I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. About a year ago after starting, it started jerking, the engine was loud and black smoke a lot of black smoke coming out of exhause, brought to mechanic opened hood an


Did any of these mechanics put a scanner on this car? There would have been codes(02 sensors, catalytic converter, map, mass air flow,and coolant sensor could have been some of them). Black smoke is too much gas/fuel. Another thing that wouldn't throw a code would be the injector/s stuck open (would result in hard starts). Since you replaced two Map sensors, I wouLd also check for power and ground at this sensor. Check the wires good, as it could be inttermitant.

Leaking, overheating --- *fixed* then puff of white smoke 1 week later


I'm not taking sides in this. So what I am going to say is more or less neutral.
There is a big possibility you damaged the head gasket when the engine overheated last week. The dealership would have no way of knowing this if it was not yet leaking into the engine when they replaced the water pump.
Once the water pump leak was fixed, the system would be running under normal pressure which could finish off the weak head gasket.
You can not see a damaged head gasket without removing the cylinder head. And you have two heads with two gaskets.
So, IF the head gasket is now blown there is a good chance they did not know it last week. It could also be a cracked cyl head or leaking intake manifold gasket. Or all of the above.

How do you know which head or gasget is blown/


Try this to see if helps you figure this out. Try filling up the radiator with water. Start your engine with the radiator cap off look for bubbles the bigger the bubbles the worse the leak. Look for tan colored oil on the dipstick. When oil mixes with water it turn a creamy tan color.

Overheating Problem


There are a lot of places it could be leaking from,it could be a head gasget, freeze plug, intake gasget, ect. best thing to do is pressureise the cooling system and look for a leak, and watch the pressure guage on tester. Do you have the right radiator cap? or at least the right # cap. That is something thats over looked a lot, and they go bad too.

Losing coolant in my radiator but i don't have any visible leaks. then i check my oil to find that it is a almost tan color does this mean my head gasket is going


I can' say its a head gasget but if its the color you say it is means water is getting into the oil some how. It would be best to have a cooling pressure test done to determine if its a head gasget or something else causing this.

Losing oil through exhaust and white smoking, what could be the problem?


Sounds like head gasget, Does it run hot? Does it use coolant? Better do a pressure test on the cooling system, Just to see where its leaking, most likely it going into a cyl. because of a blowen head gasget or maybe a cracked head. Thats why the white smoke out exhaust.

Blown head gasket. what is the cause? there is very high pressure in the radiator and eventually a lot of air and little coolant. it then starts over heating because all the coolant gets pushed out at the...


Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it **** the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find
