sign. The pressure at combustion chamber varies from 75 in idle up to 150 or more in higher RPM. If the cylinder head gasket is blown, then gases are blown into the cooling system, increasing the pressure, the radiator cap pressure relief valve is open and coolant is discharged in the coolant bottle. In such cases it is common for the coolant bottle to boil. You can observe gases discharging in the bottle, mixed with coolant, from the cooling system. These are symptoms of a blown cylinder head gasket. Because you replaced it once, there might be a bad (bend, deformed) CYLINDER HEAD too.
To find it out you have to perform cylinder compression test on your car (PROFESSIONALLY).
1. Start with a normal ("static") compression test. To eliminate rings, valves, holes in pistons, that sort of things. A normal cylinder balance test is also helpful (so you know which, if any, cylinder is presenting a problem). Engine should be warm.
2. Put all spark plugs but one back in. Ground that plug wire to prevent module damage. Disconnect that injector on a port fuel system.
3. Put your compression tester into the empty hole. The test can be done without a Shrader valve, but most people recommended leaving the valve in the gauge and "burping" the gauge every 5-6 "puffs".
4. Start the engine and take a reading. Write it down
5. Now goose the throttle for a "snap acceleration" reading. Reading should rise. Write it down NOTE: Don't use the gas pedal for this snap acceleration. The idea is to manually open then close throttle as fast as possible while without speeding up the engine. This forces the engine to take a "gulp" of air.
6. Now write down your readings for at least the bad cylinder (if there is a single bad cylinder) and maybe 2-3 good ones. Make a chart like this: CYL STATIC COMPR IDLE -RUNNING COMPR - SNAP Cyl 1 150 75 125 Cyl 2 175 80 130 Cyl 3 160 75 120 Cyl 4 160 80 125
7. ANALYSIS: Running compression at idle should be 50-75 psi (about half cranking compression). Snap throttle compression should be about 80% of cranking compression.
Consult a professional with the readings. If the gasket is to bad, you may have very low compression at lease in one cylinder.
If you will get a positive confirmation for a bad cylinder head then you have two options:
REBUILD THE CYLINDER HEAD or REPLACE IT.

Overheating sebring


Don't worry about filling a cylinder with coolant. If coolant goes into a cylinder, you will need to remove the head anyway to replace the gasket. The coolant itself will not damage anything unless you try to run the engine.
If that is somehow necessary you can purge the coolant by removing the plugs ans spinning the engine over (put rags over the plug holes or it will go everywhere)
You should not drive it 'till you find the leak or if the problem isn't serious, it will be.

My 1997 acura 3.5rl has been giving out white smoke from exhaust pipe for almost a yr now. when i first reported here someone suggested it could be due to a leaking gasket or broken head gasket or block....


it does sound like a head gasket allowing coolant into the cylinders and burning which creates the white smoke. a head gasket is a large job which requires you pull the cylinder head from the top of the engine. auto parts stores sell head gasket kits. you would also need the propper torque specs for the head as well as the sequence for tightening the head bolts.
before you go about replacing or having the head gasket replaced have you been losing coolant. is there any oil in your coolant or coolant in your oil your engine oil will look milky.

as i'm not familiar with an acura is the enginge a v-6 if it is it could also be the intake leaking as most v-6 engines cycle coolant through the intake manifold and can send coolant ito the cylinders if it is leaking.
