Do a compression test to tell if its a head gasket or not.

Why is a very strong gas smell coming from my tailpipe?


White smoke is water vapor and in this cold climate it is normal. Strong gas smell is not normal although you may smell some while engine is warming up. Bad cat converter can produce smells, but usually more like rotten eggs. If engine is running rough and seems rich, check coolant temp sensor. Bad converter can cause stalling too. Otherwise, idle speed is controlled by idle air contol motor which can get dirty and stick. Any codes set?

1994 Ford Mustang blowing white smoke that smells like pure gas. Gas running straight through and getting about 5 mile per gallon.


Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

Smell gas in oil, check engine light on, collant


Your brother is on to something I believe.

Your coolant is rusty or milkshake-like?

If you arent leaking coolant or oil I think the both being burned in the combustion chambers! Look for oily steam at the tailpipe!

The check engine light probably came on because your O2 sensors are both shot from the excessive oil and coolant baking onto them!

Gas smell in exhaust


you have either a blown head gasket or cracked head. The white smoke is coolant passing through the engine and exhaust. The gas smell is from compression leaking past the gasket or head, pushing fuel vapor into the air.

Gas smell in the oil.....have to put coolant in often


It sounds as if you have an intake gasket leaking. This will cause both problems. The coolant is probably going out the exhaust. The fuel is probably loading up in the cylinder and leaking past the rings or valve seals.

Mitusbishi eclipse will not start


YOU HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET THAT IS`ALLOWING THE COOLANT TO GET DRAWN INSIDE THE CYLINDERS AND THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE WHITE SMOKE(STEAM) IT SMELLS LIKE GAS BECAUSE THE SPARK PLUGS ARE WET WITH WATER/COOLANT. HOPE THIS HELPS. SORRY FOR THE BAD NEWS. IT CAN BE FIXED BUT IT WON'T BE CHEAP. BEST OF LUCK.

Low coolant and oil smells like gas. No white/blue


let your car idle go back to the tail pipe if it seems to be steaming alot , and or smells like antifreeze then you have a head gasket problem or a gasket leak alowing in directly into your engine
